From Cali To Wisconsin: Introducing Aboli$h
Aboli$h is a former California native who joined the ranks of the Wisconsin Hip-Hop scene about three years ago. Currently residing in Wausau, he is looking to get his name out there and have his music heard. He has been writing since the age of twelve and draws influence from a good assortment of artists including: Eminem, Twista, and Ice Cube. Just to name a few. He has a strong passion for music and prides himself on making deep meaningful songs. His ultimate goal is to find a successful way to turn music into a lifetime career. Let’s dig into a couple of tracks and see what he has going for him so far.
The production here is on point. It contains a light bass, a few sound effects, and a relaxed vibe. The hook is good as well. The delivery is clear and easy to follow. The lyrics have an inspirational message to them and leave a lasting impression. The verses are solid. Aboli$h has a mid-tempo flow with an intense tone to it. His wordplay is clever and his rhyme are quality. He does an excellent job of conveying the message that he plans to thrive in his rap career, despite what anyone else thinks. Check it as he spits: “Don’t act like you know me. Look I’m not your homie. You don’t like what I spit, all you f–king haters can blow me. But you’ll never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming. Never stop believing in the music it’s the reason, why I’m f–king breathing. The game I’m never leaving. Who the f–k are you to predict the things I’ll be achieving.” Dope lines with a serious declaration behind them. Overall, this song is a banger. It’s cool to see Aboli$h so committed to his craft.
The production here is hot. It features some spooky background vocals, a dense bass line, and a chilling vibe. The hook is fair. The delivery is well executed but a tad on the loud side. It could afford to be taken down just a notch. The lyrics are interesting and deep. The verses are up to standard. The flow is decent but again on the noisy side. The rhymes are creative and satisfactory. Aboli$h does a captivating job of sharing his internal struggles with the listener. In the end, this song is worth a listen or two. It could use a little work but has a fresh concept and sick beat.
**My Two Cents: I liked both of these tracks. I think Aboli$h has a unique element about him. Also, I dig the fact that he makes music with a purpose to it. There is way too much mindless junk polluting the game these days. So it’s always pleasing to run across an artist who is actually about something. If he holds on to his love of music and continues to develop his lyrics, I think Aboli$h will be around for a long while. Get more with the budding emcee via his Reverb Nation page.
