Review - C-Rayz Walz - Ravipops

C-RAYZ WALZ: Ravipops (The Essence)

Rapping since age five in Hip-Hop Mesopotamia (the South Bronx), becoming an undie-hop legend on the battle circuit and pushing CDs guerilla style, C-Rayz Walz practically bleeds Hip-Hop. Referencing Super Lover Cee And Casanova Rud, spitting funny-yet-poignant punch lines (“I don’t jerk off no more/ I came empty-handed!”), waxing poetic about the days “before niggas learned gun-fu,” and dispatching a distinct flow that eschews overcomplicated head-alienating word labyrinths, Walz remains both undeniably true-school and progressive at every move. “Protect My Family” is as heart-on-sleeve as the title implies, with Walz buying groceries, detailing the disintegration of his misogynist attitudes, and vividly comparing his daughter’s cry to a thunderstorm. Fun, and equally as compelling, is the space disco of “The Lineup,” a posse cut featuring Wordsworth, J-Treds, Thirstin Howl III, Vast Aire, Breezly Brewin and MF Doom “turning study hall into a bloody brawl.” Still hungry, still battling and still enough skills to “drown you with a cup of water,” C-Rayz, swords blazing, lives up to his rhyme-slayer rep.

This is a great album. I watched this guy spit on the mic when I was in New York and he's come a long ways.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
