"When we hear music, we tend to focus on the melody's context, but strip the beats and focus on the lyrical concepts, sending messages embedded in the content of words…." - Ekho
Music ['myoo-zik] - The Rhythmic Expression of Emotion, Artistically, through Sound.
Many present day listeners are misguided in the direction of measuring the talent of MCs by means outside of their craft. These young minds tend to forget the true units of measurement that makes a great MC. The ability of an MC to craft words together around an idea, in such a fashion that imagery is vividly displayed in the minds, and emotion is richly evoked in the hearts of the listeners is a gift unparalleled.
The entities of lyricism and conceptualism are separately compelling, although the cooperation of the pair is undeniable. Here we give you that coalition in this 18-track, two year project from the bottom of our hearts. We had a lot of fun with the making of this project. We hope to positively influence each and every listener in some form or fashion, minute or massive. If only one of you is positively effected by our music and efforts, we will be satisfied. Thank you for lending us your ears, as well as your time and insight, which shall remain greatly appreciated. Peace and much love, L.
