There are so many great underground hip-hop mixtapes and singles propping up lately that it’s harder to tell what is just one time brilliance and what is truly an artist on the rise. With Tay Devenny’s new track and video “Death to my ego”, he proves why he’s a name that will stick around. Like many of the better tracks on Devenny’s excellent Obulous tape with producer bit1, Devenny’s flow sounds right at home over cloud-rap beats with plenty of orchestral work. Eyeofzion, a formerly featured beaties padawan, provides the gorgeous beat for “Death to my ego” and Devenny steps up to the plate with some of his most engaged verses yet. The visuals are exactly what I expected from the very non-showy Devenny who prefers plenty of shots without his face in them. We’ll definitely be looking out for his upcoming Shrine tape.
