Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky
Since emerging onto the scene last year in 2019, ËIŸ at 20 years old has been more active and motivated than most music veterans with the amount of content he has successfully put out, which includes multiple singles that have garnered him an insatiable buzz. Now, in May 2020 with the release of his newest banger “ŸEN”, the Indianapolis-based artist continues to hit the ground running; and by the looks of it, has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. And this song is definitely proof.
If you’re gonna ride with ËIŸ, you better mean what you say. On top of being an artist, ËIŸ is also a political scientist and has a passion for history and current events. “ŸEN” is a track that totally keeps it real and really reels you in with its melodically catchy and powerful chorus. His mid-ranged vocal approach fits like a glove with the subtle and groovy beat structure and really encapsulates his craft in a way that gets you to understand him. His clever lyrical punchlines are not only multifaceted but also versatile, which really showcases different angles to ËIŸ‘s lyrical ability as well as vocal projection between both the verses and chorus.
The production value is clever, but not overly theatrical or experimental. The layers of the ambient beat gives a solid nod to 90s and early 2000s Hip Hop with a vibe similar to legends like Tupac, but also brings something completely fresh to the table that is modern and mainstream-worthy; all the while, still perfectly accessible to the underground world of Hip Hop as well – where all of the greats we’ve come to know have made their rounds to this day. “ŸEN” is a track you’ll find yourself coming back to time and time again, and will also entice you to check into his back catalogue as well as keep up with his future releases. Which we highly recommend you to do. You’ll definitely be missing out otherwise. Just give this track a spin – you’ll be thanking us later.
