ReadyRockDee – “Flow God 4” (EP Review)
This is the 4th EP from Bridgeport, Connecticut emcee ReadyRockDee. Coming up as a founding member of the group Rowdy City, he would branch solo last year by releasing 3 solo EPs & a collab album with a New York spitter by the name of Teezy Money. But to kick off his 2021, he’s cooked up a 4th installment of his Flow God series.
The opener “Block Pride” talks about having respect being put on his name over a boom bap beat with some Godzilla-like horns whereas the next song “Boom Shakalaka” with RJ Payne finds the 2 talking about leveling up their pen-game over a trap instrumental with some solemn bells.
The track “Best Dope on the Street” with Rick Hyde sees the 2 comparing to their music to drugs over a ghoulish beat while the song “Project Baby” with Sy da Ari Kid finds the 2 of course detailing what it was like being raised in the gutter over an instrumental kin to The Heatmakerz.
The penultimate track “Higher” with Mickey Factz sees the 2 getting on the motivational end over a heavenly beat & then the closer “Real as it Gets” talks about being true to yourself over an ataractic instrumental.
In comparison to the previous 3 installments of the Flow God series, I think this new one is the best of them all. ReadyRockDee’s lyricism has improved (not to say it wasn’t dope before), the features are on point for the most part & the production is some of the best he’s ever jumped on top of.
