Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon Artist: Web
Label: Web Since 1982
Out of the four singles I covered for RapReviews.com this week, this is the only one I have any real desire to spin twice. Unfortunately at only 2:44, it's also the shortest song of the four. Web's rap is a simple and uncluttered narrative about his 26 year love/hate relationship with Vancouver (British Columbia, that is). "No home in this place for emotional states/Everybody pokerfaced, empty hopes in their chase/For imperial wishes of false material dreams/Reachin out towards the lights, tryin to mirror the beams." That may sound a little dark and depressing, especially considering he describes VanCity as a place where it "always rains," but Rodney Hazard's piano backdrop is thoughtful and uplifting. Check this one out for free on Web Since 1982.
