Kicking off with a track called ‘The Evening News’ this sixteen tracker hits hard from the start and really impresses. Ricky Lix on mic duties and Meezy on the boards, this is a meeting of two minds that has really paid off. Lix sounds gritty on some tracks and smooth on others, using full advantage of his distinctive voice and flow. Meezy beats remind me of early Jehst and Jazz T production, Evil Ed and Chemo, but his style is really unique with some great ideas. On tracks like ‘The Wrong Path’ you see depth and cuts like ‘Fresh As A Mofo’ introduces Streakz & LB from Music Lessons, a crew both Ricky Lix & Meezy are from. The album continues to explore into the mind of Ricky Lix who was serving ’28 Days’ while writing this project. For an idea of where he was at check out ‘What The Fuck Am I Gonna Do’ and you will know what it is. Great album, a great energy and something we will play on the regular. Quality UK Hip-Hop that should be in your collection.
