With an insatiable knack for witty rhyming schemes, blasts of party flavors and putting out production value that is perfect for today’s Hip Hop realm, Country C proves that he’s not messing around in his newest release Staging Lanes CC.
Hosted by industry heavyweight DJ Whoo Kid, this record presents us with a modern Hip Hop onslaught of swag rhythms and track bangers that is perfect for today’s hottest radio stations and club hotspots. But at the same time, can still maintain to fit in with records that go from the street to your stereo as well as the underground circuit.
One of the key validations to Staging Lanes CC is the consistency of the album. It doesn’t veer from its direction and really puts Country C at the forefront in each track to showcase his versatile lyrical techniques and vocal charisma. It isn’t overly-doused with feature artists drowning him out and we get several laid back moments of CC‘s craft as well as a sensation of hype that keeps us on our toes.
And that’s the second thing to point out – this album keeps you on your toes. CC comes out swinging from the very first track and always manages to keep his momentum. There are no senses of struggle or settling when it comes to these tracks, and even paying attention to the post production you can tell each hook and measure has been gone over with a fine tooth comb. There’s beats that have ambience and atmospheric textures, and others that are straight up and in-your-face with its warranted energy. And both of these approaches resonate perfectly as the album plays out, and they never try to outdo each other.
Staging Lanes CC is definitely an album we could hear on HOT 97 here in NYC, and is almost tragic that we currently don’t. But judging from the direction that CC is going with the growth of his fan base and critical acclaim with each release, it’s just a matter of time before he takes his place alongside the game’s major players and makes his way to the top.
