ViciousTBN “eats these raps with chopsticks,”––his words, according to the single “Chopsticks.” The Virginia-based artist has a lot of energy at the mic. His brash voice is made brasher when vocals are doubled on all productions. “Grind All Night” is very good, with a technically complicated backbeat. “I Got It” is a standout cypher with verses by TBN mates Don Tober, Day Da Don, Qeynote. The songs feature melancholy instrumentals, almost reminiscent of the violin score from Schindler’s List. The sound itself seems a bit dated––not up to the same level and formulas of current trap music. We don’t totally wish to make an example out of ViciousTBN, but Instagram and SoundCloud can only take you so far. Please get a real website.
