D-Maub comes out swinging with “Get Loose” and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The track brings so much energy and his lyrics match the track perfectly down to the break down and slow flow for about eight bars. This was a wonderful change of pace. I definitely got loose on this one, or at least I tried. You may laugh at my dance moves, but this song is no laughing matter. I rarely want to dance when I listen to songs –I try to stick to head-nodding- but this one was too krunk.
The Follow Up, as a whole, is a pleasure to listen to. D-Maub brings it lyrically from start to finish. Since I’m not familiar with his past work, I was left guessing which emcee on the track was actually him at some points, though. “I’m a Slave” is another banger. The fast rapping (aka twisting) put me at a crossroads though. As a lyricist, I acknowledge that repeating the same thing makes the style much easier. This takes away from the actual skill level required (aka fun/challenge/whatever you want to call it) to writing rhymes like this. But from a listener’s prospective I have to admit that it was actually a positive. It’s still pleasing to the ear and for those who struggle to understand the lyrics; it’s actually easier to understand what’s being said. Considering we’re spreading the Gospel, that’s a huge plus. So, I give this variation of twisting two thumbs up. Besides, the only thing that separates rap from speaking is the entertaining/intriguing way we say things. I guess the listener is always right.
With all of that being said, this EP is definitely worth the purchase…and thensome (I just checked the price). His flow is consistent and catchy. His content is on point. I’m eager to here more from D-Maub in the future. But, everybody’s a critic. I’m just the one who wrote the review. Peace and much love…
