Rising lyricist Antonio Breez presents us his debut project titled “The Convocation Of Antonio Breez”. Over the course of the 16 tracks contained in this project, we get to hear the emcee touch on several topical issues and personal narratives. Beyond that he also gives us some brilliantly crafted braggadocio raps to even things out. The beats are carefully selected and don’t fall short of Antonio Breez’s lyrical dexterity and for the most part help accentuate his message.
To promote the project, Antonio Breez also gifts us with a video of the hard hitting “You Ain’t Hot/Exodus”. Hit the play button and get familiar.
The Convocation of Antonio Breez is the culmination of years of hard work and passion from the Boston wordsmith, Antonio Breez. A proper debut album, it touches on a number of topics while bringing the listener into the world of an artist you won’t soon forget.
The up-and-coming spitter spends the 16 tracks on here chronicling every facet of his life, from the shoulder-brushing bars of “Welcome Weekend,” to the late-night hustler raps of “Can’t Sleep,” and the pure technical display of “Wet,” and its well played Redman sample. But his lyrical autobiography goes beyond insight, touching upon both his work ethic and artistic rise.
The majority of the album is handled by producer Kazi Beatz, whose instrumentals range from bouncy, piano-forward R&B (“Successful”) to more modern soundscapes (“My Time”). Elsewhere, Magic On The Beats flips nods to J Dilla (“School Love”). Other contributors include Magic on the Beat, Skinny Manolo, DBrown, QuietKept, and Chris Prythm.
For Breez, it all boils down to putting everything out there for whoever’s willing to listen. And if you like what you hear, be sure to check out the double feature video for two of the album’s highlights, “You Ain’t Hot” and “Exodus.” The slick visuals center on the young rapper’s lyrics as he puts on for his city by repping the Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics. Stylistically, the video goes beyond what Breez is wearing on screen. The first half, “You Ain’t Hot,” which recently debuted on Shade 45, is shot to mimic like you’re watching an old-school rap video on VHS. That is, of course, before it switches to shots of Breez posted up in front of an all-black SUV.
