Underneath the colourful exterior though is an artist with a conscious approach to rap and something heartfelt to talk about, and that’s what you begin to appreciate when you let the track play and you really, fully listen.
Occasionally you can get either an incredibly impressive backing track or an incredibly captivating leading vocalist – rarely do you get the pleasure of experiencing both at once. In this case, the music and the performances – the lyricism, the flow, the tone – everything is well above par.

naldooo puts a whole lot of modern life into this album – the result is something surprisingly eclectic, endlessly melodic & consistently impressive. Rather than allowing himself to be pigeonholed, naldooo takes full advantage of the album format, introducing his varied influences from the offset.

Fusing a soulful and rather vintage melody-line with an ambient, lightly uplifting beat, and a classic rap flow that offers subtle yet energizing confidence – I Gotcha has the makings of a hit that could easily stand the test of time.
Blaze by Joe Gang is a powerful, beautiful, and deep cutting endeavor into a level of emotion seldom discussed in the rap and hip hop genres. The title itself a poignant reference to both smoking and the attitude of complete emotional withdrawal.
