Review by: Justyn Brodsky
Insatiable rhyming techniques, dynamically laid back beats with a witty and compelling lyrical approach that make Hip Hop Pioneers, Strangers of Necessity, a force to be reckoned with.
Especially with their LP release The Layover. A vibrant collection of tracks that have that undeniable chillout feel. Something you can lay back and smoke a nice blunt to, but at the same time allows you to hear their artistic merit through the Rappers’ fresh rhymes that easily encompass their brand of Hip Hop that gives SON the defining factors of their branded and blended sound, and persona.
With each track bringing something fresh to the table, the tracks that stood out to me as the best single-worthy anthems and undeniable first impressions are “Revolving Door” and the banger “Get Some”. Chillout tracks with charismatic forefronts between the rhymers that keep you on your toes, and the vibe still chill and genuinely abrasive at the same time; leaving room to really showcase the group’s likability factors through many elements that these songs combine.
There’s an apparent and effective influence that can be heard on The Layover that brings us back to the glory days of the 90s, and the underground indie approach of today’s more lovable Hip Hop artists that aren’t contributing to the commercial destruction of the genre.
But if and when Strangers of Necessity do blow up in the way I’m hoping, this is the group that’s gonna bring back the glory days of rock-solid talent, and at the same time are gonna also change the game for the better. When you take a listen to The Layover, you’ll see exactly why. And we can’t stress enough to check them out before their major break hits the ground running.
