This has held a spot in my inbox for a bit now. I’ve been meaning to get to a post after a complete listens, but time has been sparse. In any regard, I have sampled a couple of the cuts, and they’re some of the best I’ve heard in a while. I’ve known about SoulChef for a little over a year — and you Rhode Islander’s should, too, as one of our (RI’s) premiere emcees, Need Not Worry, will be doing an EP with the guy; supposedly in the works now.
K.Wiz, though, I hadn’t heard of until I received this email. He has a similar flow and vocal tone to that of AZ, at least in my opinion, and I’m really looking forward to getting a couple of free minutes on the computer at home to finally get this on my iTunes.

I feel like I sold this project short yesterday when I made this post. Although I said it was some of the best work I’ve heard in a while, I was in a rush and I didn’t really include any details behind the concept of the EP, which happens to be a really fresh one. It’s a dedication of sorts to all of the artists seen on the artwork — Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Selena, and David Ruffin. SoulChef uses samples from the aforementioned artists in each of his productions, giving the EP a rather unique (<—geek-boy AZ reference) and genuine feel. It’s definitely worth your time. I’m listening now. At work. (Don’t tell anybody.)
