“Suffering is nothing, no time huffing and puffing/You talk about hell, n*gga I grew up in the oven…”
There isn’t a person on Earth with the ability to convince me 400 Degreez was sub par. As one of my personal favorite LP’s ever recorded, I admire when artists pay homage to the album and with Phil Adé’s newest outing, he does just that. “Something Out Of Nothing” finds the DMV native bobbing and weaving his way through three impressive verses over Juve’s classic “Ha.”
Scratch that. Adé bodies this. Point. Blank. Period. The hook is what it is, but focus more on the bars he strings together throughout. They’re effortless and with each mp3 since last year’s The Letterman (late to the party), I find myself becoming a bigger and bigger supporter. With Phil and Fat Trel, to name a few, currently stacking their building blocks strategically, the future of the nation’s capital’s rap scene appears more promising than a clear Friday night on U Street in the summer. And that’s promising.
Be on the lookout for Adé’s new project, A Different World, set to drop this summer.
