Veli Smallz: Before The Pictures Painted - Album Review


BEFORE THE PICTURES PAINTED BY VELI SMALLZ
If it isn't African, Reggae, Blues, Jazz or Country music, normally, it won't be bumping in my car.  I do listen to hip hop/Rap music at social gatherings, but that's as far as it goes.  When my co-worker handed me a rap album this morning, I took it out of respect, being polite to a friend.  I had all intentions of throwing it into the back seat and no intend of listening, but with the artistic picture on the cover, as a blogger, my curiosity started running wide. I had to find out if the artist is as artistic as the artwork on the cover.  Interestingly, the very first song 'I AM' caught my attention.  The message in this song is more than a rap noise, it is spiritual.  The 3rd and 7th songs also had me bopping my head.  Normally, I do write a track to track review when I listen to a new album, but today, I just want to share my over all experience, when it comes to this beautiful album, with my fans.  From listening to all 13 tracks, I can confidently state that Veli Smallz is as artistic as the picture on the album cover. He's creative.  I need to get him on a track with a Liberian artist, see what he can do on a Afrobeat.
