Raz Simone – Cognitive Dissonance

Artists and fans alike always seem to gripe about the torch not being passed once a artist blows up from their city. Unless you have been secluded these past few years then you know Macklemore has once again brought prominence to the city with his music. While it is not any artists responsibility to pass the torch the question comes in as who is next? Until it happens it is all a guess but Raz Simone is a name in play. Not that Raz’s talent isn’t up to par but most people were probably somewhat thrown off when he announced his partner ship with Lyor Cohen. Nonetheless everything seems to be working so far as Raz releases his second solo project “Cognitive Dissonance”. Videos galore and a tour on the horizon show the small steps are steadily peaking. All the work from Razpy to Raz show nothing was overnight. This project will be a special point in the timeline of Raz the artist. A lot of people rap but with nothing behind it which makes a lot of music disposable. Raz’s strongest trait on this project is his ability to keep soul in everything.  No matter the subject he intertwines you first person as he speaks you feel. Looking forward to the future of Raz Simone.
