Review by: Justyn Brodsky
With a strong lyrical flow and dynamic rhyming techniques, we get a powerfully versatile listening experience from LA-based rapper Ozi‘s Louder Than Words EP.
And I believe that should be the first honorable mention about this record – the versatility. Each beat delivers up something different but has that tendency to really explore the facets of classic genres including Jazz, R&B and the eclectic nature of each track. All which gives Ozi the breathing room to show off different angles of his skills behind the mic and his ability to put a signature touch on every song. That in and of itself is next-level all on its own.
Louder Than Words also passes the torch between subtle feel-good chill tracks and the visceral energy of straight up bangers. Ozi diligently adds his craft to what is most appropriate and what is also most effective. And when listening to these tracks, you can tell he knows the distinction perfectly. He gathers the vibe and aura of each beat structure and utilizes a technique that makes each song a well dressed outfit; and realizes that sometimes it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. And it reflects his artistic merit beautifully.
Ozi displays an array of likability factors and never fails to keep you focused and on your feet. And if you’re sitting, it’ll be at the edge of your seat. The facets of Louder Than Words is really showcased by the overall presence that Ozi gives each song as a whole. Otherwise – it’s just a beat. But with Ozi at the forefront of these beats, they become anthems. And these actions definitely speak – louder than words.
