Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I’ll be reviewing Sir Veterano’s return album, “The Gathering”. This album consists of lucky 13 tracks with a running time of 42 minutes. This album gathers all the Rap Legends! From San Diego’s OG rapper Mitchy Slick to Planet Asia, MC Eiht, Ras Kass, Bishop Lamont, Murs, Fashawn and more! This album was released under the label Fresh Yard Records! I read an article where Sir Veterano said he felt like he felt like he dug himself out the music grave hence the cover art. As a horror fan the cover art grabbed by attention and I instantly got spooky vibes from some of the snippets on IG! The production on this is filled with hard hitting beats with that grimey/spooky vibe! The emcees also brought their best bars!!!
Right from the start the first track, “Funeral Music” ft. Ras Kass and Bishop Lamont leaves you mentally scarred! Then we get Fashawn with his melodic flow on the track, “All Hail The King”. Then the single that I first heard from this project was, “Reputable” ft. Mitchy Slick, Planet Asia and MC Eiht is dope, you can just vibe to it! The instrumental goes crazy too! Also the visuals for this track was amazing! One of the stand out tracks for me was also “Verbal Assault” with the alien spaceship type instrumental and Phat Kat went on a lyrical rampage! Go check this project don’t sleep!!!
Thank you for reading my album review! Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!
