Every time I receive an email from Sean J I know it is to announce some good news. As if it was not enough giving away two appetizers (DILLIGAF and Do better), FTG (Flip Them Guys) aka Sean J & Soy are now offering a last treat before the release of their WTF (Who The Flip) mixtape very shortly. This time, it’s not an exclusive track but it’s a great way to discover more from the very talented MC and his producer. One step from greatness was originally a bonus on the Internet version of Sean J’s album A Tree By Itself (if you haven’t heard it yet, you can check out my review here) and features Civil Mics member Shinobi Stalin and Hawaiian MC Daewon.
Once again, the prod is amazing, as are the delivery and lyrics. The three MCs, who are even joined by producer Soy, giving a shot at rhyming, spread a motivating message, acknowledging that they’re ‘one step from greatness’ but keeping on pushing and doing their thing. This is exactly the king of track that makes me feel confident about the future of hip-hop, as I realise that these young people are carrying the torch with brio and encouraging the listeners to think and appreciate the message.
All I have to say now is that the WTF mixtape should bless your ears very soon, and remind you that it is mixed by DJ Sureshot and presented by Reign Clothing Boutique. You can listen to One step from greatness below and you can download it here. Feel free to check out Sean J‘s website and Soy‘s blog as well for more goodness. Enjoy!
