Hip hop artist Xero has released has recently released his EP titled Xero Cap. It has grabbed the attentions of music critics and fans. All praised to his hard work that resulted in such a professional set of tracks.
First of all let’s know a little bit about this talented artist. Xero is a hip-hop/R&B artist originally from Detroit, MI and is currently based in Charlotte, NC. He has been in love with music since his childhood. 2 Pac Shakur, Jay Z, Biggie Smalls, Zedd, SZA, Lyrica Anderson, Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, and King Foxx were the source of inspiration for him. But he never come into making music himself until he came across TLC’s Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes.
Now coming back to the EP. It’s a 6 track EP with each track having all the ingredients of a professionally made track. In this EP title “Xero Cap” “CAP” stands for “Consistently Apply Pressure”, a philosophy that Xero lives by.
Overall the EP creates an ever lasting experience. This dramatic piece creates an intense, rhythmic, driving, angular sound that is quite contemporary;. The rich and resonant brass and the crisp and exact percussion dominate the scene throughout, as the main theme is somewhat developed. This composition would make a good concert opener. One can really chill out listening to this EP.
The song that impressed us so much is “The Money Calling”. The bass and electric guitar are smooth and fitting throughout this track. the whole arrangements complement each other and work really well with lyrics and theme.
Overall the EP is nothing but success due to it’s freshness of sound, absence of musical clichés, colorful work, use of sonorous pedal-points, the crisp and intense combination of all this leads to a warm, mellow four-part horn chorale, a tender, expressive melody by Xero.
He has also released the music video of this first single “Monster” from the EP.
