From the beats, to the features ( Angel Davenport, Mon’Aire, Bianca Shaw, Eman, Tay Devito especially killed on their appearances) to the lyrics and just mood, this EP holds is worth bragging about. It’s very telling of the creativity and versatility of an artist like Deshawn Flaire, that he can hold over audiences who prefer conscious, underground sounding hip-hop to club-y, pop-structured tracks as well, with a skill that not many artist (mainstream to MC underground) can posses, let alone groom, it’s a refreshing feat that should one day put Deshawn Flaire among Chicago’s contemporary heavyweights in hip-hop. - OUTSKIRT NOISE
