ALBUM

Enter Portraits, A Definitive Album From Chris Orrick.

Published

on

Chris Orrick isn’t afraid to tell you everything he hates, yet the opening verse of Portraits paints an artist who seems to be questioning his position in this world of creators he enters. Not for this era he laments before going on his hate rant & I’d venture to go to bat with that argument in an industry consumed by simple melodies plus a lack of lyrical depth. I would also dare to say I don’t buy that – this year has been a treat for hip hop listeners & Portraits provides a competitive slice of lyricist pie. In fact as I listened to Chris Orrick’s advice & let the music play on I knew this ex-factory worker from Michigan whose been at the lyrical helm for the last half-decade was delivering a definitive album. Formally RED PILL, Chris ditches his old entity & delivers an honest, real life rap, & social commentary infused lyrical portrait of who he is as an artist. Piano pattered productions from a powerful team of producers including Nolan the Ninja, L’Orange, Exile, Apollo Brown, and Onra blend effortlessly into each other & demonstrate the perfect backdrop for Portraits. The element of consistency record to record is one of my largest compliments for PortraitsChris Orrick has seemingly mastered the art of having a sound that defines him. He successfully delivers an album that plays like one enormously long song even on shuffle yet in a rare way each song still carries it weight solo. The first three entree’s of Portraits provide a powerful opening punch & as you move forward it just builds & builds. Fashawn & Verbal Kent arrive as the only two guest appearances both to shine with fantastic verses. All in all Portraits is well worth the listen, & damn near one of the best projects I’ve heard this year.( Surely in my top ten.) If I were to pick three standouts “Design Flaw“, “Bottom Feeders feat. Fashawn“, & “Mom” would top my list with extra props to Nolan The Ninja on “Mom” for having supplied easily one of my favorite instrumentals of the year. Preview “Portraits” below and remember if your down with the sounds to share, stream, or buy the album today to help show your support for one of Mello Music Group’s finest artists & latest offerings. – COMMi$$ION

Bang Belushi “Rudy” Album

Published

on

Detroit Veteran Bang Belushi is back with Rudy, his 2nd installment on the Middle Finger Music imprint. We once again see Bang teaming up with MFM’s man behind the music, super producer Foul mouth. The album begins with Bang reminding himself of his legend status and deciding that it’s time to show people what transformed Rudy into Bang Belushi. The title track starts off with a quick verse previewing the menu of what to be expected from this 16-course meal. Rudy is littered with Bang detailing his extracurricular activities growing up on the brazen streets of Detroit ranging from high grade cannabis, promiscuous women, running from police, and of course excessive amounts of Popov. Bang teams up
with fellow MFM comrades as well as other notable emcees each equally pushing their own unique vision providing natural progression between tracks. Rudy highlights Bang and Foul mouth’s undeniable chemistry. The texture and soundscape of the record almost makes it sound as if Bang and Foul mouth
are speaking back and forth at times. Effortless. On “Feeling like Biggie”, Bang skates over a smooth piano sample sketching up stories about lessons learned in his earlier days in Detroit leading up to the transformation of Bang Belushi…“When I was comin’ up Big was my idol / Ready to Die everyday struggle my bible.” On the album’s outro, we hear a side of Bang we are not as accustomed to. He
speaks from the heart about his children and lost loved ones. “For my youngest little Ryan, Daddy love you / you my twin I feel the love when I hug you…….Through my kids I finally see a better me / left the
hoes alone…” Allow yourself to view Bang Belushi’s life through his musical point of view. Rudy is artistic. Rudy is colorful. Rudy is raw. Rudy is Bang Belushi, and Bang Belushi is a legend.
