After listening through to the 19 tracks on display here, it’s no wonder a shock that legends like Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are throwing their weight behind the Cincinnati MC, and his knack for spitting well structured bars over a selection of pretty chilled instrumentals will definitely stand him in good stead…One thing is for sure though; this kid can definitely rap.” can be read in full HERE
