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.
In prior posts I’ve featured songs from the lllllSOUND lllllTherapy Movement’s Best of Vol. I CD mixed by Dee Jay Vamp. The music on the CD covers the scope of the Mobile Showcase’s focal points from an auditory perspective: Emcees, Singers, Poets & Vinyl Dee Jays. It basically takes a snippet of what you could expect to hear any given night at the event. Several songs were compiled to issue a Vol. II, but it never came into fruition.
For this week, I selected two tracks-There You Go by Iceman, & Massive by Lord Sith & Knawledge. That’s three different Emcees-Iceman, Sith & Knawledge, 2 of which are also producers-Iceman & Knawledge, and 1 Dee Jay to mix it-Vamp. Knawledge and Sith1Emcee@gmail.com hail from Southern California. Iceman is a 615 Native, Music City Emcee (Nashville, TN). His cut speaks to the cats grinding, the snow way, keeping it street.
Knawledge and Sith build on the death of Hip Hop music and the difference between what’s on the radio, and what’s on the streets. Point is, both joints touch the realness of those that hold this Hip Hop Culture in high regard, be ye Ski Hustler or True School B-Boy B-Girl…let me know if y’all feeling them.
