Wax - Continue...

I've been meaning to lend Wax's latest release an ear since its release back in mid January, but only just now got around to it. I'd heard some singles, I kinda knew what I was getting into and hence I wasn't expecting much.

The tracks felt really commercial. I mean Rosana is featured in the album, but with tracks like Toothbrush in there too it starts seeming a little boring. And then he blows your mind away.

If you're not a fan of reading the last page of the book before you start it, don't click play. Just read on 'til the end of the post for a stream. Otherwise, enjoy.


This is technically the last track on the album and it's a great way to tie things together. There's a lot of negativity going on before this track. More of his drunk stories and some odd choices by the producers, but it's tracks like these that make any negative air worth it. Just good vibes and positive messages
"So every new day that I start off by bitchin', I think of all the dishes in the restaurant kitchen that I used to wash to get a meal, then reevaluate how I feel and it feels good"
He uses his talent to demonstrate that even after a dirty, negative, horrendously witty song, you can still be a musician who genuinely cares about the world. Take that, mainstream radio meatheads.

I'll admit that the first few tracks to this album coupled with the singles I'd already heard lead me to believe that Continue... was a half-assed effort and the only reason it's succeeded on iTunes is purely because it's easy to like an artist with a cool video. And then I was wrong.

What we really have is Wax attempting to innovate and improve his mark. He doesn't always succeed, but he manages to make some amazing sounds. If anything, all the playing around on this album could mean that a future album could be even better.

Sure, my favorite is still Scrublife, but I really do respect this last release. I want it in my collection, and I want to start calling myself a true Wax fan.

If you're still unsure, give the album a listen or three. It's quality rhymes.

  2. I have to be in a certain mood to listen to hip hop, but when I am, this is the kind of stuff I listen to. Spot on. This does not disappoint.
