Virginia-based rap artist LaQuinn is alternately compelling, clever and frustrating. On the sometimes mesmerizing “Pink,” the artist skillfully varies the dynamics of his flow, driving his voice to climb and dip in the right spots. We only wish he were more consistently mixed––he’s often muffled and we’re left straining to hear his words (though we did make out his rhyming of guacamole with stromboli and cannoli. Tasty!) “Vizions” is an eerie, sinuous jam. We can see “Brothers Keeper” getting a crowd waving as he rides a classical/operatic sample to deliver urgent street wisdom, advising his bro to “grow up.” Love that elastic, Godzilla-sized bass, too! We urge this artist to up his production.
