Victoria, BC – While some artists show up with a mere few tracks, others realize that riding fans appreciate a little something extra to hold them over. Victoria-based rapper and Legendary Hammers artist, Discreet, graces fans with his latest album Victoria’s Secret, which is a project full of introspective and heavy-spit bars – painting a picture of success through adversity with an undertone of repping for Victoria. It’s his fourth album release thus far and the follow-up to his last project, The BARbarian. Boasting a solid 25-tracks, it’s bound to leave listeners satisfied as it doesn’t fail to touch all of the bases in subject matter either.

Discreet rolls out new album Victoria's Secret and dominates for Victoria -

This album has no shortage of quotable punchlines or clever wordplay, and displays overall versatility as an artist. With 25 songs of self-reflection, it’s apparent that the rapper is an open book with nothing to hide – a trait that works for him on this album. Tracks like “Heat Rises” & “Fortune N’ Fame” live up to the his name as “The BARbarian”, while “Get Away” gives a closer look into the personal life of the emcee. It also touches on realer subjects like the struggle of battling with visitation to see his daughter on “Pain”. as well as speaking on the rapper’s battle with depression and substance abuse.

Listeners get a glimpse into life in Victoria on “Luv My City” which acts as an opening anthem, and “Loyal” calls out an every man for himself mentality. Tracks like “Writin’ on the Wall” and “Hustle Hard” come in with a strong and confident vibe to put the rapper into front-view as a competitive force for Victoria. Discreet gives the lady something to vibe to on “Don’t Wana” where the emcee gets a little more honest, rapping bars about treating a woman with respect which proves to be an endearing move. “Bad For Me” is also a nice slowed down track which talks about the desire for a quality female rather than the ones caught up in a superficial lifestyle.

Whether you’re looking to find some banger jams to put on with your guys, or a girl who’s looking to find a jam that speaks to everything that your ex wasn’t – there’s something for everyone on this album in regards to subject matter. The overall sound of this project has so much variety that it leaves listeners feeling satisfied by hitting all the bases, and making sure it appeals to a wide audience. Check out the album below, and head over to Bandcamp if you’re really about that support. You can find out more about this project and the Victoria rapper, here.
