"These Review"

These” has a bouncy synth intro that reminds of a street and club banger the likes produced by Black Metaphor or Young Chop and the alternating stabs and arpeggiated chord play sets the stage for L.H. to come through with a veracious flow that seems to ratchet (no pun intended) up the hype with “At the top of the rap game where I belong/ my n*ggas sippin’ henno and they blowin’ on that strong” which serve to project L.H. as well-versed in the neon light ridden themes of the club filled wall to wall with beautiful women, bottles topped with sparklers and exotic strains of marijuana.
One thing that comes across in spades when listening to “These” is that L.H. is comfortable painting the vivid pictures that go along with his lifestyle. Every bar is tactful, unerring and sets the listener up for the chorus in just the right way. More than anything I didn’t get the full effect of the cut until I blasted it in my car the way the song is supposed to be. The deep, rich lows of the subs knocked heavily and only added to the overall feel. There aren’t many rappers that sound good on beats like this but L.H. did his thing in grand fashion.
Back to the chorus: it is tightly polished and has all the sensibilities of a summer heat rock: a percussive mute for four beats creating ample drama before the downbeat resumes, catchy and repeatable call-and-response lyrics and a killer synth lead that when put together makes this song that much more memorable. Overall, the song is radio and club friendly and if L.H.’s goal was to create a sonic representation of his life, he’s most definitely succeeded.

Still working on that hot first release.



*L.H.* is a hip hop artist and performer from the south and west sides

of the city of Chicago. L.H. grew up listening to West Coast rappers

like *Tupac Shakur, Ice Cube* and *NWA* as well as rap from the Dirty South

like Houston's *Scarface*, and *Hot Boys* from New Orleans. Make no mistake

though, L.H. is solid Midwest and he represents Chicago. Even so,

L.H. has ambition and a goal to breakout beyond the confines of the

Windy City's gritty streets. He doesn't *just* want to become a great

writer of rhymes—he wants to be the *greatest* lyricist of all time.

L.H. draws much of his inspiration from God and family as well as a

genuine love and appreciation of rap music. He's committed to the words as

well as the beats. As a writer, he thinks out of the box which makes his

music stand out in a world full of cookie cutter MCs. As L.H. says, "What

makes my music unique is my unique voice mixed with picture painting

lyrics. I want you to feel my passion with every song while also being


L.H. gets by with a little help from his friends, like Hardboiled and

J.Ross. It is through the mutual respect of his peers and the

collaborations among them that allows L.H. the opportunity to continue to

develop his game. He works hard at every song, no track is a throw-away,

and there's no such thing as filler when he goes to work. He uses

everything at his disposal from trappish beats to samples of classic hip

hop. L.H. works on his hooks and he likes to hook the females with his

sly rhymes. He'll make your head bob too.

While L.H. doesn't mind giving props to the hip hop artists who've

inspired him, like fellow Chicagoans *Twista* and *Common* and *Lupe Fiasco*,

as he grows as a performer, he prefers to let his own experiences in life,

as well as his personality, influence his music. Hip hop is his heart

though, and that will always shine through.

L.H. is currently working on an EP. He's also

working in collaboration with *Hardboiled* on a joint effort that will be

released this year as well.


*This is real hip hop*
