Accent — Sight & Sound EP (Produced by Kid Vision)
Posted by jeffwbaird on December 12, 2012
Step into the mind of Accent, where stories take the form of tantalizing rhythms, flows, and cadences. Where a simple emotion is invoked through intricately-crafted lyrics, exhibiting strong language skills through alliteration and the most advanced rhyme-schemes you’ve heard from anyone this year. Rarely does an artist with this level of talent arise, and when they do — it feels like it’s only days before they ascend into hip-hop royalty. Tonight we are proud to sponsor Accent’s latest EP, Sight & Sound, a collaboration with producer Kid Vision — an EP that sits under twenty minutes in length, but will take months to fully digest. Accent’s pure skill as an emcee is clearly evident here, but what is most amazing is how even when rhyming repetitiously, the message remains so flawless and detailed. Accent is a poet and storyteller, no question, yet he has the kind of flow that excites listeners who can’t even begin to comprehend the content. He’s a rapper’s rapper in the truest sense — one who embodies such a strong devotion to the music he creates, and has a real sense of integrity about his content. This phenomenal EP includes collaborations with Chyna Griffin (Faith Evans’ daughter), as well as two with Kinetics, whom he recorded alongside this summer—as well as Mike Stud, Missy Modell, and others. Enjoy this tape’s ingenuity and genuine songwriting, and download below.
