C.Shreve the Professor comes on a different vibe each track you catch him on. The college professor (and college football player in another life) gives us hard boombap on one track, then flips the proverbial script and gives us smoothed out conscious vibes the next. Such is the case on his newest release, the seven-track Mommy Love To Dance EP.
The project, which Shreve made sure to notate is “not a traditional dance album by any means,” is a nice mix of lyricism and funky vibes. The project, as a whole, kind of reminds me of Talib’s “Hot Thing” in some ways. There is an edge that leans towards “new school” loverman rap and walks that fine line between “pop” and “strictly for the bar-heads.” However, it’s not just about a woman Shreve is looking at, just as “Hot Thing” isn’t just about a woman Talib’s infatuated with. The project definitely keeps Shreve’s musical roots wide open on display as well, bars and substance over dope beats. Check out the project below, be on the lookout for Shreve’s Daddy Love To Rap project (which is coming soon), and support dope music in all its forms.
