What It Sound Like?
(ODB Voice) "Thought yah wasn't gon see me?" Already know I had to touch this heater. Despite the release date, good music is timeless. I'm continuing tunes I wanted to write about towards the year end. As I catch up, you'll be pleased to hear Jamal Gasol, Lil Eto, and V Don! All artists we're fans of at RAN.
Jamal has branched out to multiple producers in the circuit over the past couple years. Though, the sounds vary, Gasol keeps the wheel in his lane. Providing the audio pack, Eto rides with him along the four track EP. Nearly every step of the way is scored by V Don. In a short matter of minutes he covered so much in tempo, harmonics, and melody. Full course meal for the emcees to devour.
The self titled tune is well selected for an opening song. Beat and vocals have a sense of controlled aggression. Mr 31 and Lil E exchange verses of street knowledge. A strong way to navigate the project. Only God Knows steps out the box with Patois narratives further decorating the Gasol painting. My first memory of this Rochester - Niagara team up is Statistic. As I stated, V Don handled nearly every step of the score. Eto displays veteran production skills, plus the signature verbals. Jamal at the time was developing a new burst of energy, and you could here it is his verses.
A feel good tune, that joint you gotta go back to from time to time. IADG closes with a solo from the Piff Man. The transition to music from the block bleeds through Eyes On The Prize. Listen to what the artist's adjustments have been like. Of course, you only get in glimpse by way of art. Let's be grateful they were able to make it through.
Digital versions of the EP are still available. With that said, biggups to the team for selling all physical copies! Thank everyone for their patience and genuine comments. More prayers of blessings for all!
