Cyclops Channels Life in "Rap Scott Summers" / by Randy Ortiz

Cyclops is one of the most lyrically honest emcees I've heard and he has a new project out by the name 'Rap Scott Summers' produced entirely by Tokyo Cigar (Win!), it continues his soul searching clashing with lifes up and downs while maintaining what it takes to be labeled a great album. I am glad that more people are paying attention to Cyclops now, the album is hosted by DJ Jay Skillz and sponsored by Rock the Dub, Definition DJ's and Y Not My Dream so you know this isn't an album to pass on. Relating to Cyclops rhymes is easy because we all have these thoughts of grandeur and times of failure, certain songs like 'Exhaust, Identify, Going Nowhere Fast' and 'Fascination' show that this emcee is grounded and well aware of lifes issues while dealing with. Tokyo Cigar as usual delivers production on par with the best of them, I think he even channeled some Rza 'Liquid Swords' power in the banging track "Say Your Prayers"!All some people need is a platform and if given the right opportunity you will see them shine brighter than they ever have, that is exactly what went on in this album. Another piece that I am proud to have posted and have you all check it out, it deserves to get a through listen because it sounds fantastic. Peace to Tokyo for creating another crazy project and Cyclops for forever gaining ground in his craft. Yes... this is Hip-Hop.
