Our New Album “The New World” Earns Rave Review
We are thrilled that prominent hip hop blog UndergroundHipHopBlog gave our new album “The New World” a fantastic 8/10 rating in their latest review!
Working with the talented up-and-coming rapper Stoney Kev, we aimed to create a powerful project that provided commentary on real issues while offering hope.
Review author Mr. Fantastic had glowing remarks about Stoney Kev’s conscious wordplay and storytelling, saying: “Using his crafty lyrical ability to commentate on various world events, Stoney Kev shows he can be conscious hip hop’s next leader.” Songs like “Quarantine” and “This Too Shall Pass” were highlighted for capturing the frustration and optimism around current events.
The review also applauded my production work, stating: “Gem en Eye creates a dynamic soundtrack to complement Stoney Kev’s illusive storytelling…From the electro-soul sampled “What’s the Worth?” to the vibrant boom-bap sound of “Flatline”, there is so much Gem displays in this 36-minute offering.”
In conclusion, the reviewer says: “Having the ability to contribute powerful social commentary on enduring world issues is a special skill and early in his career, Stoney Kev already sounds like a veteran in this role. Additionally, Gem en Eye’s talent as a producer is seen at full throttle.”
We are grateful for such an amazing review during the album’s early release. We aimed to create timely commentary mixed with great music – and it’s rewarding to see that shine through for listeners and critics alike. Moving forward, Stoney Kev and I hope to continue collaborating and pushing conscious hip hop to new heights.
