"Born Alone"
Hip Hop

No child's play here, put your game face on for this
Masterfully orchestrated from start to finish

Seriously satisfying all the way through 

If your favorite rapper is Drake or anyone who makes full songs about badonkadonks very regularly, you'll need a band-aid and some new socks after digesting this powerful and utterly invigorating album. To cut a long story short - it will blow your socks off and knock you out cold.

Staying well clear of the pop antiques and mass appeal tactics that are rampant in a lot of today's hip hop, Six9's new album is everything the pioneers of hip hop envisioned and continue to envision, and then some. This isn't one of those albums you throw on when the lights are low and you're hanging with the old lady, unless of course your old lady is an original gangster, (or a really hefty, hardcore dyke - no offense meant, the heart wants what the heart wants - no one's judging you here), it's one of those you crank up to the max when it's go time. It's raw, hardcore, motivational, inspirational and highly energising. It's one of those records that'll keep you up all night hoping Spotify will recommend more of, but sadly you won't find anything like it. With 12 tracks packed with everything hip hop has been missing for decades lyrically, stylistically and sonically, it will blow you away and have you on your knees begging for more. But don't take anyone's word for it, skip over to "Child's Play", track 10 to get a raw taste of what you are in for before settling down to listen to the full mixtape. Dope rhymes, original lyrics, themes with substance, that deeply satisfying bass that is missing in a lot of the hip hop vocals on hip hop records today - reminiscent of artists like the Notorious B.I.G, that forceful delivery that'll get your blood pumping, that deeply satisfying rush that comes with the truth and nothing but the truth, and ultimately, that liberating feel you get when you're sure you've discovered the best of the best - that's what you get. It's one of those mixtapes that's so good you'll hesitate to share it with just anybody.
