MC/Producer Lushlife’s latest full length project Ritualize sees the mc exploring a whole new soundscape while he focuses on what he does best. The 12 track project is carefully crafted by Philly production team called CSLSX. In the guest department he brings back his usual collaborator Ariel Pink and some pretty interesting ones like Killer Mike, Freeway, RJD2 and Deniro Farrar.
I must add, the result is pure dope as expected from start to finish. The lush off kilter soundscapes, sharp lyricism with a personal touch and of course the purpose driven features all add to Ritualize’s listening splendor.
Hit the play button, get familiar and cop Lushlife’s Ritualize right away.
“After three years in the making, it’s kind of surreal to have the record out in the world today. While I loved releasing singles over the past few months, Ritualize is very much an album experience, and I’m more hyped than ever for you to finally listen to the record front-to-back“
