Pt. 1 Whoa... ♾
We missed detecting this one early on somehow. 😕
Regardless, glad to come across this cat. @joynerlucas is officially our favorite new generation emcee. He's the perfect cross-breed in our opinion, but on some new ish. Honestly he's the type i wouldn't mind my child listening to which says alot. 😫
Other emcees are predictable and truth be told even those with lyrical skills are a dime a dozen these days. If we are going to support future artist, they have to have some self respect for themselves and their culture and if they don't, their are plenty of societies most popular culture vulture music sites that will eat it up supporting all of black cultures most vulgar only to repackage and ostracized later after mimicking.. but i digress.
His conceptual prowess is different & compelling, drawing you in with each line. Joyner Lucas is an intellectual & gifted in the art of word play. ☻
I dont know his story yet, but he feels authentic & his lines have meaning. There's a message, yet it's dope. Go figure music industry, as if that point wasn't already proven by ATCQ, Kendrick and so many others... i digress.
On some earlier tracks, he had a 90s lyricist type flow, on others, more dramatic and reflective, then there was there was the 2015 BET Cypher. That alone earned a career type bench mark for the dexterity, delivery & subject matter (that shxt was dope). But all of that pales in comparison to his evolution in sound & understanding of visuals that pierce ones heart. ☻
To say we are captivated is an understatement.... just start off with the video "Ross Capicchioni" after watching this and see if the journey takes you further. ☻
We feel a Kanye collabo coming & predict Joyner Lucas to be one of the hottest artist of 2018. ☝️🏾
Time will tell, if we are right. Do ya homework & decide for yourself. ✊🏾
...and that's #thebrooklynword 👊🏾
