When Rittz and Seven linked up to begin work on Last Call, the Atlantean’s direction included descriptions like “80’s vibe,” “Synth-heavy,” and “Something like Pink Floyd.”
For an emcee so pure to the roots of hip-hop, those adventurous descriptions are exciting, and perhaps best exemplified on the albums first release, “Indestructible.”
Hand picked by Rittz to be the first look into the album, “Indestructible” sets the tone for Last Call with a ornate backdrop from Seven filled with synths, ebbs-and-flows, and even a chorus that truly is Pink Floyd-esque.
Though the production towers over the listener, Rittz, however, remains unfazed. He attacks the production with his signature spry flow, dishing bars that are both emotional and honest but never sacrificing strength and power.
If this is what we can expect on Last Call, September 29th can’t come soon enough.
