The latest chapter in Cincy’s widely slept on Hip Hop tale includes MC Forty and Wonder Brown’s latest album Walking Words. Consider this a little teaser because Forty’s about to drop his solo effort produced entirely by DJ Clutch. Wonder Brown is set to release his album with Cas Metah as the duo Darke Bros. This album is free and is produced by Wes Pendleton (Illect Recordings signee).
The album starts off with Rollin, a strong introductory track to the album. The guitar riffs in the beat make this one a definite repeat. The track also features Sean Little who also released his album VS a while back, all three emcees murder this beat. Right off the bat, Wes Pendleton had some real dope beats on this album and you can actually find some of them on his album My Life Complete.
The middle four tracks of this album are personal favorites. To be honest, this album is MC Forty’s coming out party and Off The Track feels like an interlude where Forty showcases his skills and let the listener know what he’s working with; the track is filled with clever lines and if you weren’t totally sold on the young emcee beforehand, this track should do it.
The second single off the project, Express This Vision is your classic love song with Wonder Brown laying down an amazing hook and with both bringing some heartfelt rhymes to whomever ladies are in their lives right now. Tryin is the favorite song on the album. The album is mostly chill, tongue and cheek rhymes, Tryin deviates from that and adds some serious to the project.
At the end of the day, this was a solid project, it’s the perfect album to keep you tided over until Darke Bros and Forty’s solo album. This album is a really good introduction to MC Forty. He has a lot of potential, keep your ear pressed to the ground for him. Wonder Brown continues to show his prowess as a veteran in the hip hop game, the weird thing is the homey has yet to drop a solo LP. If that doesn’t say something about these two guys, go download this album for free.
