Okay, so remember the guy with the really awesome song “Kids Wear Crowns” but we (well, I) couldn’t find a single picture of him? It turns out that there’s finally a face to attach to the music. Does it really matter though? Maybe to you, but it still doesn’t to me if the music connects. Being my introduction to Ciscero as an artist, “Kids Wear Crowns” blessed my ears right on time with such a soulful presence that’s lacking sometimes in this new wave of music. Though his previous release “Na Na Na” with Sugg Savage and GoldLink didn’t sit with me as well as KWC did, I found myself still wanting to hear more from the Maryland MC. His sound and creativity is a selling point, and as I previously mentioned, I’ll always be one to stick around if the music connects. With his EP “Kids Wear Crowns” allegedly “around the corner,” Ciscero has hinted at a Matt McGhee-featured track for some time now and the anticipated collaboration has finally seen the light of day.
Produced by T. Hemingway, the track’s title is pretty obvious in reference to the content, but the feel of the record has a true beauty in its vulnerability. Personally, it has the connection of how “Kids Wear Crowns” felt when I first heard it. You can understand where both Ciscero and Matt McGhee are going with each verse and the chemistry results in a song that may live to be a true standout on the forthcoming EP. There’s a true meaning and a genuine approach that resonates with the listener, separating his sound from what’s popular today. If you haven’t noticed, there happens to be a surging wave of artists in the DMV who are well deserving of recognition in Hip-Hop. Only time will tell, but when that time comes, expect Ciscero to one of those guys to keep an eye on. Don’t sleep on this one.
