“The Rise Of Louis Stylez”, standout tracks, include “Hit Record,” “Flashy (feat.Milli Wonka),” “I Can’t Even Hate,” “Personal Philosophy” and “Lay You Down (feat. Zo_Quanny).”
Louis Stylez is in the class of inspired and inspirational rappers. Hip-Hop is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be motivational, insightful. It’s supposed to make a statement. It’s supposed to “be” something that lifts the people through its lyrical and musical content. Stylez’s Hip-Hop does just that.
Just listen to “Hit Record.” Stylez’s spitting during the verses is on-pitch, on-point with the perfect emotion given to it and the right timing, which some rappers struggle with. It has enough energy to be danceable and sexual, but never overpowering. The musical elements are sparse and clean, with a driving synth line, constantly accompanying Stylez’s flow.
I have listened to rap for over 20 years, and have heard the cycles it has gone through, becoming annoyed with each and every one. From the introduction of the chorus, to everybody wanting to be a gangsta, up to the modern-day cliché of rims, wood grain, and being a pimp.
The good thing about these cycles is that, in each and every one, some rappers refuse to fall victim to the clichés releasing an album that is appreciated that much more, because it truly seeks to explore new niches, determined not to be mediocre and to not drown in the fad of the day. “The Rise Of Louis Stylez,” is one of these albums.
The lyrical content and flow is unique and thought provoking, at times extremely explicit. The beats are tight enough to make you nod your head, but not overpowering enough to distract you from the rhymes.
Overall, “The Rise Of Louis Stylez,” is an unpretentiously cool album from an upcoming hiphop artist. On it Louis Stylez has reached a new level. The music, samples and even poetry on this body of work, all help to showcase his talents.
The whole album is very listenable and superb value whether you’re already a fan or are just finding out about him for the first time.
