You don’t need me to tell you of the sorry state of popular Hip Hip (with or without Kendrick Lamar’s antics). Fret not, there are still rappers out there conscious enough to release music that’s a little bit…er…better. Enter Florida native, Anonymuz with Ascencion X, his 5th mixtape, and it is a strong bunch of songs to say the least. Usually you never really know what you will get with a mixtape. They’re often end up as horribly unfocused, trash cans of previously discarded instrumentals that weren’t produced or composed very well in the first place. With Ascension X you’ll find little of that…

This mixtape is surprisingly easy on the ears, and at first listen it’s easy to hear Anonymuz’s radio friendly aspirations. Cuts like ‘The Song That Never Was’ could easily find itself on heavy rotation on a multitude of pop radio stations (and a Game of Thrones reference always helps marketability). ‘Relena X’ is sure to catch younger ears with it’s Gundam Wing sample and does well to showcase Anonymuz’s lyrical ability. There is a distinct upside to the potential Anonymuz has and the fan-base he can attain through his hyper-modern cadence and flow. If this youngster can stand to sit down and write a more focused and solidly constructed album, there is no doubt he will be a force to be reckoned with. There is wit and charm in this mixtape, and a dash of raw emotion that can fuel more fiery songs in the future. Fans of Immortal Technique and DoomTree have something to latch on to here.
