Denver, CO - August, 19th 2011 - Streetwise & Poetic Just-Is: Rhyme & Reason "An Elevated State" is the first, official album release on Denver based, Merchantz Entertainment LLC. This is not your typical hip hop album, it reaches out to the listeners and strives to uplift and empower people of all walks of life. Songs like "On Our Way", "Changing the Game", and "For Everybody" are all powerful examples of songs written with purpose.

Streetwise & Poetic Just-Is have been crafting this album over the course of the last year. The process has been one of personal growth for the duo. They worked hard to provide a sound scape that is raw, and emotional, but also one that celebrates life and uplifts the spirit. Their mission is to make good quality music, which shows originality, creativity, and the ability to impact people on a large scale. Songs like "Keep Holding" on and "Broken Dreams", remind you to continue to believe in yourself and never let go of your dreams. While they may be most at home on powerful, gripping songs, they have no problem transitioning in to smooth, party music. Songs like "She Lookin' Like" and "We Livin" are proof that these two have versatility and range in their music.

Rhyme & Reason is one of the most compete independent albums you will see to date. With songs that touch on most every subject, and mood, they provide depth and insight as far as content is concerned. With Streetwise Producing the entire album it has a cohesive and strategic sound, although they admit, “we have reached out to some other great producers for projects following Rhyme & Reason,” right now they couldn't be more pleased with the way this album turned out.

"Delivery is definitely a strong point for you. You end your lines on point, have good clarity, and control of the track. You sound confident. You also have a strong voice. I like an artist that shows inflections and deflections in their voice, it adds emotion. I give you a 9 out of 10. "
