Above is the latest from Torontonian Sorce Manifesto, Shoot the Breeze. I happened onto the project via SubmitHub when Manifesto sent two songs from the album for review. Those first two songs made me want to check it out and the entire project made me glad I did. The dynamic EP features songs such as the conceptual “Purpose over Profit,” which finds its story based slightly on the tornado scene in The Wizard of Oz and partly based off the idea of living a purpose-driven right.
Overall, the project’s for the BARS type of rap fans. However, it’s not just for those types; that’s because the project is diverse. The production sounds different on each track, even in its boombap-centric sound. The lyrics are also quite impressive, but also mellowed-out enough that any rap fan can absorb the knowledge and thought processes presented.
In other words, this one’s a banger, through and through. It’s lyrical, it thumps in the trunk and it makes you feel as well as think. If you’re feeling in the need for some diverse hip-hop, check this one out above and support dope music in all its forms.
