Consistency is paramount in establishing yourself as an artist and Ohio emcee Armond has been as consistent as they come. We’ve been following him since he dropped his ground breaking album Ketchup, now he’s back with Ketchup Too, the creatively phenomenal 25 track sequel which picks up right where its predecessor left off, delivering top quality insightful lyrics for your mental.
Armond is taking Christian Rap to new heights and there is no shortage to this guy’s conceptual creativity. Everything from his beat selection to his song concepts and lyrics defies what we currently are exposed to. His ability to deliver the gospel without preaching to you is unparallel. One of my favorite tracks would have to be the powerful Questions and Answers where Armond drops visual lyrics like
[quote] “Is he even pleased with how I handled all these issues/I think of that day when Scooter handed me his pistol/Had the opportunity to kill a man/I said nah/ I wonder is he judged me as we sped off/And now he’s in jail and I’m in prison/We both behind bars but mine is mental”[/quote]
Definitely dope! The album features a slew of other dope track to include a few previously released tracks and a few exemplary special features. The only turn off was the overuse of scratches. I’m all for saluting the DJ, but host O Sharp went a little stir crazy with the turntables ha-ha. But that’s small potatoes. There’s still a plethora of outstanding music for you to enjoy.
In short, Ketchup Too is an absolute “must have” for your music library. The time and effort placed into this project is evident and the verbals will keep you rewinding track after eclectic track. So check it out here, download it and most importantly, enjoy!
