AzMattic pulls out another project from up his sleeve, makin moves in big steps. Following up from his DIVIDED music video, and a collab project with RhymSter, THE JAZZ CIGARRETTE. With each big move it seems AzMattic comes with a feel good message over some lo-fi jazzy hip hop beats. With his recent release, MIND OVER METAPHORS, Pt. 1, we get more positive energy with a dope flow.
Saturated in old school energy, whether he spits over jazzy beats or hip hop, it would be reminiscent to boom bap. With his lyrics balancing words of struggle and perseverance with a good attitude and peace of mind. Starting off MIND OVER METAPHORS with ONE DAY, the tone is set with a soundbite from Waynes World, bridging into a strong chorus. “One day you gone blow up big and get paid, yeah, it’ll happen one of these days,” an easy and joyful chorus that would no doubt set a room off with chanting a live setting.
Continuing the project on the same vibe, with great appreciation on the first lines of the next tune AWAKEN. “I just do it cause i love it, it’s hard to manage when you ballin on a budget fuck it.” Vereses would Compare people and artists that do it for the love of it like himself, and others that do it for the clout and money. The beat itself can take you on Cloud 9, with a repetitive but smooth melody and a head bumpin beat pattern.
MIND OVER METAPHORS does not stuttuer in its energy, especially when it’s time to crack brews on the next track, JIMMY BUFFET. Each transition between tracks is bridged with some Hollywood and political quote excerpts, highlighting a tone of gratitude, ambition and aloofness. However chill AzMattic is, he shows you how you can be braggadocios and zen in JAY & SILENT BOB. It seems AzMattics vibe us unbreakable and the quality in his MIND OVER METAPHORS is projected into these 6 tracks with Shin-Ski!
