Some days start in a so-so way but then there is something that will make you feel good and put a smile on your face. What happened to me today was this: I was chilling on the net, minding my own business, when Twist from Civil Mics sent me this exclusive track, first single of the upcoming Vets of Kin album. I immediately liked the prod, courtesy of Shinobi Stalin (who is clearly as gifted creating music as he is writing and rapping) and the atmosphere of the track. I already mentioned Vets of Kin in previous posts and I have to say I’m quite happy discovering more from them. The upcoming album will be released as a collaboration between Civil Mics and Domination Recordings and this is unfortunately the only info I have for the moment. But you can be sure that as soon as I know more I will share the goodness. 360, apart from the beautiful production, is also a great exhibition of Vets of Kin’s members talent in terms of delivery and lyrics and had my head nodding from the very first notes till the end. Of course I’m impatient to hear more tracks from the guys but until then I will listen to this one regularly and I encourage you to do the same!
You can now listen to 360 and discover Vets of Kin universe, in case you were not familiar with them. Enjoy and spread the word!
Because I am curious by nature, I did a little research about Vets of Kin, which is like a super group gathering many of Orlando (aka O-Zone)’s best MCs, including Civil Mics members MyGrane McNastee, Unique Assassin, Shinobi Stalin & Word Chemist. Most of their music sounds quite heavy and I can’t really get the image of them being some kind of superheroes or soldiers fighting for the cause of hip-hop out of my head. I will share a video with you, which I found while doing my research on YouTube. It kind of sums up the ‘martial’ spirit I just mentioned and is entitled Ceremony. Enjoy!
If you are as curious as I am, you can find out more and listen to some goodness on their MySpace
