Andy Mineo
Never Land EP



Artist Info: Discography
Genre(s): Hip Hop / Rap
Album length: 7 tracks: 30 minutes, 32 seconds
Street Date: January 28, 2014


2013 was a great year for rap music and one of the biggest components of that awesome year was Heroes For Sale by Andy Mineo. Apparently not being one to take time off, Andy has dropped a small EP titled Never Land to keep his impatient fans satisfied. The title track starts off the short sampling, and we get exactly what we got on Andy's previous album: blunt rapping focused on Christ laid over some nice techno-flavored beats. Singer Marz lends some nice backdrop on this track. The EP is scattered with other artists lending a helping hand, like Marty from Social Club on the reggae infused "Paisano's Wylin" and Dimitri McDowell in "All We Got," which focuses on knowing the importance of God's love. All aforementioned songs are solid and worthy to be played by any rap head.

Some other tracks have nothing but pure roar in the style; think ferocious spitting lyrics laid on top of some really hot beats. "You Can't Stop Me" screams the message of being unstoppable when we're doing God's will, and "Death Of Me" emphasizes the idea of staying strong for Christ. The cherry on top would have to be "Paganini," where KB and Canon help Andy to make the epitome of a banging rap tune; ultra-quick spitting lyrics blended with hot record-scratching production keep all rap fans' heads nodding. All in all, this is a good EP, but it is still just an EP. You're only going to get seven tracks to enjoy, but they're mostly good tunes to add to your rap collection nonetheless.
