With an insatiable knack for witty rhyming schemes, blasts of party flavors and putting out production value that is perfect for today’s Hip Hop realm, Country C proves that he’s not messing around in his newest release Staging Lanes CC. Hosted by industry heavyweight DJ Whoo Kid, this record presents us with a modern Hip Hop onslaught of swag rhythms and track bangers that is perfect for today’s hottest radio stations and club hotspots. But at the same time, can still maintain to fit in with records that go from the street to your stereo as well as the underground circuit. One of the key validations to Staging Lanes CC is the consistency of the album. It doesn’t veer from its direction and really puts Country C at the forefront in each track to showcase his versatile lyrical techniques and vocal charisma. It isn’t overly-doused with feature artists drowning him out and we get several laid back moments of CC‘s craft as well as a sensation of hype that keeps us on our toes. And that’s the second thing to point out – this album keeps you on your toes. CC comes out swinging from the very first track and always manages to keep his momentum. There are no senses of struggle or settling when it comes to these tracks, and even paying attention to the post production you can tell each hook and measure has been gone over with a fine tooth comb. There’s beats that have ambience and atmospheric textures, and others that are straight up and in-your-face with its warranted energy. And both of these approaches resonate perfectly as the album plays out, and they never try to outdo each other. Staging Lanes CC is definitely an album we could hear on HOT 97 here in NYC, and is almost tragic that we currently don’t. But judging from the direction that CC is going with the growth of his fan base and critical acclaim with each release, it’s just a matter of time before he takes his place alongside the game’s major players and makes his way to the top.

Reck Yosiah is a serious artist who studies other serious artists such as J. Cole, Drake, Tank, and Miguel. His respect for these artists goes beyond the music and delves into their ability to stand apart and alone in a world of sameness. This observation and inspiration by these artists play well with his name which translates into “Take heed of the finer things in life.” Reck’s love for and drive to make music comes from the realization that with music, he has a platform from which to reach out and help others, as well as himself. Believing music to be therapeutic and being able to connect his thoughts and passions to those of others is an unbelievable experience for him. “Nostalgia” Reck’s upcoming debut full-length project is quite special for him as a benchmark in creativity in his young career. A self-proclaimed “90s Baby” he feels his music presents a special vibe that other 90’s kids understand and looks to incorporate the sound into his new album. After a natural progression of “Thinker” “Knower” and “Doer” the stages of life, Reck’s evolution as a songwriter has been a path that drives him to reflect his real self in his music and shows, he feels, that as he grew as a man, his taste in music expanded exponentially in stride with his personal growth.
