|Mystro's got humor. There's this pic of him pretending to run with two coppers chasing him and it's just chuckle funny. You should see it. Damn, buy the record and chuckle too. And once you're done grinning, listen to the record. Nothing wrong with that either.
|It takes about a minute for the EP to really get going, as the "Instro" builds. Harry Love did the tune, and he did others too, like "Music Mystro". Which again builds slow, as we're welcomed by a rather
long theatrical introduction. But hey, once that's over, once the orchestra warmed its fingers, the boom bap is just massive. Harry put a thick bass underneath the chaotic orchestra sound. And Mystro rides it with braggadocio verses and every aristocat in the audience bobs his head. For more of Harry's
tunes you need to skip to track eight, called "Strong Rhymin'". The title gives away what Mystro is doing, so let us explain what Harry does. The beat is not as warm as the other one, instead it's a little uncomfortable and eerie. Finally
then, for this producer, the "Outstro" revisits the "Instro", but we're not mad.
|We're also not mad at seeing the name Braintax creep up on a couple of tracks. First on "Tellin' You", later on "Free The Walls" and "Don't Drag Me In!". The first does some 'listen cause
I got ish to say' rhymes. And while Mystro drops some serious lines, all the silliness of the rest (and even the hook here), makes it kinda hard to distinguish if that tongue is in that cheek. But it does not appear to be on "Tellin' You". It's firmly stuck on "Free The Walls"
though. There's a little guitar lick here, some howling and Mystro attacking the mic with some uncredited hombre. Finally there's "Don't Drag Me In!" a song that the knowledgeable amongst you know from the Braintax "Biro Funk" record.
And funky this is. Heck it's one of the bestesest moments on here, with rhymes that are again more serious than smirking.
|What else is there? For example "Nutrition". Another braggadocio joint, where he urges us to do the running man. Or as he more eloquently describes it: "it's that new kid you wanted on the block / with that music that truly gets you jogging on the spot".
He later ends the chorus with "don't confuse yourself, cause this ain't food for though / this is food for health: it's nutrition". Ey. The whole thing is produced by Ginger Washington, and arguably not as good as "Awkward Thief".
What doesn't say much, as the latter is super nice, what means the other can be and still is, nice. Nice. The Blufoot produced "Awkward Thief" explains to us what Mystro is doing and why those Bobbies are running after him. All of it again
kinda self explanatory, so let's move on. Move on folks, nothing to see
|You'll get to "Yeah!!" with a RawDog beat and there's again nothing serious, but plenty silly. He talks about the good stuff what you can enjoy though. And another thing to enjoy is a Mystro type of party. With an almost p-funk beat, "My Type Of Party - Remix"
can get the crowd rocking and rolling, while Mystro explains the scenery. It's also balancing the Cheek and Chong or Yin and Yang. Because Mystro is the one and the other.
|Now let's look at that picture again
run, Mystro, run
