“Music maker and family man forced to work for the man while secretly writing fresh rhymes on his lunch breaks. That pretty much sums it up. I went full force at this music thing for a few years but expenses and needing to provide for my family forced me to put this on the back burner for a while. I’ve performed with greats such as Black Sheep, Jeru The Damaja, Kurtis Blow and many others. I was even a featured artist on the Code of the Cuts stage at the Vans Warped Tour a ways back. I’m all about helping others advance and allowing everyone to be themselves. It’s too much work to have an image that’s not your own. So now I’ve put these shoes back on to see if they still fit and hoping that not everyone has forgotten, we still need a change.” – SWITCHMC
SWITCHMC has a new album out. It’s called “Letting Go.”
Your mind tends to get blown when listening to SWITCHMC. Some rappers exist just to get paid, so they can live the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Other rappers exist to prove that there are no limits to how you rhyme and what you can rap about. If you had to box SWITCHMC into any of these categories, rhymes and content would prevail over riches in almost every instance.
It’s impossible not to notice SWITCHMC’s star rising on these tracks. The raspy voice, the smooth flow of his words, the rhythmic and confident way he delivers his lyrical bravado over solid slick beats, it’s all there. “Letting Go” grooves and builds up patiently, but by the time you get to the track “Believe,” everything keeps poppin’ head-on, the rest of the way through.
The production is fat as hell, building on itself continuously, switching up, then dropping elements, only to throw them all back in again, to grab and hold your attention.
The standouts? “Ring Of Death Like My Xbox,” with it’s hypnotic sense of urgency, or the atmospheric slower groove of “Inner Struggle.”
But those aren’t the only gems on this album. “Blank Pages” complete with a slinky, seductive hand clapping rhythm and “Darkness” Ft Jive, with it’s creeping big banging beat and melodic chorus line, keeps your vision focused on the whole image continuously.
It becomes clear from listening to “Letting Go,” that SWITCHMC has too much potential to not break through in a big way, sometime in the near future.
