Redrum – “The Lucifer Effect” (Album Review)

This is the full-length debut from Orlando hip hop duo Redrum. Consisting of emcees Red Eye & Ranks, the pair have made some noise in the underground throughout the past few years off the strength of a couple singles & are now taking listeners through The Lucifer Effect before 2020 ends.

After the intro, the first song “Adjustment Bureau” is essentially Redrum shit-talking over an spooky instrumental while the track “On Fire” talks about how no one can defeat them over an intimidating beat. The song “Run Come” with Kali Ranks finds the trio talking about being strapped over a dusty boom bap instrumental & after the “That New Shit” skit, the track “New Thangs” with Heist-n-Flow sees the 3 talking about how everyone’s in the same lane over a climatic beat.

The song “Cold Blooded” talks about how it is in the streets over a solemn instrumental while the penultimate track “Palo Mayombe” advises listeners not to take the words they speak lightly over some weepy strings. The closer “Devil Lurks” talks about being weary where you walk over some chipmunked-vocals, but then the hidden cut “Carnival” flexes their lyrical prowesses over a demonic boom bap beat.

I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve heard on The Lucifer Effect & it has me excited to see where Redrum will take things in the future. Couple of the features were just alright, but the duo bounce off each other very well & the grimy production suits them like a glove.

Score: 7/10

Reginae Carter Celebrates 22nd Birthday with Throwback Party

Reginae Carter took it back to the ’99 and the 2000 while celebrating her birthday.

Lil Wayne’s daughter went all out for her 22nd birthday bash in Atlanta on Sunday (Nov. 29). The lavish party, hosted by her on-again boyfriend YFN Lucci, featured a throwback theme that paid homage to late ’90s/early 2000s hip-hop, the era in which she grew up.

For the invites, Reginae recreated the artwork for album covers including Foxy Brown’s Broken Silence and Eve’s Scorpion, as well as the Hot BoysGuerrilla Warfare and her dad’s own debut Tha Block Is Hot.

Mannie Fresh provided the throwback soundtrack and Reginae’s father entertained the crowd with old and new hits as his daughter sang along to every word. 2 Chainz serenaded the birthday girl, while Juvenile reunited with Weezy to perform their Hot Boys collaboration “We on Fire.”

At one point in the evening, Wayne presented his daughter with a diamond-covered Cartier watch. “Fourteen, 15, I had this beautiful princess right here,” he told the mostly maskless crowd. “She taught me how to be a man and everything about life. This is the motherfu**in’ most ultimate blessing in the world, Reginae Carter.”

Guests included Reginae’s mother Toya, as well as Tiny, Zonnique, and Kandi Burruss, who dressed for the occasion in a Lil’ Kim-inspired outfit.

While reflecting on the big night, Reginae thanked Lucci. “Last night was mad real !! Thanks to my boyfriend for throwing me this amazing party !” she wrote. “Thanks to my parents for the juvenile and Mannie connect (legendary ) and I wanna thank everybody who came and partied with me ! Y’all some real ones.”

Apokalips The Archangel – “1137Q” (Album Review)

Apokalips The Archangel releases his new 19 track album titled “1137Q” after his Queens zip code. Produced by his label partner Seasra23.The album begins with an introduction highlighting the Jackson Heights Queens and its rich Latin cultural atmosphere.  I was able to consume this album while driving through the city, it gives me a Nastradamus vibe with golden age content.

Track 1 was a rebellious sounding record with raw gritty vibes  ,the content was completely underground revolutionary you can hear the distress in the artist voice as the album advances. Track 2 “Soul Caliber” had an infectious sample as the hook carried the song through. Apokalips came with a lyrical witty verse I digged his stylistic approach & sound resonance.

“Dangerous Mind” was a stand out track feat Godfather Pt 3. & Dj Modesty The flow kept an red laser eye smooth every verse fell into each other. The Dj scratches is a lost element in todays hiphop and leaving the door open to highlight the Dj was magical.

“Underground” started with a classic sample introduction just to end up creating a classic production as Apokilips glide over this instrumental to make my favorite song on the album thus far. You can hear the Queens influence all over his flow sounding like all the greats we know and love. If I had to compare to any new upcoming artist I would say Dave east and remembrance of Big L.

Amigos feat Lex and Kesper, The 1st thing I noticed was the production quality and vibe of the track. I can imagine a integration music video of some sort but in your face visuals would bring this to life. “Ghetto Souveuniers” feat the legendary artist Godfather Pt 3 for another collaboration. This time the song was more more so conceptual  and highlighting bars and intellectual thought. Queens tribute by letting it be known they side with Ether over Jay Z catalog anyday.

“Agression” Featuring Supreme Sniper and Lex with scratches from Dj Glibstylez. They mixed in all the legends in a hook sampling artist from Nas to Method man. The impact factor from a Hiphop perspective this record is heavy bar song like Most of the songs from these collaborations. “Stay Strong” Feat D-Rex & Illy Da Wize gave me a immortal technique Necro type vibe. The deep raspy tone carries over with a ghastly push.

“Never Count me out” is a reflective record full of introspection. The song structure is signature at this point as we know what to expect. now that im towards the end of the album I stay true to my 1st statement of this album reminding me of Queens Legends LP “Nastradamus”. Its only right you have a Queens legend in God Father Pt 3 feat and stamp it for approval. For more music by Apokalips The Arch Angel follow him on social media and Spotify.
