TimingIsEverything-Blacksheep

British online publication Blacksheep Magazine have reported on international hip hop for many years now, providing news, interviews and reviews of releases and artists who would draw from the more traditional elements of the genre

They are the latest to run the rule over the debut album by Detroit rapper Kid Vishis, the younger brother of Slaughterhouse veteran Royce da 5 9, and have afforded “Timing is Everything” a 4 star rating. Contributor Andrew Kay opens with the question “by being Royce’s kid brother, the question remains: is he a credible chip off the old block?“.

He then goes through the tracks produced by Mr Porter, Chase Moore (Hippie Sabotage), Nemisis and Nick Zervos before concluding “no one can fault the execution of making an album that says more than what’s on the tin – Kid has his own style, differing from his more established brother. But on the face of this, he’s in his own lane and on his way to a very credible career with (hopeful) longevity and much success.
