Soul on Parole

Mobb The God drops a three track EP titled ‘Soul on Parole‘ which is full of dope bars, kick ass beats and a unique and engaging flow that had me hooked from first listen! It’s somewhat dark but not dense and has a really good vibe to it, straying from the traditional dusty boom bap we ge a lot of, and hitting us in the same pocket but from a different angle. This is reality rap, street poetry with all the trimmings – pain, angst, bravado…. all wrapped up in a package that makes the head nod and the brain tick over.

Every word I pen down is real, I don’t fabricate none of the lyrics I pen down, my rhymes are mostly based on the things I see and how I feel” Mobb The God says. “I planned to release Soul On Parole after I came back home a free man from prison last week. The joints were recorded before I was arrested, and each joint illustrates how I feel with my present situation in life, the stress and depression that pushes me to sell my soul for a short way to riches to help me feed my fam, and the negative things I face and feel as an African youth living in the Ghetto, living within an infinite episode of life that’s not televised on the media“.

Devil’s Lullaby‘ is a dark, moody track complete with water-dripping effects that create an audio tapestry reflective of the bars that are penned and delivered with pain and passion. ‘Feast Of Defeat‘ has a more upbeat and enlightened vibe, the softly spoken bars demanding you tune in and listen carefully to the messages being delivered, before ‘Husallah‘ brings a more funky and soulful vibe with vocal effects that accentuate the softly spoken emcee with a powerful pen.

This isn’t your usual dusty, boom bap hip hop, this is really introspective, mature and authentic music designed to be listened to with an open mind and spun a multitude of times. Peep it and let us know what you think!
