Tsu Surf – Newark Review

This album is full of personal and emotional stories peppered withg the big ego that has made Hip Hop great. Tsu Surf takes his battling experiance and uses it to make his rhymes exactly what the tracks need.

The production is somewhat haunting and helps create the thought provoking atmosphere that the album needs. Each beat has similar aspects but have enough changes so the listener knows when the tracks have changed. Maybe a more vibrant and energetic track could show that Surf can handle more than one type of track, but he does that one type well.

The lyricism is great with Tsu drawing on his battles to allow for a wealth of wordplay wisdom. He easily bends his rhymes into complex, complicated masterpieces that really allow the story telling to shine through. Maybe some changes in flow or delivery could make a few more interesting moments, but Surf does an excellent job on this.

The features are great from big names to people with great chemistry. Each does a really great job of pushing Surf to greatness while showing that they either have what it takes to be a star, or still qualify as one. Some more singers might have been a good addition to the project but the selection on here is fantastic.

Overall, this is an enjoyable album with  lot of back story. Tsu Surf has made a respectable project here and is opening doors for battle rappers everywhere.
