This rap game can be used for many purposes. When executed properly, it brings a good feeling. This community is full of that feeling. I’m happy to hear from the bro again. He brought us a new project compact with audio nutrition.
An ideal arrangement of bars, hardship, plus the balance of relativity. King Merlino remains on the chess board. I wanted to quote a favorite line, then I started to lose count. I was only one track in, Twofifteeenfreestyle. The suspenseful dramatization hosts J. Ford from the 215UFO camp. A warning of the pain you’re in for with Only The Real.
Hip Hop gives us a platform to free the mind. Sometimes you just gotta let it air out. Just Venting reveals the wolves in sheep’s clothing, I’m glad he chose the references he mentioned. The double standard against black America, and he covers his personal issues. We get some blue-collar rap in Making a Man. It’s a deep tear jerker about a difficult upbringing. This will give you the transparency you’re looking for.
Been Solid reminds me of a song from his debut album. He even plugs the title in one of his verses. It’s a more laid back flow, light instruments to emphasize the lyrics. Merlino always aims to inspire in rhyme. We Gotta Do Better is encouragement with tough love. The artist executes human’s achilles heels. So many things we do to contradict self. The narrative is closed with an alerting speech from B.F. Nkrumah.
This is an assortment of moods, touching all kinds of vibes. Merlino is in the pocket with lyrics and giving the crowd something tangible. Not an easy task to complete. The Power cadence is a favorite of mine from the first tune. Through the project, you will hear a lot more. Get your copy, press play, and enjoy.
The King updated me with the new vid. I told ya’ll about that TwoFifteenFreestyle! Now, you get to see the visuals. Load this up on YouTube, and watch through the end.
In a few hours you will be able to purchase this collector’s piece. Thanks to everybody playing the streams and buying the CDs. Now, the record you’ve been waiting for. Big thanks to CocareefRecords for distribution, plus his consistent support.
I also want to thank the talents involved on this project. The emcees: King Merlino, Jamal Gasol, Tripz 456. Theproducers: Ear 2 Tha Beat, Kelby Clarke (Runway MusicGroup), Million Dollar Manny, Fat Sound Records, and KZR Beatz.
About that time again, the streams need more fuel. We got it for you, right here! New entry from North Philly featuring one of our RAN residents. Picturea double layered bridge joining different eras, that's what this song reps. Young bull Killa Khy shows his ear for music selecting a Mobb Deep classic instrumental, Get Away.
The Trauma increases adding the vet, King Merlino. Instead of bragging about the stripes from the streets, it's a seek for better living. Easy to relate and agree with. Most rappers in the generation of Khy would do the opposite. Punchy flow with consciousness of self puts the lob where Merlino needs it.
"They rather own a Draco than be Draco," King refers to heads that are afraid to fight with fists. There are so many one liners, I'd prefer you get it from them. After hearing this, I could tell Spitta Season is still in session. The future of UFO 215 is solidified. We will keep looking for Killa Khy. Though, he sticks out, even in camou.
A must stream at SoundCloud! Repost recommended! Due to the shut down, my prior arrangements gotta be rearranged. So let's keep it Philly tonight... Big Thanks to all supporters, I received my first Hip Hop analysis from Rap Seminar. I get to join the other RAN artists that have had one. Praises to Yahweh!
