There is a stark difference between artists who have stand the test of time and those who have grown complacent in a over abundant lane. Especially during a pandemic, as me and B Light discussed in my podcast, you start to see the real artist and just the pretenders.
Kony Brooks has never, and will never be a pretender. Or be comfortable in his lane as the incomparable king links with July Quin for Making of A Legend.
Off the bat, you should know what your getting: lyricism the likes of Lloyd Banks and the late Fred Da Godson, but on this project... like as you can here on “Welcome Home” , there’s a different aura with the former Mr. Voiceless Music time around. The hunger is more for the pleasure and not just the masses.
Hence why Apple Music highlights the Aaliyah-sound-esque "On That Time", which is reminiscent of some of Kony’s past bravado singles on a more alternative sound which is welcoming in a heavy trap era.
But for me, it’s always about the storytelling and that’s what I got in “Rebuild”. For me, Kony sat us down, put us all in a circle, and deliver nothing but Jay Z like, In My Lifetime Vol. 1 vibes only he could deliver on.
If you enjoyed Kony’s catalog over the past few years as an artist, then I suggest you put making of a legend at the top of your list. This was a bar only set high enough that a king could reach.
