Wax Lyrical is defined by TTEOAN as: music created in an unreserved and highly prolific way that is pressed on vinyl, or that uses a vinyl aesthetic. For a more elaborate description of the term Wax Lyrical, check out prior posts: Vol. I, Vol. I.a, Vol. II & the Special Edition.
Alright, so I got beats from Brother Mal, Litespeed, and of course Sith1Emcee@gmail.com. I’ve been putting those artist’s stuff up, and I’ve got more on deck. However, instead of going that route this week, I decided to do a...what do the millennials call it: ‘throwback’. During the winter of 2010-2011, lllllSOUND lllllTHERAPY had a few nice acts that would come through and do their staple tunes that the audience and staff knew. I decided to put together a compilation of their works and use it for promotional purposes. All the elements were portrayed: Emcees, Singers & Poets (ESP).
You had to be a ‘standout’ artist in order to be on the CD (Wax Lyrical). The CD has over 20 songs from over 15 acts. Some artists have a couple songs on the CD, others are interludes (as there was supposed to be a Vol II in the works, but it never came into fruition due to the busy aspect of weekly weekend shows around the mid-South). lllllSOUND lllllTHERAPY veteran Ecmee-Smoke is who’s featured this week. His song Mira, is probably one of my all-time favorite songs period, by any artist-known or unknown, and of any genre. I follow it up with another single of his: SNK (Saturday Night Krush), which is mixed by Dee Jay Vamp-resident lllllSOUND lllllTHERAPY Dee Jay & South Bronx Native). Enjoy the cuts and let me know what you think.
Any artists that would like to have their songs featured on Wax Lyrical, please submit your email in the comments, or hit me directly at AhmoredTieghur@gmail.com. Peace.
