#BringItBack: Revisiting @SIULHUGHES’ Debut: Lastname, Hughes

xU5opfrv

Siul Hughes’ debut project (Lastname, Hughes) has officially hit iTunes, so we thought it appropriate to drop our review alongside it. Cop the album, take it in, enjoy it, and read our track by track review below.

With a smooth sample of India Arie’s “Video” as part of the soundscape for the project’s lead off track “It Depends,” Hughes begins sharing who he is. Honest lyrics which feel almost like the emcee is just flowing and sharing a stream of consciousness stand out on the laid back, simplistic, but powerful production. Line that made me say “indeed:”

“and the ones who say I’ve changed really know what they been missin’”

Pressing play on the R. Johnson (1/3 of The Breed) produced “Paperboy,” it’s time to turn up the volume and get a little more up in yo’ grill. Love the bounce to this song (a given with R. Johnson on production) and the subject matter is on point/something we can all relate to – all of us on the pursuit of greatness and paper that is. Aside from weaving in some dope and comical wordplay like, “went to El Segundo lost my innocence oh have you seen her? write my rhymes on picket signs, R.I.P. to Marvin dude! Testify where Hip Hop died, bet it was in Marvin’s –“ into this track – rhymes detailing and emphasizing the plan to get those stacks and out work you on the way ring out.

Braggin Rights connects with the Ivy League Team for his latest release, “Money Baby” – which is very dope b. It’s great listening to Bragg’s music because he’s an artist that you know is dropping something real & authentic every time. Peep the visual below laced with cameos from fellow New Haven partners in rhyme Cam Kashier, Tye Henney, Kwa Po, & of course A. Broadway – great seeing a group of young black men sticking & working together in New Haven, unfortunately something that’s very rare.
