Elite – Awaken [Mixtape]

Posted by on November 18, 2011

A couple months back when I introduced Elite to the FNT family, I explained his journey as producer and rapper along with his relationship with other artists such as J. Cole and Voli.  Since then, Elite has released a few more singles in preparation for his first project as a solo hip-hop artist, Awaken, which he dropped just a week ago.  It’s not fair to say his progression is overly evident because quite honestly the first time I heard him I was blown away.  Everything from his voice, to the lyrics, to the hooks, to the production, to the delivery has always been on point.  Awaken is a mixtape you ABSOLUTELY DON’T WANT TO SLEEP ON.  Although it’s rooted with hip-hop, it almost has an alternative sound to it, similar to something OnCue may put together.  Speaking of which, I’d love to hear a collab from these two.

I’ve highlighted a few cuts below if you’re looking for appetizers, but I highly suggest just skipping to the main entré and downloading the tape in full.  #DreamVille
