NEW Review for Center of Attention


New review for Center of Attention provided by Sean Deez of This is Hip Hop fame...

“Praverb speaks on reality every time he is in presence of a microphone.” These are the words I read in the media package that contained the album by Praverb, Center of Attention. His pride in speaking about what is right in front of our eyes but not seen by everyone is apparent throughout the subject matter on the album. Unlike most emcees these days, there is something extraordinarily special about Praverb and that is his ability to sound very well spoken, educated, intellectual and legit. Even though this is only his second release, the religiously based lyricist out of Virginia brings an interesting flavor to the hip hop game.

What I love about this album is that it is just over a half-hour, there is no filler and I couldn’t be happier. Speaking of filler, Praverb The Wyse, does not curse: “I’ll be the first rapper played without a radio edit”, so expect nothing but straight rhymes from beginning to end. Because it is a short album, there is very little...

The WEST is back...

The West Coast is re-emerging once again thanks to the talented lyricism being displayed. Artists such as Blu, Pacific Division, and Shawn Jackson are ushering in a new era of emcee. I have always been a fan of the Left Coast because of people like Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Too Short, NWA, Ice Cube, C-Bo, E-40, Luniz, Yukmouth, and more. I guess you can say I was influenced by the gangsta rap that dominated the 80's and mid 90's. As time progressed I was introduced to Ras Kass, who happens to be one of my favorite rhyme spitters. I would listen to his material via cd player or Walkman and constantly hit the rewind button. I was also exposed to other emcees during this time, most notably Crooked I, Encore, Hieroglyphics, Planet Asia, Rasco, Dilated Peoples, Xzibit, Kurupt, WC, Mack 10, B Real, and more. These artists provided a base or foundation for where I am today and why I respect the culture as a whole. Who would have imagined that a west coast emcee would drop a freestyle every week for a year (Crooked), or that an unknown emcee would surprise folks with a stellar release (Blu). I believe that hip-hop will continue to evolve and balance will be restored, remember that we are all individuals and we have the power to not be forcefed material.
