I hadn’t heard from Side Effect in quite a while, so when I received the announcement that he was releasing a brand new video, I was hyped. This is because Side Effect is one of my favorite types of emcees. He rhymes clearly, so you can understand everything he’s saying, he says things worth hearing and understanding, and he has fantastic skills, but is understated about them. What I mean by this is he doesn’t feel the need to accentuate every punch line the way a lot of current artists do. He treats his punch lines as a natural part of his verses, and if you catch em, you catch em. If you don’t, you have to spin the song again, and “Cyber Bully” is a song worthy of repeat listens.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
