Prolific beat boxing extraordinaire Skrip has been in the hip hop music scene for over a decade now, and Renegades Never Die is his latest release. The Chicago native is dropping this album courtesy of Infiltrate Music and is certain to garner some attention with this release. The first two tracks "iDOLS" and "Go On" feature some stellar production and are sure to make hip hop fans nod their heads. The next set of tracks includes "Este Fuego," (meaning "this fire") and "When The Beat Drop" - nice dance tracks that are made to be blasted in clubs everywhere. At this point, there is nothing skip-worthy or bad, but there's also nothing overly attention grabbing either.
The best tracks on Renegades Never Die are found toward the latter half of the album. "A Better Way" is a great story-telling track about lustful failures in life, and Eden Myrrh's chorus is on point. Up next is "Memorandum," featuring Social Club, which is full of hot beats and tight spit verses, while "LWYMMD" showcases Skrip's spitting potential nicely. These are the only tracks I couldn't help going back to and listening to over and over again.
On the negative side, Skrip tends to be unique, which can be hard to balance. Sometimes his creativity isn't something I enjoy hearing, with the verses of "Right Now" and the chorus in "Heir In The Air" as good examples of that. However, uniqueness can also turn out to be something amazing if you find that perfect balance. As said, there's not much that's not good here; they're just not necessarily stellar songs, either.
If you're into hip hop, you may want to give this Skrip's Renegades Never Die a listen, but if you pass, you are not missing out on too much either.- Review date: 2/23/15, written by Kevin Hoskins of Jesusfreakhideout.com
