Copyright© 2007 by Isabelle Esling All Rights Reserved *Edga Da Messiah/ Amerikkka's Most Illest CD review Published September 15th, 2007 in Hip Hop Global rating of the product: 4.75 stars With his dark colored vocal chords, the original concepts the man carries in his music, the choice and astute combination of his instrumentals, his witty rhymes, Edga Da Messiah is truly the new raising hip hop star fallen from the sky. His innovative sound technique, made of a dark bass lines and a raspy, almighty voice echoed from the universe will allow you to discover an outstanding talent. His gritty voice might remind some of you of rap genius Ice T. However, Edga's original style resembles nothing else you ever heard yet. Birth Of God is the genesis of the CD: based on dark piano sounds, synthesizers and interrupted scratches sounds, a short vocal introduction of the artist will generate his creative big bang. Catchy drum beats symbolize the universe at work. We Gotz It is started by Edga who leads the scene with a confident empire builder spirit. Electric guitars will create a specific atmosphere in which Edga is taking over with ease and word cleverness. Pillage is constructed on dark instrumental tones, leaving the listener in a icy-chilly atmosphere during which edga has some insightful comments to offer about the commercial crap some artists are trying to sell. Hip hop purist with a good sense of humor, an evident knowledge of a right use of his words, Edga is telling the truth with no remorse. Even his filthy songs do carry a scary element. Edga gets as dark as he can get during a nasty strip tease show, making the listener feel the tension on a rhythmic drum beats base. Angel is a complex song built on various instrumentals, combining light and serious elements. The soft vocals chant love, while Edga's lyrics praise the woman of his life. However, the song also contains some creepy elements that are suggested by intermittent flute notes: you can feel the anguish and the confusion despite the true feelings coming from Edga's heart. In Godfather's, Edga elevates his public on the highest level. The mic explodes in front of the powerful bombs Edga drops one after the other, in total harmony with a rhythmic drum beat play. Elevate your mind and catch the words from a wordsmith's mouth. Dark Night In Hell is a journey into a nightmarish world. Welcome into a twisted mind's creepy thoughts. Edga's voice seems duplicated, coming from nowhere. It resonates in the darkness of humanity's night. Shotz is truly a masterpiece. With the same mysterious spirit, a well mastered sound technique, a beautiful instrumental background, a great sense of rhythm, Edga dominates the scene. Edga Da Messiah Kayci is hip hop's new revelation. Amerikka's Most Illest is a CD that is definitely worth your interest. More info about Edga Da Messiah can be found here.

You will be able to know more about the brilliant artist by reading this interview. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did:) 1. How did you get started in the rap game? A: I started writing poety first and then learned how to match it to beats later. My man Piankhi and I used to perform in rhyme battles in high school. 2. How did you come up with the nickname Edga Tha Messiah Kayci? A: Edgar Cayce is the best known sleeping prophet known to 21st century mankind. The Messiah simply means "The Anointed One." I read alot of fiction and Mystical material which translates to my music. My man One 9 from Black Entertainment Television gave me the name when we were chilling at his house while talking about great prophets. 3. What is your recipe for such a subtle voice and sound technique emerging from your CD? A: I wanted a sound that would stand out above all the other Rappers CD's that are out now. The "AMI" LP is basically a throw back CD which was intended to remind many that Hip Hop is not dead only lying dormant for Tha Messiah to wake the world up. 4.
