TimingIsEverything-RapEssence

Younger brother of Slaughterhouse member Royce da 5 9, Detroit’s Kid Vishis releases his debut album “Timing is Everything” on 22nd July. Out on Seven 13 Entertainment, it includes production by Mr Porter, Chase Moore (Hippie Sabotage), Nemisis & Nick Zervos and can be pre-ordered with autographed merchandise from www.seven13ent.com

US online Rap Essence are the latest to run the rule over the album, with a track by track analysis which is then summarized :

Kid Vishis really impressed me on here. He changes up the topics and subject matter on almost every song, while still coming with aggressive rhymes and boastful battle raps at the same time. This keeps the album feeling fresh and gives each of the songs its own unique identity, which is something that is missing from a lot of hip-hop albums nowadays

Prior to the album releasing, he is also due to launch a new mixtape which will consist of original tracks only, so look out for a number of audio & official video releases over the next few months as well as widespread international media coverage throughout the summer.

Meanwhile, keep in touch with him on twitter @KidVishis and check out his single Heaven produced by New Jersey producer Nemisis

The release has received an extensive level of coverage from publications around the world, the latest review published by Hip Hop Dependency in the United States

A full endorsement of the lyricism, rhymes & beats on display opens with “From the instant you hear the first cut. you are both engaged and threatened by what you hear….He has thrown ‘today’s hip hop’ on it’s head and as a listener you can not remove the headphones” as the review goes into the finer points behind the key elements of the release, before summarizing “Each thump of the snare and each phrase uttered is a constant reminder of what hip hop should be in this day and age. Righteous Fury is an album that serves a matter of retribution for anyone who has devalued what hip hop is today.
