Figured It Out
No guns, No Crack, No Hoes ... Motivational, soulful, hardcore rap music ... 'Figured It Out' is an album from VISUAL, a regular every day cat from Chicago. He's dealt with the guns, the drugs, the hoes and the clubs but knows that the world is bigger than that. 'Figured It Out' is about the point in your life where everything becomes clear. It is a trip through the then, the now and the future of this young Chicagoan's life. Conceptually the album is a message of self realization and self empowerment. Production wise Infinite Beats, Deebo and Panik of the Molemen set mood's that allow the artist become one with each song. On songs like 'Everything', the topic goes perfect with the beat that seems to have a boom bap feel to it but at the same time reminds you of 90's west coast rap and still brings modern elements. On anthems like 'Impossible is nothing' and 'BY THE CRIB', Visual brings high energy and on the flip side he slows it down with story raps on 'Dope: my drug story' and 'Loyalty'. Diversity is added with guest appearances by the freestyle legend Juice on 'Blessed' and the Soulful voice of West Restless on 'Dreamer". Lady T and Blanca Rodriguez also add their own touch with guest vocals on 'Beautiful Woman' and 'Relax". On songs like 'Every day thang' and 'Ya'll are los'in", Nalij, Dism and Chances of Community Service represent the correct way. 'Figured It Out' is emotional, motivational, Soulful, hardcore hip hop music from one of Chicago's hardest working artist. By the end of this album you have a better understanding of the artist and the man. This is an album for regular people who don't fit into the exaggerated, watered down, repetitive world of hip hop that exist today DISCOGRAPHY : Matlock - Crazy artist type (tape) 98' Verbal - Prelude to nothing (CDR) 99' Prime - The Cleansing (CDR) 00' Ndvisual - Dirty Ep 00' Ndvisual - Work 03' Record Playas - Sound Tracks for days 03' DJ Vinny Vicious - Lights out (Mixtape) 03' Vyle - Post-Paleontologist 03' Ransak records - Pressure Points 03' DJ Anomaly - Mountains Rise 04' Community Service - The Essence (Mixtape) 04' DJ 730 - hosted by M.
