Omari kicks things off with ‘Judge A Tape By Its Intro’. An Intro either raises or lowers the bar of expectations as you begin to listen to a mixtape/EP/album, and it does just that and more. The Intro includes a sample of a Jay-Z interview where he basically says “Rap is poetry”. The bar was raised here for me; something different.
Mateo Vic released three singles in anticipation of his new album coming this year. My favorite is ‘Feel My Pain’; I can relate.
Beautiful Eulogy a group (consisting of some very talented individuals) signed to Humble Beast records released their second album; “Instruments of Mercy” late last year (2013). Very good music, heavenly dare I say. All the records on this album are favorites of mine starting from the intro.
I stumbled on this song on Humble Beast’s Youtube page. I love this song. Braille is a part of Beautiful Eulogy a group signed to Humble Beast Records.
I discovered Mateo Vic’s music in 2013 and I’ve remained a fan ever since. Memoirs of a Demon Slayer was released in 2013, and it was one of my favorite tapes. One of my favorite tracks off the album is ‘Rolling Stone’- listen and download below
