New Mixtape: Steelo I.B. x Practice #StayTruu

Steelo I.B. x Practice

Listen: STEELO I.B. x Practice

Steelo I.B. is back with his new mixtape called ‘Practice’. The project features notable industry instrumentals in which he displays an upward trajectory of subject matter, culture influencing, lyricism, flows and intricate rhyme patterns with overall pride in being a superior MC that is displayed on any verse he touches.  ‘Practice’ is strengthen by Steelo’s ability to showcase in-depth growth as an artist as well as the ability to paint a canvas of society and the music industry in it’s current terms; which has happened on each project from the Virgin Islands’ native, an example of that is on the “Made You Look Exhibition” Steelo raps “…niggas unarmed/cops let the glock sing a love song/to a black man/cuz they love dat/hate to see a nigga getting success/now that’s real hate, not jealousy/this a system that look at us as the enemy…” Lines like these are compelling and shows that Steelo is well aware of the injustices that predicate our society and also not allowing the stresses of life to stop your focus on your purpose and to always forge on because in the next line he says “…so I could give a fuck if a nigga throwing shade/ with sunshine, children never know how to behave/ it’s crunch time, something like MJ with the fade/a Sensei with the blade, get the fuck up out my way, it’s Lo…”  Powerful lyrics that reasonate and had that on repeat for me!!!  The only feature is from his brother and stand out MC in his own right,  Jaunee Be as they go back and forth in an exchange of shrewd and witty lines from both MCs on the ‘Love Me Exhibtion’ track, Jaunee raps “… this ain’t Cairo, Rome filthy, Babylon fall til then collect gold for when the dollar withdraws, drop jewels pick up gems, no illusion involved, stay truu what???…” and Steelo professing “…I know I said I was the best, but my bro’s better, I used to love Clipse but I think our flows better…” I absolutely appreciate the confident humility in artists, so when I hear lines like those, it gravitates to the kid in me that grew up loving Hip Hop MCs who were able to showcase the human factor we all possess with memorable bars.  Other stand out tracks include “Humble Exhibition”, “Keep Ya Head Up Exhibition” & “Life Exhibiton”.  Steelo does a great job grabbing some clever interludes and samples mixed in with picking some classic beats, while delivering stand out culture defining verses across the board.  ‘Practice’ has the potential to cast his name into the industry spotlight of conversations of dope MCs that we should be taking note of and to me, he has certainly established himself as top tier MC in the industry.  Steelo’s verses are so pristine and effortless that one can tell that one of his past times is ‘Practice’ … yes we’re talking about ‘Practice’!!! Definitely check out this project for the new wave of what’s to come in Hip Hop!!!  #StayTruu
