My review of @SatiliteRok1 's "Rise Of The Underrdogg"

Follow @SatiliteRok1

10 tracks from the get go, Im skeptical cause I'm used to 20 tracks but then I thought no fillers sweet! So I get through as I'm changing brakes on a Ford Taurus, Im listening through my phone and headphones-- my IPOD had issues...

Anyways, people kept coming out asking me questions so I pop out my headphones and play it on the phones speakers, still sounds incredibly polished!!! What also impressed me about the mixtape was that most of the tracks were produced by SatiliteRok & or other in house associates of Hazmat.

The track that stood out the most to me was the led zeppelin sampled "Love Is A Drug" simply just an ingenius way to incorporate such an epic sample! The song's lyrics pull you in as Rok flows-- if you were to compare him to any industry artist hed be up there with B.O.B. & Lupe Fiasco (which Im fan of both).
Later after the second playing as I was fighting rotors off the second vehicle I was working on my girlfriend came out to hold the flashlight for me as it was getting dark. She had asked me if it was either of the two artist's I listed earlier! I chuckled and told her it was the cat I had been talking to online via FB, TWITTER & whatnot.

As far a producer's stand point this mixtape was completely on point, as it completely rides into the brand that Rok's been working on. All the vocals were crisp locked in exactly where they were supposed to be. I didnt hear a sour note by anyone-- I can tell Hazmat and Rok been working on this mixtape. All in all this will be a staple in my playlist for the summer, can't wait for videos to support the tracks!

You can download the whole album yourself right here!
