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

Clear Soul Sources Deliver Farewell Album " Forceswithyou".

With “STILL”, well, STILL in rotation. Last years stellar album had hardly any time to age when news broke that a brand new Clear Soul Forces album was once again on its way. The Detroit based hip-hop super group has cemented their status across a storied catalog worthy of deep listening. So when “Forceswithyou” was announced, incredible album artwork and all, needless to say many fans were hyped.

However, that anticipation for new music from Clear Soul Forces was soon bittersweet. The group collectively announced that they would be going their separate ways and that “Forceswithyou” would be their final album as a group. An announcement that took many fans by surprise! However, as they exit, leaving us all with ten more records of their signature sounds, we are left with a respectable departure, & a shed of hope that one day they shall return for more. Not that they need to

Separately, where-ever their paths may lead may they find their greatest success and happiness, let’s be thankful for the music Clear Soul Forces have gifted over the years, and enjoy a fitting 313 day release “Forceswithyou“.
