FamousMuthafucka is gearing up to release a new project. The effort is coined Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself. It will be a four track EP that has a video component to go along with every selection. As he is a site favorite, he was kind enough to send over the pending offering’s first release. The song is called “Cypher.” It is produced by Famous himself. The production is adequate. It’s got a serious old school Hip-Hop groove to it with eclectic supporting details that come together in a down to earth manner. The content sees Famous spitting for a little over a minute straight. No hook, no breaks, etc. The elongated verse is dope. Famous imparts an unfaltering flow, notable wordplay, and gratifying rhymes. He does a respectable job of reflecting the essence of what a cypher is all about. All in all, it’s a legit number.
