Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Evil Eye f/ Ali Vegas
Title: Purgatory
Label: Crown City Records

She's been labelled "the first lady of Crown City Records" but that to me just brings back memories of a Bay Area reap group from 2004, and I don't think that's what they were going for. In fact judging by her association with Ali Vegas it seems far more likely this is a duo of rappers from South Jamaica, a fact double-E reveals between verses when she says "Aiyyo Vegas! Show these motherfuckers how we do it in Queens baby." The good news for Evil Eye is that Ali Vegas is highly regarded on the mixtape scene, the bad news for her is he's not very well known outside of it. Vocally Evil Eye is a mixture of Remy Martin and Eve, which makes for a pleasant if somewhat unoriginal delivery. The role of thugged out bitch since to be pretty well filled in hip-hop these days, so it's doubtful she's going to break through in a major way, but the dramatic bombastic beat and Vegas guest appearance should get them some mixtape play.
