A couple of weeks ago some friends of mine decided to test my forthcoming album People Hear What They See on some random people on the streets of DC & London as an experiment... without telling me.
I was fascinated by the responses given in this video. I'm used to reading reviews of my album by journalists & to be honest... whether they're good or bad, I rarely agree with them. There was something so refreshing about my work being critiqued by total strangers. People with no agenda, just hearing music from an unknown artist & giving their honest opinion. In today's world, that's a rare thing.
I really enjoyed what the older gentlemen had to say about my album. There were a few points I felt I over produced a bit. Loved what they guy in the shades on the bench said too. All of it really! What I liked most was the fact that people who had never heard of me, surprisingly enjoyed my work. Almost as if, they were surprised they could like something they didn't know of. What does that say about how music is pushed today? If I was seen in videos, plastered on walls, on television... Would they have been less surprised in their appreciation of my work? (whispers the title of his album)
Background Track: Oddisee ft. Olivier Daysoul "Let It Go, Instrumental' (from People Hear What They See)
New Audio: Rilgood f/ Maffew Ragazino "Who Should I Be?"
It's a "Brooklyn thing" today as two of arguably the best spitters coming out of Brooklyn join up for this story track entitled "Who Should I Be." Rilgood made a strong imprint onto the game earlier this year with his JFK Mixtape that hit the blogosphere by storm and was spotlighted by some major media outlets such Hypebeast and Prefix Mag. Produced by Woodro Skillson, his compadre Maffew Ragazino provided an impressive assist on the record with fearless wordplay as well and will be featured on Rilgood's upcoming Great Expectations mixtape due out in July.
As promised, I'm back to drop off my latest (really oldest) work, "The 1rst Born EP". This project is a collection of songs written when I was 22-24 years old, originally planned to be my first ever project, that ultimately got scrapped. One day while looking thru my music folder, I found both the beats and rhymes, and saw how they both very personal and personable, showcasing what I was going thru at the time. This project is a departure from my usual "conscious/revolutionary" themed music, but still very honest and real. Let this serve as the "prequel" to my first ever solo project released in 2008, "The Only Child". This also serves as the first music project of this summers "Black Experience" campaign...
