Remember when hip-hop was fun and not centered on money, drugs, and crime?
Well, Seattle area MC Tim Stiles sure does, as he collabs with the legendary beat maestros Visceral Candy. The result is a refreshingly fun musical experience full of dope rhymes, catchy hooks, and beats made to blow your speakers. Cranks the bass, crack a brew, light the spliff and enjoy real hip-hop. Tim Stiles voice is familiar and new at the same time while Visceral pushes forward their unique, hard hitting beats. Finally some real hip-hop for rap fans that remember when it was actual music. Stand out track is ‘You’re the Best,” which is a hilarious remake of the Karate Kid song.
This isn’t that garbage new mumble rap that is ruining music; instead, these dudes are making real beats, lyrics, and vibes with funky flavor.
