One of the aspects of hip-hop (especially southern hip-hop) that doesn’t seem to get explored nearly as much as it should is the concept album. It takes a lot to step outside of your comfort zone, I do admit, but it also allows you a chance to explore realms you may not even know you were capable of thriving within.
Enter Ciggy Burns (bka EVOLVE1981), and his latest magnum-opus, The Slow Burn. It’s not that EVOLVE didn’t already spit dope raps, but Ciggy Burns allows him the opportunity to be brutally honest with the bars. A chance to step into those human depths some of us may fear or not understand, and grow the poetry out that much more. This is hella dope. Keep it coming!
