Beezy Waldo – Gift To The Game (Album) [Review]
Vancouver, BC – Take a look at what our girl Nicola Storey has to say about the debut album from Vancitys Beezy Waldo titled Gift To The Game. We’re looking forward to seeing what this young emcee has in store so check out the review after the jump.
Gift To The Game by Beezy Waldo starts with a supposed “gift to the game” but comes out as more of a cheesy opening commentary. While his sentiment is nice this wrapped present is a little lack-luster when you tear it open, although his sampling will surprise you with his well chosen chillin’, raw tunes.
Waldo’s flow leaves you feeling like you’re in a high school playground battle but his words are that of wisdom in “If This World” with lyrics like “Ambition to the fire inside the belly of the beast/That’s why separation is key to humanity and peace.“ Then the album breaks into “Welcome To the City” with a feature by Aye Town bringing chill vibes to his tracks and picking up what was lacking in “If This World”- a true anthem to Vancity.
“My Thang” then continues the smooth sampling with weaker flow and lack of intricate lyrics, as B. Waldo puts it, he is a true “Rookie of the year.” The album continues with more mediocre songs such as “Hope” but then fires back with “Does Her Own,” an R&B bar filled track that will leave you groovin’ in your panties all night long. “For A Dream” featuring Emotionz (a Vancity hip hop regular) has it all, swagalicious beats, sick flow and steezy rhymes.
The album ends with a smashing bang with “Last Forever.” While the album starts with some weaker elements it ends by tantalizing your ear buds. It begs you to perk your ears and listen. Grab a free copy of Gift To The Game here.
