"Review: The Renaissance by Msanii"

The Renaissance by Msanii

The other day I randomly stumbled onto a project while listening to the homie Monty Cold on Soundcloud. Fortunately, the project was none other than The Renaissance, an 8-track EP from Msanii, a Hyattsville, MD native and apparent rising voice in the area. The first thing that pops out to you is the dope ass album art and though we have not researched the identity of the artist or designer responsible, kudos to you nonetheless.

The project is tremendously well balanced with several surprising bangers. Beverly Hills, Never Cared, and Red Cup ft. local artist Al Chike add versatility and industry feel to an energetic indie project. Loko, produced by Razcal, would have to be my personal favorite hands down. It’s a well placed track in respect to timing, cleverly providing a mature element to a artist who is fairly new. The tape does have a few tracks that could may go overlooked but they are few and far between. I consider any project to be above average if it can appeal to the desires and industry biases of a virgin listener. All in all, not only did I realize that this was a quality piece of music but I actually liked it. Check it out now and develop your own perspective. - ThFctry

"Msanii- The Renissance EP (#TREP)"

It's time to put your boards in the water and catch this Sanii wave. The Maryland artist Msanii has finally dropped his long awaited Renissance EP. The 7 track collection mixes Msanii unmistakeable flow patterns with a mix of smooth, jazzy, gritty and hard hitting beats. Together, Sanii takes the listener for a rollercoaster ride. It's starts in the unknown with track 1. It's as if you are traveling into adesolate cave about to head into the world known as Msanii. Next, in track 2 we flow around the city, cruising, life is good. If this were a movie, the plot starts in the middle and track 3 Ima get it takes you back to hustle. Visto's voice gives that signature rasp that resonates great with DVN's beat. Track 4, Beverly Hills, gives you that high life. He foreshadows the good life ahead of him. Track 5, Rock, begins the party. (You wanna be down with Dipset? If you don't get that reference I don't know what to tell you) Red Cups in Track 6, gives the aura of the ultimate house party. The DAN (dope ass nigga) Alchike of Jungle Mafia meshes perfectly on the party anthem. Then, track 7 is the latest release off TREP, Loko. Razcal's keys and Sanii"s voice give you the ultimate mosh pit music. Finally, track 8 Never Cared (my favorite track) gives the ultimate ending to a Renaissance. The track covers some cold hearted truths and different situations anybody on the grind will deal with on the come up. Lazy Rios of the OKO camp (Odd Kids Out) delivers an impeccable feature.

"The Renaissance is Here"

Before I start this review, allow me to preface by saying this: The Renaissance EP is a near classic. Yes, I said it… or in this case wrote it. Let it be immortalized and emblazoned on my tombstone.

In a world where underground music is often overshadowed by mainstream releases—unless Drake retweets it—DMV rapper, Msanii has stormed to the forefront and demands to be heard. Enlisting the help from a smorgasbord of producers including Virginia’s own Razcal, MJ Nichols known for his work with A$AP Ant, Gunplay, Smoke DZA and Bobby Shmurda as well as a host of others, takes the EP to another level beat wise and matches Msanii’s high energy flow. It is the record that will set him apart from his peers as he continues to grow. It is his Section.80. His Comeback Season. It is his Friday Night Lights.

To paraphrase my favorite wrestler, Triple H, it’s just that damn good.

Things start off with a hard hitting introduction made more visceral by the additions of the Mortal Kombat samples on the Mac XVII-produced track aptly named, Enter: Msanii. There, Msanii gives a small sample of what to expect with this project, lyrical knowhow and great beat selection. Texas producer ComputoFre$h lends his craft to Beverly Hills, a great crossover song that Msanii uses to paint a picture of his life now and where he wants to be in the years to come. A fun track that begs to be played while driving through the city with the top down. However, throughout the EP the one constant stays at what brings him to the forefront, the lyrics and the flow. There isn't a track that does not come loaded with content that often takes another listen before the full appreciation can be felt. This also holds true for the features, with each guest flexing their lyrical muscle—especially on the ending track Never Cared where featuring artist Lazy Rios goes toe to toe with Msanii for lyrical supremacy.

The only thing holding The Renaissance back from becoming the instant classic that it should be is its run time. At only 26 minutes, Msanii leaves before he overstays his welcome and leaves the crowd wanting more, but perhaps one or two more tracks would only help his endeavors. It is a very nitpicky critique, especially in a day and age where EPs are the norm and does not detract from this great project. It is just that this writer is very greedy when it comes to good music.

You can listen to The Renaissance on Msanii’s personal Soundcloud or support his movement by purchasing the EP from his Bandcamp. You will not regret it. - Karma Lifee

"Msanii - The Renaissance EP"

Gotta love getting music from artists that don’t happen to be in my area. This plate offering comes from artist, MSanii, out of the DMV area. Just got this in my inbox and wanted to check it out and i’m not mad at all with what I heard. What caught my attention firstly were the video game sound bites in the intro of the track. Then “Riding Through My City” was just a dope ass song to follow up with. I got through a couple more tracks and I thoroughly enjoyed most of them. I’d listen to the whole thing right now, but a muphukka is on his way to work so i’ll check the rest later. Check out the tape, let me know what you guys think! - Q Shepard

"Enter: Msanii"

Msanii. Get used to saying that name, because you will be hearing it a lot soon enough. The Maryland rapper, whose name aptly means “Artist” in Swahili, has seemingly come out of nowhere and is climbing the ranks of the DMV underground like a hungry prize fighter. With a blazing performance at this year’s Epic Fest V in Richmond, Virginia, where he brought the house down, this rise is just beginning.

One jewel in his set, Loko, commanded the crowd with a passion and stage presence that not many performers possess. The Razcal Life-produced track is like stepping into an epic battle within the 13 Chambers of Wu and RZA is the final boss battle. While Msanii attacks with a lyrical prowess that would make Meth shy away. Take a listen to Loko here and check out his Soundcloud. - Karma Lifee
