A shootout of rhymes: Ryn Scott’s new release Execute

I honestly wasn’t expecting such a shootout of rhymes when I hit play on Ryn Scott’s Execute, let alone my laptop speakers clipping out to the heavy beats.

My first thought went to that Slim Shady motif that conquered Hip Hop’s golden 90’s and Dre’s handprint in the piano loops spiraling into a melodic vortex that sucks down the cumulative mass of mainstream rappers we’re so saturated with.

Execute goes beyond those withered stems of rap bars by cultivating a unique sound through a type of storytelling that poeticizes simple but well-structured harmonies for an authentic pure Hip-Hop banger.

If this is the premise, Ryn Scott has a talent ready to bloom.

You can listen to Execute by heading over on Youtube.
