Elohim Marino – Son Of Hip Hop

Welcome Elohim Marino to the Rapmullet review section. Boulevard music is in full effect. If you don’t know what that is you will soon enough. There is most def a movement in NYC right now, its in the early stages and some MCs doent even now their a part of it but its real. Real being the key word. Real meaning real life, the truth, real facts, real lyrics, real messages. Step outside of the “colonial” music industry and you will find real MCs doing real music just like Elohim Marino.

I haven’t heard any MC open their CD like Elohim Marino did with “Think”. Who asks the listener to “think” now a days? And I quote: “Take a minute to think / before you pull that fifth / take a second to blink / we don’t own our existince / we lost our identity / so you tell me who the enemy?” One listen and you know the direction of the CD. The track that was really really speaking to me as a whole (beat/flow/lyrics) was “Boulevard Music “. It was in the Rapmullet IPod a couple weeks ago. Click the link, soak it up like a sponge…”Boule Music” in it’s purest form; that hook is crazy. One line that speaks volumes and I quote: “being a man is something these new cats won’t teach you cause they shittin’ on the hood with their scriptures.” Think about that shit man…it’s true. I wish I could highlight each track but I have to leave something for readers to go cop the CD and support good music. With that said, to say “Troubles With God” is a deep track is an understatment. I don’t care who you are, there’s a verse on here you can relate to at some point in your life. Concept wise “You Wish ” is bitch slapping the shit out of hip pop culture. I like the way they flipped the beat giving Elohim Marion a lil different sound which enabled him to get busy with the word play. If you don’t nod your head to this…I can’t help you.

I feel almost guilty having got a copy of the CD for free to review. This is music you “have to” support. It’s funny to me, people always complaining about music sucks but if you look hard enough there is good music out there. I guess that’s were Rapmullet comes into play too. If you’re into lyrics or MCs dropping jewels in their rhymes to make you think you need to cop this CD. Production wise Tony 2 Tone did his thing. The production compliments everything about Elohim Marino and what he’s got to say. I wouldn’t change a thing. If anything tho I would want to hear a couple more up tempo joints just to balance out the slow flow tracks that are so hard hitting lyrically. Elohim Marino is a skilled MC putting out good music in a time where “they” don’t want you to know he exists…be thankful he does and support. The “Boule Movement” is real.
