LP: Chris Villa – 7 Headed Dragon: Sounds of Destruction

This tape was dropped a few months ago, but somehow I never got word of it until later, and I figure that now is as good of a time as ever to post it so here you go.  In spring of 2012, Chris dropped his debut tape Pillage Vatican City which despite being an amazing debut, was slept on by almost every respectable rap-listener for no good reason at all.  7 Headed Dragon is his followup to that tape, and his aesthetic seems to have only gotten darker since then.  This time around, Chris uses less beats from one of our favorite producers, Hanz, and more of his own early Triple 6 Mafia-influenced beats and it works just as well.  Chris laces his stark and mysterious sounding beats with lots of lyrics driven by spite and political sentiments, and vividly brings you into his own collapsing world.  Stream two of my favorite tracks below, and the whole thing after the jump.
