British magazine Blues & Soul have just published their June / July edition which is available in some selected stores now.
They are the latest to give a full endorsement to the debut album by Detroit’s Kid Vishis, “Timing is Everything”, out 22nd July 2014 on Seven 13 Entertainment. The review appears on page 32, (the publication prefer it is not re-produced in full here) but if you wanted to read the full version try tracking down a copy from your local store first of all.
The younger brother of Royce da 5 9 has produced a number of mixtapes in the past as part of the “Sick ‘Em” series, and toured internationally. The first official studio album has been long awaited, and as the 5 star review by Simon Redley reflects “This is a landmark release, a fantastic calling card to tell the world he has arrived and is here to stay. A great showcase, shining the spotlight brightly on a talented emcee”
The summary on the album which includes production by Mr Porter, Chase Moore of Hippie Sabotage, Nemisis and Nick Zervos concludes that Kid Vishis “has fierce rhyme skills and intelligent wordplay….it’s not the same old same old by any means. It’s fresh and it’s classy. Don’t ever underestimate the Kid. He’s a knockout”
The album will be available in digital and physical formats internationally, and can be pre-ordered with signed copies from the label now at www.seven13ent.com
Kid Vishis will be in New York 9th July – 13th July to take in the “Total Slaughter” event at the Hammerstein Ballroom as well as meeting with local press & media, and you can keep up to date with his latest news on twitter @KidVishis
