In this day and age spitters often lack mind boggling bars. And those who posses that gift often times use it sparingly. People tend to leave out the essence of hiphop in the way that it’s supposed to speak a message and get people to understand life from their own angle or in a looking glass they never used. These three projects do exactly all of that. They all have different styles but yet they all are diverse from what you’d normally hear while at the same time take on the very concept that hiphop is even about: LIFE. Let’s see what these gentleman have in store, shall we. . .
Jimmy Stoner:Fear & Loathing
Now, I know what many of you are thinking off the top: “Tf this n***a calling himself Jimmy Stoner?” Sounds like a rock name more than a MC. I get it but don’t count him short off of that. The title Fear & Loathing may even scare you. Sounds like automatic depression but on the contrary my dear Watsons. This tape is pretty incredible bar wise. A new member of Verbal Vomit Enterprise Stoner emobdies everything from their hustle to talent and it shines in his music. Creatively he titled each joint to make your mind think what the Donald Duck is actually about to hit your eardrum. With a pleasant surprise each time he delivers ill bars and lines that create the most acid tripped stories in your head. (NURSERY RHYMES DOES NOT ENDORSE YOU TO USE ACID TO RELATE TO THAT SENTENCE.)
Production wise, it kills. The vibe on it has a chill on it with a twang of personality. Overall cohesive which is often rare for a lot of up and comers. Flat out the project makes sense, and we all need some of that. There’s some very dope features, one being VVE chief Chavis Chandler himself. Song after song you get caught up with the thrill of the music, the interesting tone of Jimmy Stoner’s delivery, and the bars being spat line after line. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss out on so don’t. We all can’t be smart, we all may not be simple, but one thing is for sure. After this project we all may be stoned. Jump on it!
Atari Jones:Weird Pt.4-Sleepwalker
Ladies, I’m going to let you know before this even begins. Mama will fight you for some Atari Jones! Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way. . .let’s get to business. Jones is a one of kind spitter. Not because he’s crazy with the bars or has a Midas touch in choosing the proper intrumentals to match his vision. He’s an alternative hiphop artist that proves he can surpass the best of them. In his new project Weird Pt.4-Sleepwalker Jones gives some dope stuff. Every jawn holds lines that’ll knock you up the head and make it turn. One of his strengths on this tape is his use of production. He throws his words along side of whatever vibe his music is and that mos def makes you feel what he’s saying.
Even if it’s your first time giving him a listen you can tell he’s growing as an artist. But not one of those “he’s whack and clearly not going to make it” types. Atari Jones has his own style from the way he spits his lines to the arrangement of his songs. He makes himself memorable with his shaping of life in your mind. His box is hard to escape from and you’re bound to find a couple joints to add to your playlist on the daily. He must be about something if he can make it on Indy Livemistapes.Com, let’s be honest. You never live life until you try something new. Get out that typical hiphop and see what this Ohio spitter has going. You’ll thank me now, later isn’t necessary.
Freshteno:A Breath Of Fresh Air
Not a lot of people can create stories. And even more major, not a lot of people can make you believe a story is true. But just like anything in life there’s always one and in this case Freshteno is the man who can do both successfully. With eyes constantly finding him and the build of ears listening to what he has to say it’s no wonder the hype about A Breath Of Fresh Air is true. Teno lives up to everything spoken about him and his project. You can tell after every song ending that not just sweat went into it but his very heartbeat came with it as well. Courageous to speak on his experiences Freshteno connects you to his songs and you either relate the picture at or hand or come to understand what he was feeling in the story line. Pure magic.
The instrumentals are boss. They all carry a different feel but flow nicely one into the other. One recent acalade that this Cali spitter can brag on but remains humble about is his single Sense making it to World Star Hiphop (I know n****s are about to go on Google to see if it’s true, here’s the link: SENSE). That’s major beyond major in today’s world, especially the urban one! But beyond that, life experiences and good times is all this man knows and he makes it clear in the songs he spits on. Freshteno keeps it 100 everytime and don’t think for a moment he can’t get a little cocky. He drops some fire that tells his competition they have nothing on him, ever. A real project is how Mama can best describe it. Get some reality in your life, it’ll save you baby.
