After dropping the successful first single, Ain’t NothingLeft To Say, we waited with baited breath for the full EP so you can imagine my excitement as the EP made it onto my laptop at 30Kb/s (yeah the internet was painfully slow that day).
The first thing I noticed was the tracklist, the only other feature besides the already known Smylie one was TRK. Dutch handled production while Tagz took over the vocal department. Did the package meet the expectations? After mixed reactions from the Ice Prince-featured rerelease of Don’t Leave Me my expectations were definitely on high.
The opening words on the intro really gets you into the zone. Hmmmmm this should be an interesting listen. Then before you know it we’re in EDM land, courtesy of LCD (nah not the TV Screen thing, LOVE COME DOWN). Some reggae what what is going on with Follow Me, at which point I’m losing interest like a conversation between a nun and a gigolo.
This wasn’t a total disappointment tho. I enjoyed Ain't Nothing Left To Say (Already known but, yeah), Been Real and Way Too Cool, featuring TRK, who KILLED his verse (on some Kendrick type of ish), the Gobbla remix is something more of an acquired taste. The Outro is also worth listening to.
Production is on point, evident by the crystal-clear sound quality but Zim Hip-Hop fans won’t enjoy this EP as it seems to be more Electro/Dubstep than Hip-Hop. The diversity worked on Dutch’s Live.Love.Dance, not so sure that they managed to pull it off here. Then again, maybe it’s an acquired taste thing but I couldn't stomach it. Too much experimentation for my liking. To make your own verdict you can download the EP below.
