Tom Gist and Saintville deliver a new 5 track EP for fans. As far as the bars go, Tom Gist is, and always has been, fantastic. He is wise beyond his years and spits like a true veteran, even early in his career. He really needs praise for how good of an MC he is. He is complemented nicely by the other members of Saintville as well. The beats on this album are pretty standard. I wouldn’t say there is anything that really stands out, but at the same time, there is nothing whack either. While EPs have been the method of delivery for a bit now, I’d much rather see a full length, studio produced album from Tom Gist. That is what the fans need. That aside, this was a decent job by all parties involved.

Tom Gist teams up with Penz to give us a quick 5 track EP. We haven’t heard much from Tom Gist lately, but I can’t tell you how hyped we are to hear from him. He is incredibly underrated and wish he would put out more music on a wider scale that is easier to find. On the mic, Tom Gist is magic. When you stop and really listen to what he is saying, it’s easy to see how great and introspective he can really be. Penz is pretty dope as well, don’t get it twisted. Tom Gist is just next level though. The beats on this album are about average. I’d like to hear Tom Gist over some Heatmakerz type tracks but we will get anything we can at this point. 5 quick tracks for fans to appreciate here and we hope there is a lot more to come!

Tom Gist and A-Clay team up to give us a new quick 7 track project. This one almost sounds more like a demo tape than a studio album. As far as the bars go, Tom Gist is on top of his game. His bars are really dope and he is such an underrated talent. A-Clay doesn’t quite hold a torch to Tom Gist but he holds his own. The beats on here weren’t the best, but they weren’t the worst either. I think Tom Gist would really benefit from a full length studio album with quality producers. Get that man over top of some Heatmakerz beats and let him bear his soul.

2 Diplomat legends link up for a very quick 6 track EP. This one is almost over before you know it which is a shame. A-Mafia comes out and spits his relentless street bars. He really shines with his rhymes as he almost never seems to run out of rhyming phrases. Tom Gist does a great job on the mic as well with his lessons of real life, pain, and struggle. You can always feel his rhymes in your soul. I just wish he would put out more readily available music. At least a freestyle tape or something. The beats on here are pretty average. You’re not really going to get anything that sounds like the classic Diplomat/Heatmakerz sound, but the beats are still decent. Overall, they did a good job on here, I just wish the project was longer.
