With this album, CompositionC steps into a larger stage, donning the mantle of an artist who not only mesmerizes with his razor-sharp lyricism but also delves fearlessly into the depths of vulnerability, weaving a narrative that resonates with the struggles and resilience of the modern world. From the very first track to the last, ‘The We’reld’s Changing’ is an opus that doesn’t just captivate the ears but also touches the soul. It is evident that CompositionC has meticulously crafted each verse and chorus, channeling his own experiences of adversity and endurance into a symphony that echoes the heartbeat of humanity. What’s truly remarkable is his ability to retain the very essence of his complex rap mechanics while artfully infusing layers of emotional depth into his storytelling, elevating the entire experience to a new echelon of musical expression.
The album’s nine tracks serve as a testament to CompositionC’s prowess as an agile wordsmith. Tracks like ‘Limitless’ and ‘Even Titans Fall’ showcase his impeccable flow and versatile delivery, leaving an indelible imprint of his artistry. However, it is in moments of poignant vulnerability, as heard in ‘Times Are Breaking Me (Prayer)’ and ‘Life Gets Better Someday,’ that CompositionC reveals a profound sense of introspection, laying bare his struggles and aspirations with a poignant sincerity that lingers long after the last note fades.
Tracks like “2 Grams,” “Spark In The Rain,” “Breathe,” and “Trying To Stay Positive,” serve as not only testaments to his resilience but also anthems for all those who have weathered the tempestuous storms of life.

His meticulous approach to crafting each beat, often drawing from a blend of samples and original compositions, adds a layer of complexity to the sonic landscape, creating a melodic tapestry that seamlessly weaves into the fabric of his lyrical narrative.
It’s crucial to note that CompositionC’s journey to crafting ‘The We’reld’s Changing’ was nothing short of a labor of love, having recorded the album in his daughter’s bedroom closet with a semi-professional setup.
