Review: godAWFUL - Beats & Rhymes In The Key of Awful Vol. 1
Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Don’t be fooled by the name. Hamden emcee godAWFUL is anything but, and his EP, Beats & Rhymes In The Key of Awful Vol. 1, is one of the strongest hip-hop releases you’ll find this year. Extremely lyrically adept, godAWFUL has a voice that may vaguely remind people of Slug from Atmosphere, just slightly deeper. On the seven songs on Beats & Rhymes In The Key of Awful Vol. 1 godAWFUL covers an array of topics, from his journey in hip-hop on the lead track “No Superstar,” to the intense storytelling track “Broken Author,” which truly draws the listener in. Beats & Rhymes In The Key of Awful Vol. 1 is one of those rare albums that gets you excited from the first line of the first song and keeps your attention all the way through. godAWFUL is equipped with all the skills, both lyrically and production-wise, as he self-produced the entire album, to be the emcee that people can point to and say “this is CT hip-hop.” More efforts like this one and I don’t think it would be a surprise to see him be the state’s first breakout hip-hop star.
