In Lansing, Michigan, lives a talented DJ that I had never heard of a few days ago. DJ Cutt-Nice is no beginner in the game.
His Metromix Part 1 mixtape is a pretty good example of a man’s work who fully masters his art.
The introduction introduces you into DJ Cutt’s subtle art. Open your ears and let the notes of the underground mix rock your world.
The second track, Make It Last, will make you enjoy Kye’s talent. Kye will introduce you into a party atmosphere. Dirty details will make you feel the hot atmosphere. Nice instrumentals and good beats and lyrics will constantly please your ears. Drums, violin, keyboards combined with astute lyrics and dope beats give this track a very enjoyable dimension
The most amazing part is certainly DJ Cutt-Nice’s scratching technique while mixing up tracks from talented artists like Rass Kass.
Don’t miss track Nr 3 and 4, because they fully reveal Rass Kass and DJ Cutt-Nice’s talent. Be ready for some raw and pure hip hop. Let DJ Cutt-Nice show you what he can do with his vinyl, because he is a turntable king. Entertaining beats a nice flow delivery from Rass Kass introduce you into a nice ghetto/ gangsta track. Very confident about himself, Rass Kass spits in a very offensive way. High and drunk, he won’t allow you to beat his level of skills. This track is the kind of rap music that I really like because it stays true to roots of real hip hop.
Nas goes on, killing 50 Cent and Mobb Depp lyrically. Nasir Jones is a terrific adversary in a rap battle, because he is a very talented lyricist who knows who to bury his enemies with this words that cut like a scalpel. Very well mixed with some cool scratching sounds, MC Burial fully enlightens Nas and DJ Cutt-Nice’s talent.
Among the tracks I highly recommend to the listeners, you can count Method Man’s Mathmathics, Rass Kass (who is an incredible lyricist), Ludacris’ Georgia and Nas’ Mc Burial.
Foxy Brown’s Come Fly With Me add a reggae note to the record.
Globally, the CD is a combination of amazing emcees and of DJ Cutt-Nice’s great talent. Good instrumentals and beats, high quality lyrics, a gifted DJ fully illuminate this raw rap CD. Any true hip hop lover should definitely add this amazing Cd to his library. I have been a little bit disappointed by the Boom Boom Clap chorus, though.
With Metromix Part 1, DJ Cutt-Nice marries raw Detroit sounds with top emcees’ songs. You will also find Mobb Depp, Snoop, Notorious Big on DJ Cutt-Nice’s remixes.
No hesitation, please! Download Metromix Part 1 here and let DJ Cutt-Nice introduce you into his world.
