Wreckless Music (Ejay) - Think 2010

Hear The Track Here

'I think about things that drive me out my brain/ the things I think about drive a normal person insane' raps Wrekless Music Ejay and if that doesn't tell you that - in fact - we all think alike, nothing will. So, with that little mind*** rattling around your brain, lets get on because Think 2010 is the last track out of the bag this month and I'm knackered. Over the space of a couple of years and a half dozen or so tracks, Wreckless has made his presence felt around Soundclick at least, and certainly with this reviewer. His tracks of 2008 and 2009 were quite remarkable with Old Times (October 2008) and Words Kill (August 2009) being the total standouts. He also got a Must Have for Tie My Hands (March 2010) under his e j hooker is my name bandname (I know but think deeply, it'll make sense)

I have a lot of time these days for Soundclick hip hop because, for my money, it has some truly talented people in it. People who want to make music to communicate rather than procreate or appropriate (you'll have to think a lot deeper for that one). Musically, Wreckless has generally stayed pretty close to the hip hop standard but that is one of his strengths, he knows what he is good at and that's rapping so although the beats better be hot, they do play a very distinct backseat to the main event. Verbal pyrotechnics of a very high standard and when Wreckless raps that 'I promised I wouldn't curse in this verse' you'd better believe that's exactly what is coming.

The main reason I am such a big fan of Soundclick rappers in particular is that, mostly, the profanity is pointed and cogent. Oh sure there are some that pepper every song with as much profanity as they can muster but that doesn't do much for me. As a counterpoint Wreckless swears but once in this entire multi-million word assault and it is such heartfelt and meaningful profanity we can all relate to it. Lyrical flow, vocal dexterity and an insane ability to ride the beat marks out a good hip hop musician in my books and Wreckless Music has proved that point time and time again.

Excellent stuff and Highly Recommended.
