Album review: Dazzle rips the chord with fantastic ”Kingship”

The UK emcee Dazzle returns to uplift his community with the powerfully Hip Hop/Reggae infused album ”Kingship”.

The London artist impresses mightily and starts in menacing mood with ”Already (Intro)”. This sets up the game and then it’s the Reggae soaked ”Everybody Talkin”. I really like the buzz on this one and it flows through the speaker to get me listening intently.

London” heads through the whole city and stories of his life in the majestic city. This has a grimy UK feel to it and this is probably my favorite track. ”Foolish” is next up and this starts with some wonderful female vocals that I would like to find out more about. Dazzle soon swoops in and pulls out his bars that sinks through the track.

The album is complemented by the remaining tracks ”In My Head”, ”Special”, ”Roll Up”, ”Dangerous”, ”Real”, ”Just Another Day”, ”Know Now” and the remix for ”Immortal”. I enjoyed ”Special” the most here as it has a familiar sound and the song is one to groove with all might.

Dazzle certainly knows how to put on a show and this album is a highly skilled produced effort that gets me in the mood. This is one of the UK’s shining lights in the Hip Hop scene.

Georgia native Essence flows through with real questions on ”WTF Is Love”

Love is a tricky game. You fall in deep and then realize that it was lust. You feel let down by the person you opened your heart to and it hurts real hard. Drinking numbs the pain for a while but then you feel angry and feel let down all at the same time. Getting over it can be tough but a good lesson. You just want to find someone that loves you for you and has genuine intentions. Having good people in your life to help you get over these feelings is so vital.

Waynesboro is a city in Burke County, Georgia in the United States. This is the home of female R&B singer/emcee Essence. Oh boy, can this girl sing. She is hurting right now and brings the heat with this new lyric video release called ”WTF is Love’‘. I like her flow and she has mad skills as a singer and raps with absolute rigor on this one. The US performer is set for big things and I can’t wait to see her mature and get that huge breakthrough that she deserves.
