In a day that was packed full of releases for Detroit hip hop & beyond – without a doubt one release has garnered the majority of the spotlight. A front to back adventure through the lyrical tendencies of Royce Da 5’9″ Book Of Ryan is a deeply personal journey that gives you a glimpse into the life of Ryan Montgomery. A developed, well oiled machine that packs a career into twenty one tracks full of bars, lyrical life flashbacks, & seamless delivery. Book Of Ryan is a defining album full of immense feeling that helps you visualize the stories it tells. Songs like Cocaine, Power, & Amazing are prime examples of Royce diving deep into his personal life with raw & vivid imagery crafted into articulated stories. It doesn’t stop with those three songs either, the whole album carries along fragments & glances into his life. Even when he isn’t the one tangling words together effortlessly others have tagged along to shine as lyrical or singing companion. A feature list containing Eminem, J Cole, Melanie Rutherford, Ashley Sorrel, King Green, Pusha T & Logic amongst others lend some of the best collaborations of the year & help meld Book Of Ryan rather than drag it down. I’m about five listens in at the time of finishing this brief synapse of what I might end up the calling album of the year but I can’t stop listening. Now the year is early & in respect of all other artists we do still have seven months to go. Regardless of what else drops this year though Royce Da 5’9″ has certainly cemented a solid contender in his latest full length effort. Best of all this man happens to be from one of the greatest rap cities in the world – Detroit! Listen, stream, buy, share, but most of all enjoy. – 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.
