Dion Lynch – L.N.S.D. [Mixtape]

Calgary, AB – On Feb. 13, Dion Lynch dropped his latest project entitled L.N.S.D. This 13-track tape combines Lynch’s L.N.S.D. Vol 1 and L.N.S.D Vol. 2 into one all-encompassing project (with six new tracks, for your listening pleasure, too).

The project was fully produced by David Torre$. The album artwork was done by the K XCIV. Check it out below and cop a download of L.N.S.D. via Bandcamp. This is one project you don’t want to sleep on. Lynch is probably one of my favourite newcomers on-the-rise right now, and definitely my pick for the best rookie MC coming out of YYC, at the moment.

You probably remember some of our favourite tracks from Lynch’s first two tapes. Like “I Be On That.” Or my all-time favorite Lynch joint: “Ride Out.” But these new tracks may quite possibly be even better. You’ll have to decide for yourself, though.

By now, you may be familiar with Dion Lynch’s striking resemblance to ASAP Rocky. It’s mostly the hair, and the smile. But it’s still a resemblance. You feel me? Every time I see him, I’m like, “Yo is that ASAP Rocky? Oh, no it isn’t. It’s just Dion Lynch.” So get this: on the project, he’s taken an ASAP Ferg track (“A Hundred Million Roses”) and done his thing with it. The end result is “Roses.” And it’s quite a mature look for Lynch. Dude is mobbing. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Lynch angry. But on this joint, he gets mad hungry. Like, “I’m putting n*ggas in their graves,” hungry. He’s starting to think like an artist. It’s a nice evolution to see.

When we first met up with Lynch last year, he was kind of timid. But after a monstrous few months of video releases and gaining local hype, as well a debut 10 at 10 performance, it seems like Lynch is starting to come to terms with the fact that he could take his craft beyond the YYC city limits. He’s thinking international.
