One thing that’s become clear over the past few years of music from Cleveland rappers Michael Art and NicX is that above all else they are consistent and getting better. Sure, their music isn’t filled with huge production, dynamics or call to arm choruses but they manage to focus on tight lyricism which is a good thing because they only keep getting sharper. On ‘Whoa’, Michael Art and NicX do the tag-team routine trading 8-bars which suits both rappers quite well. The talent is clearly all there in both of these rappers, so I hope that they keep on taking bigger risks and start making some big tracks. For now, ‘Whoa’ is a pretty solid listen with all the potential a rapper needs to break out.
