Review: Verb T & Illinformed- The Man With The Foggy Eyes
Some rappers have the heart and hunger to keep going in the game and with his latest venture The Man With The Foggy Eyes, Verb T proves no exception. Teaming up with producer Illinformed (who has previously worked with Jedi Mind Tricks and Rass Kas), the two have created a nineteen track effort that stands to make big waves in the UK hip hop scene, with a release under the titans of hip hop in the UK, High Focus Records. The first single to be released First Stone has already dropped on YouTube with an accompanying video gathering anticipation for the full release on 24th August.
In contrast to much of the braggadocio of current hip hop, Verb T opts for realness and gives the album both depth and honesty throughout. All delivered in slow, thoughtful bars. Part narration part imagination it proves both reflective and motivational. Equal praise must also go to the album’s producer Illinformed. On every track the beats are beautifully crafted with a range of jazz, blues and funk instrument samples that give a sound which could have come straight from hip hop’s golden age.
Joined by a number of collaborators both veteran and upcoming the final product proves an ensemble of some of the UK’s top talent.
The Man With The Foggy Eyes will be officially released 24.08.15.
