Corey Morris is a charismatic artist who shows he can be an emcee with deep, compelling lyrical content. We hear a Kendrick Lamar vibe on “Star Talk” which contrasts a choir of heavenly voices with the intensity of his own street-bound flow and a ‘70s spy flick vibe. Meanwhile, we hear ‘90s hip-hop in the mournful “Vinyl” where Morris’ playful pronunciations are aligned with backup voices that are nicely timed to stay out of his way. Finally, “Night Raps” has that 3 a.m. feel where the artist seems to rap over a radio softly playing classic soul (Temptations?). We dig this artist’s rhymes (“She was thinking vows; I was thinking consonants.”) and urge him to take the production of his beats to a higher level.
