[EP REVIEW]: J Roy Champion – Hawaiian $hirt$ & Work

template-2panel revised [Converted]


[BOSTON] Making his third appearance on NikkiSiixx.com, after his releases like his singles “Hawaiian $hirt$” & “Ashes”. This time we take a look at J Roy Champion’s Hawaiian $hirt$ & Work Mixtape. But here’s a little bit more on the Boston Artist. Growing up with family who embraced music from Blues, Reggae, Classic R&B, and even Hip-Hop. (Thanks to his Father, who was a DJ for years prior to his birth, and there after). This gave J Roy Champion an advantage of learning about music at an early age. Don’t think J Roy Champion is a new comer when already having released eight solo mixtapes to date, his focus now is on his own brand, starting fresh, and redefining himself as a fan of Hip-Hop Culture and being a creator of Hip-Hop music.

Now we have he’s latest mixtape Hawaiian $hirt$ & Work, the six track project definitely provides insightful lyrics over promising production. I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off the project. And they are Nazareth, Witne$$, Hawaiian Shirt$, A$hes, and Never.

[01] NAZARETH From the production to an actual visual to J Roy Champion single, I really find this track to be very powerful. “I’m God Like On My Fight To Nazareth” its like nothing can stop him on his journey to making it to the top.

[03] WITNE$$ Keeping his family close, working hard like a hustler but keeping his mind clean with the Lord on his side. Knowing who’s on his side there no doubts on J Roy Champion side. Also, the hook is extremely catchy! How can you not like this track?

template-2panel revised [Converted][04] HAWAIIAN SHIRT$ – By 2:29 there’s a switch up and I really like the approach to that snippet. It literally felt like I was jamming to another track. HAWAIIAN SHIRTS was produced by Hona Castello and co-produced by Savilion.

[05] A$HES – A$HES, features six of Boston’s Finest Emcees: J Roy Champion, Intl Show, Ken Casanova, Exec The Bright, DaGirl IzReal, and Kenny Klutch. A$HES presents us with a classic 90’s hip-hop beat which was produced by Savilion. By having all this talent on the track definitely provides a cypher theme going on. Its pretty dope he still embodies the concept after getting inspired when he discovered the underground scene through a cypher.

[06] NEVER Ends it a bit slow but still leaves you with a punch in the face. Giving you a descriptive story that it’s hard not to visualize it. J Roy Champion is a great story-teller and found a perfect flow for this type of production, produced by International Show.

Hawaiian Shirts & Work is now available for purchase at all digital retail outlets like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody, and Google Play. Mixed and Mastered by Intl Show at SOE Studios Written and Arranged by J Roy Champion (BMI). Be on the lookout for more content from Boston’s own J Roy Champion by following him on all his social media outlets below and this concludes my review on his EP.

Download: Kaso – Back To The Future Lost in Time Mixtape

Back to future

Back to future

Indy C.T. Hip-Hop Artist Kaso released his mixtape Back To The Future – Lost in Time. via Datpiff. I find the sixteen track project was a great introduction to Kaso, The Artist. First time listening and I gotta say “very dope!” Production is on point and Kaso’s presence on the mixtape stays strong through the entire journey back to the future.

My favorite tracks off Back To The Future – Lost in Time are Blunt Ride (Produced By Talen Ted), TimeLess (Produced By Talen Ted), Swiss Percission (Produced By AdoTheGod), Gotta Hustle (Produced By AdotheGod), Isolation (Produced By AndreOnBeat), Request Line (Produced By Talen Ted), Favorite Girl (Produced By RmbJustize), and Momentum Shift (Produced By AndreOnBeat).

The concept of the project places Kaso in his car after the repair shop and noticed something was different on his radio, upon twisting the dial into which he thought would adjust the stations on his newly acquired “Satellite radio system” he was launched into a journey through sound and time. This concept portrays perfectly through the mixtape.

My goal for Back To The Future – Lost in Time mixtape was to use music to give an experience similar to on felt at a movie screening, through suspense, sadness, happiness and many other feelings on the spectrum of emotion. -KASO
