GENRE | BEATS FROM THE BEAN
VERDICT | INTELLECT THAT BANGS
LABEL | BRICK RECORDS
RELEASE | 1.22.13
Moe Pope’s upcoming album Let The Right Ones In is anything but bland. The Boston native provides a wide range of topics that he attacks with witty bars and beats that would make any electronic music fan jump for joy.
He covers the struggles that he faces everyday without glorifying them;
rather, he paints a picture that clearly portrays his daily battles while still maintaining the hip-hop bravado essential to any dope MC.
The lyrical content alone is inspiring. For those who like straight flowing, Pope has a voice as soft as Q-tips with messages that go far beyond popping bottles and rocking ice. It is refreshing to finally hear an album with grade-A production and lyrical heat to match. Pope walks a thin line between introspective spirituality and self-glorifying machismo that has created an album fit for a yoga studio or a hoopty full of your boys just cruising.
The album also features contributing artists such as Reks, Blacastan, and Tan Vampires, who undoubtedly add to the multidimensional sound. With electronic beats that hit with full force and lyrics that simply refuse to be categorized or marginalized,
Moe Pope makes the Bean proud.
