A higher-conscious artist from Buffalo, NY, Genecist shows competence as a rapper, singer and observer. “1 Percent” is a great slow-burner with a ‘90s hip-hop vibe. Over a female soul singer’s chopped and edited vocal run serving as the main instrumental, Genecist reminds listeners “100% of us breathe the same air… and die.” “Wrath” also features interesting musical themes, sampling Asian strings and a huge deep bass. The emcee references kung fu fighting in an impressive rapid-flow, including a hero’s declaration, “I’m on a quest…” “One and All” continues the Kill Bill/Wu Tang Clan allusions, singing in a sultry style with a trap-meets-old-country-western flavor.
