A couple days ago I hipped some of you to Eddie Caine's song Versace Visions from his latest offering Patron Rita. Now that I've digested the tape, I give to you the official Doing Justice review.
I definitely give the man his props for is not spitting cliche, flatout irksome swag rap. Instead, he gives us introspective lyrics and a variation of flows so the tape doesn't seem like one long song that drones on and on.
The only thing cliche about the tape is the subject matter, but then again there's only so much one can talk about in a lifetime.
The one and only negative I can find is his, and other rappers, narrative of the "woeful stripper." How they can see her beauty despite her poledancing; about her troubled past and present. I'm not sure of the purpose of it. This is an honest question that invites discussion.
But I digress.
My 3 favorite tracks are sumHER, Versace Visions, and His and Hers; Red Eyes. The 2 "Eh" worthy joints are drunkgirlscallingme (because of the beat and hook), and blackswan: color me bad (because of aforementioned narrative of a stripper).
Those are my thoughts on the tape. Been listening to Eddie Caine for awhile, so I was already a fan. I'd give it a 4 out of 5. Peep the tape and share your thoughts.
