KUNIVA – THE PEOPLE’S PLAYLIST

Kuniva from D-12 drops a brand new project that is pretty sizable at 18 tracks. On this project, he really tried to press for a traditional sounding studio album and it came out pretty good overall. He has a lot of great songs that delve into a lot of different topics and have a lot of feeling to them. Proof’s passing is definitely a key topic on a few tracks on here and it is very apparent that it will always affect D-12 to the core. It really gives you a sense of what a tragic loss it was to lose Proof. Kuniva does a fantastic job at expressing all the emotions surrounding that. He gets features from a ton of artists including Swifty McVay, Jon Connor, Mr. Porter, and more. He even gets some singers like Melanie Rutherford and Mrk SX to lend their talents to hooks. The production on here is slightly above average. There are some really good beats on here and at times, I almost feel like he was pushing for some singles on these songs. There is a lot of growth and maturity on this album. Anyone interested in D-12 and their journey in this industry should definitely check out this album.

KUNIVA – ALPHA UNDERDOG

D-12 member Kuniva delivers a brand new album with no features at all. He didn’t even need anyone with the way he is rhyming on here. The one thing that is very apparent is this MC is talented and he knows how to spit complete realness. A lot of his bars are very relatable. That is one of the things that makes a great rapper when you can understand and relate to their rhymes. They bring those emotions out of you. You can feel his hunger and drive throughout his bars. The beats on here are pretty decent as well. There are few that have a little more of a jazzy feel, but overall, the project is very cohesive. Fans of real bars will definitely appreciate this one. Kuniva is definitely repping the D well.

KUNIVA & SWIFTY MCVAY – MY BROTHER’S KEEPER

2 members of D-12 give us a pretty strong offering. Even though it is only 7 tracks, the strength and the heart can be felt throughout this project. I think D-12 has always had heart and that is why it has always been painful since Proof died. The tear that went through that group can never be undone and we continue to experience it in their music. Although some of the group members have always been better lyrically, they haven’t always had the chance to shine until more recent times. Here are 2 of the members as a perfect example that D-12 members can spit. The lyrical ability displayed on this project is very good from both MC’s. They display strong flows and incredible wordplay throughout. One of the highlights was the first song “Gate Open” as both MC’s ferociously tear into it with unstoppable bars. The production throughout this project is pretty decent overall. I think they definitely have a strong Detroit sound and at times, really try to create just good music that people who enjoy any genre of music would like. All in all, they are keeping the torch lit for not only D-12, but also all of Detroit.

KUNIVA – THE BANDO THEORY

Kuniva of D-12 drops off a brand new album and this one is better than you expect. As far as his rhymes, I think Kuniva might be a little bit underrated. He doesn’t get the credit that he should. He definitely puts together some great bars and some clever wordplay. It’s no surprise that he came from underneath of Eminem’s umbrella because you can see the influence. The standout component of this project is definitely the production. The beats on here are really slamming. There are hard drums littered all throughout the songs. There were maybe 2 songs which I didn’t really care for, but other than that, you definitely get some hard-hitting Detroit beats with some clever wordplay on here. Any fans of Eminem or D-12 will definitely be feeling this release.

KUNIVA – A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE VOL. 2

D-12’s Kuniva drops off a mixtape and it leaves much to be desired. From hearing him on previous D-12 albums and features, I was hoping for a lot more. I was ready to almost sacrifice the production content not being too good if the lyrics would take the place but I was sadly let down on both sides. He just doesn’t seem to bring much at all lyrically. He does sort of tell a story throughout this offering and the themes are somewhat consistent, but the lyrically complexity is just not there. I do give him points for being so honest though. That part I did feel throughout the project. The beats are average at best with nothing to really take away and remember. Unless you are a huge D-12 fan or a huge Detroit rap fan, I would pass on this one.
