For those who have been with myself and Carrick from the beginning of time (Team MCC), team reviews will be something familiar to you. We’re bringing back the feature to help support all the independent artist out there, as well as assisting the music lovers in discovering new talent. We’ll give you a quick rundown on what we collectively think about a project to let you know if it’s worth checking out, or not worth your time.
For our 2nd installment, we’re reviewing a new face to our site, Syracuse rapper ERthefuture. See what we collectively thought about his new release “Year of the Steez”.
Fav track: “City of Dogs”
Polished, pleasant, and well rounded- ERthefuture’s “Year of the Steez” provides an uplifting sound with clever lyrics that really flow. I really dig the samples pulled in this project and it’ll have you nodding along. This project taps into multiple styles of rap and the result is something for everyone.
Fav Track: “U”
ERthefuture is good to the ears because he sounds “familiar”. He reminds me a lot of early Big Sean, Drake & Mac Miller. I’m not hating, I’ve just heard this before. His context is nice tho ’cause I feel what he’s saying. The one factor that really put me down though was the mixing. This record’s sound quality was not on point.
Fav Tracks: “Breakadawn” & “Friday”
This project is so chill and I really enjoyed listening to it! The beats were nice and it’s very summer vibes over all, which is perfect for this weather to just go and bump in your car driving around. I’m definitely going to be keeping my eye out for more music from ERthefuture!
Favorite Track: “Rob The Bank”
This project honestly was such a good one! It left me inspired, motivated, and just ready to take on the world. Overall, there are so many songs that go hard on “Year of the Steez”.
Favorite Tracks: “The Show”, “City Of Dogs” and “Swish”
I was digging the balance of old and new school Hip Hop on “Year of the Steez”. I can see myself listening to over half of these tracks repeatedly. A few tracks seemed to have needed a better mix but overall, ER put forth a decent album here.
