‘Genius’ isn’t a word I like to bound around a lot, but there is no adjective more apt when it comes to describing US Rap artist Neza and their explosive, witty and effortlessly charismatic sound.
Their latest album ‘My Imaginary Reality’ is a solid offering of meta urban alchemy which not-so-gently disturbs the complacency of your psyche by reminding you that none of your memories are real and your experience in life is entirely subjective.
The standout track, Class-N-Session, is the perfect introduction to Neza’s mischievously adrenalizing approach to Hip Hop. With a rap flow which could rival Butah Rhymes and their expansive multi-layered instrumentals which make it clear that there are very few constraints on Neza’s expression, it’s hard not to get excited about this artist’s potential. Hitting play on Class-N-Session instantly pays off, you’d be hard-pressed to find another contemporary artist who throws themselves into their mixes as viscerally as Neza.
