K.E.V. - 'street Trophy''

Rap artist K.E.V. is about to release his first independent album called ‘Street Trophy’.

Originally from Huston, K.E.V. , after many trials ended up in L.A. where he went to school with future Death Row Records inmate Kurupt.

K.E.V. has many real life experiences and K.E.V.’s writing mirrors his feelings and experiences and thoughts.

K.E.V. worked with the group ‘Rap Mafia’ and released the ''Bring It To Your Face'' album. Unfortunately, four of his partners have been killed since the release of that collection. "I owe this to them," K.E.V. says. "That's why you don''t really hear no other rap artists on there."

The album shows a wide range and K.E.V.’s diversity as a rap artist and a hip-hop poet. Feeling and reality resonates thru out this album. Rarely is a CD filled with such feeling and ‘food for thought’ material.

One of the first things you realize is that the beats don’t carry this album; K.E.V.’s flow and talent with the spoken word does. The lyrics are meaningful and the flow is great. The beats compliment the rap, instead of what we are getting use to; where the beats carry the rapper.

CD’s come in a wide array of topics and themes. Some are just filled with party tracks meant to bang and have fun to. Every now and then a CD comes along that you can really relate to. Few of us can relate to Bentley’s and Crystal, but with the ‘Street Trophy’ Album from K.E.V. you can relate to many of the tracks that he lays out.

From the intro, which has a real meaningful ‘prayer’, you know this is a different drop. Not one of those phony ‘prayers’ but one that you can relate to, one you may have said yourself at times.

Then you are taken into the track ‘LIFE’. A perspective of life thru the thoughts and experiences of K.E.V.. And it is a track that you can relate to.

Tracks like ‘Chances’ ‘Street Trophy’, ‘Everyday’, ’Changes’. ‘Pain’, and ‘Shuda Wuda Cuda’ show the serious poetic flow of this masterful rap artist as he reveals many things that normal people can relate to.

The track ‘Churp’, which is scheduled to be the first single and whose video will be directed by Dave Meyers, is a flow on phones and all the issues dealing with them.

If you are waiting for that different or special CD release to buy, this is the one.

On a 1-10 rank, this album receives an 8.5.

If you enjoy music with a good flow and a meaningful listing experience that you can relate to and that makes you think, make sure you check out this drop by K.E.V..

The release date for 'street Trophy'' is March 22. This is a must have CD, check it out.
