Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Danielle Ferguson
A presentation of laid-back, imaginative, and a more subtle & ambient approach to Hip Hop allowing a song to have more foreground to showcase the true nature of an Artist’s actual talent like it is meant to be.
This description is perfectly fitting to Recording Artist, Alonzo, and his single “TRIPPYNation”. A Hip Hop song that eases you in, rather than sounding alarms and setting off sirens that the genre obnoxiously tends to hit you over the head with.
This is not the case for Alonzo at all, and throughout most of the Hip Hop we’ve been reviewing over these past months, it seems to be heading in a similar if not very close to the same approach among the underground Hip Hop artists we’ve discovered and reviewed. Which in my opinion, if the major label artists don’t tone it down a bit, the Indie/Underground is gonna push them out of the way. Or these brilliant underground Hip Hop artists could possibly risk being plagiarized.
Alonzo‘s track has a very R&B-oriented beat that makes this song melodic, emotional, innovative, and very memorable. It has that staying power where you could put this track on repeat, but better yet, let the tracks play out. Especially his song “Mystique”. Another song with a clear presentation of how well executed Alonzo‘s talent is with the forefront’s room to show off his dynamically gifted mic skills and witty nature to his rhyming.
Again, Alonzo is more solidified proof that Indie Hip Hop is going to be tossing a tarp over the majors and nailing down each corner with a railroad spike. Connect, listen, reach out, and get to know these artists before it’s too late! Because these artists are heading for much bigger things sooner than you think.
