Rob Jay – “Do You Believe In The Rap Phenomenon?”

By Beware / 02.07.11

The main reason Rob Jay’s music gets posted is because we can count on it. Despite not having an outlandish personality or high-terrain flow, this H-Town MC always narrates his songs with so much detail, listening is similar to taking in a book-on-tape, as you’re always wondering what’s around the next set of bars. The first drop from his upcoming Rap Phenomenon mixtape is no different.

Eerier than that one Great Lake, “Do You Believe In The Rap Phenomenon?” creeps through the fog with just enough enlightening one-liners and heavy metaphors to compliment producer Jettimasstyr’s roofie-inducing boom-bap backdrop. The sample-heavy beat’s mean, murky and sounds like it could score Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.” Or, better yet, it’s something your favorite rapper would love to have a tracked-out version of.

Hopefully, these two Houston minds can continue to keep us intrigued.
