This was a fantastic EP from 2 underrated talents in the rap game. Locksmith is an incredible lyricist that is criminally slept on. He can construct some supreme bars and chances are you probably haven’t heard of him. He gives an introspective look at his life and his thought process on this short offering. Apollo Brown’s name should speak for itself if you are familiar with his work. He brings vintage and soulful boom bap beats with fantastic samples to back up any quality MC out there. It only made sense for these 2 to make a project together. The only real beef I have with this project is that it wasn’t long enough. I wanted to hear more from them. A full length album would have been great. Nonetheless, they did a fantastic job. The highlight is probably the song “Litmus” where Locksmith shows you why he is so great at crafting rhymes. Although this project was released among the likes of Jay-Z and Nas with their albums, don’t let this one slip through the cracks and get lost in the shuffle. You need to hear this.
OVERALL RATING: 4 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
