Dan-e-o – Inevitable [Album]

Toronto, ONOriginally published Nov. 12, 2013Inevitable is the latest release from Toronto MC and actor Dan-e-o (of Perfeck Strangers and Monolith fame). Inevitable is nicely summarized by this press release below:

“It’s been a long time coming. But it was inevitable that it would happen. Featuring guest performances by Red Rat, Chip Fu, Rich Kidd, SepTo, Brotha J, Dwayne Morgan and more, Dan-e-o’s long overdue third album Inevitable is being heralded as his best work to date. On this 14-track URBNET Records offering, Dan-e-o weaves vintage golden-era-esque lyrical head bangers in and out with introspective soul songs to present a mature, witty and heartfelt hip-hop roller coaster ride of emotion.

Collaborating with Monolith co-founder Charisma a.k.a. Skizzz, who handles the production of the album in its entirety, Dan-e-o has crafted a project that is as sensually soulful as it is “hit-’em-where-it-hurts” raw. Also including doses of rhythm and blues and dancehall reggae, Inevitable delivers on all points musically.

Lyrically, Dan-e-o has never been better. Unashamed to expose his vulnerable “I’ve been hurt” side while at the same time only too eager to unleash his ever-bragadocious “world’s greatest MCisms,” Inevitable presents Dan-e-o as both expert lyricist and soulful crooner all at once.

The multifaceted rapper, singer, songwriter and actor is unflinching in his insistence that he is a force to be reckoned with in the worldwide musical landscape. His rightful place atop it, as it were, is Inevitable.
