Let it be known: Rick Gonzalez is carrying out an Inquisition of the whack in Hip-Hop and he will spare no clown. Where you see brutality, the Bushwick emcee and actor is simply out to get a rep on his new single, Never Left. The ease and comfort in his deliberate flow makes him sound nicer than he lets on. And correct me if I’m wrong: after you reconsider the spliced strings by producer Dan Freeman, you wouldn’t be mad at all if an unofficial, fan made video with the single edited into The Matrix* somehow, became the official one. While I wait for one to pop up on Youtube, you can look forward to more music from Mr. Gonzalez on May 13, with his new project, Between The Stars.
*Go ahead and watch it on MUTE while Never Left plays.
