Reviews – II Tone – New Direction-My World Overcometh
II Tone is back with a brand new solo album in 2017! Black Rain Entertainment and II Tone have been puttin’ it down for years, and always represents Memphis Tennessee to the fullest! This album is crunk as fuck to start off with! The production is done by different producers including Jack Daniels, DJ Cree and St. Kittz but the majority of this dope production was done by Cuttoffurmind! It captures that classic M-Town Get-Buck sound, so if you are a fan of dope Memphis rap then this is a must!
One of the songs I cant stop bumpin’ is Water Off featuring Mac Montese and T-Rock because it is about how people change when you quit doing shit for them. Basically goin’ in on them snakes that lay around waiting for your downfall! Another one I’m feeling is Different because he opens up about alot on here including having Vitiligo which is the same condition that Krizz Kalico of Strange Music has. The album is packed full of heat, including the fire track Take A Puff featuring Mr. 4Twenty and Mac Montese, this one is a real smoker’s anthem!
I’m feeling at least 90% of this album, even the couple songs I’m not into are bumpin’, but then again I’ve never known II Tone or Black Rain to put out anything wack. He even has Lord Infamous(RIP) on here whom was a huge part of Black Rain Entertainment.I love the beats, the dope rhymes, but also the quality. This is the first II-Tone solo I’ve heard in a minute and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is into hard street shit. Definitely a breathe of fresh air for the new year!
