3. Lyrical Prowess: The Last Missionary by Stephen the Levite


Buy on iTunes or AmazonMP3

The Levite has always been one of my favorite artists to listen to. I enjoy hearing him experiment with new ways to spit truth. There is plenty of that to be had in The Last Missionary. The opening track “The First Missionary” is a dizzying display of lyrical mastery that sets the tone. “Reign and Rebellion” has some of the most creative internal rhyme schemes I’ve ever heard in hip hop. And “Beauty & The Beast” is a clever metaphorical flip of a classic story. Stephen the Levite should be held in high regard for always pushing the lyrical envelope.
