With a a collection of three anchor singles that showcase amazing facets of Kevin Calhoun‘s abilities with the mic, we get a versatile catalogue of singles that are captivatingly original, all of which give a nod to yesterday and today’s most iconic Hip Hop eras; and you have to hear them to believe them.
Most notable of the three tracks is the 90s-influenced gem “For The World”, which serves up a world of likability factors. With a dangerously catchy female-featured hook and an LL Cool J vocal approach, this song takes on a visceral throwback feeling while completely staying relevant to today’s modern aura of mainstream artists. Kevin‘s flow tight knit, subtle, and convey’s very uplifting and inspirational lyrical content that makes this track more anthemic rather than just another song.
His number “Nerd Confessions” is more of a street heat banger that never wavers from its charisma or passion. With a vocal approach that has a multifaceted Dr. Dre vibe, Kevin demonstrates that when it comes to cranking up the energy in epic proportions, he is extremely effective and lyrically compelling. This is an edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger that is top notch from start to finish.
Then coming to his final number “Shoot Your Shot”, this hypnotic track has another subtle and atmospheric vibe that delivers up a great female-featured hook, dynamic rhyming techniques and an R&B-infused approach that makes this song catchy and next-level. It’s very soothing and has incredibly effective beat structures with melodic chord progressions that make this song an unforgettable listen.
It’s rare that songs with precision on this level grace our platform. No matter what era of Hip Hop/R&B you listen to, Kevin Calhoun will easily become one of your top artists before the year is out.
