When is the last time you came across a real nigga? Think about it for a minute. Now allow me to introduce you to one that goes by the name of Ron Slyda. My first introduction to Slyda was a couple of years ago when I was co-hosting a local radio show in Miami (Chunky Chickz Radio). My homie Empress put on a talent showcase for local up and coming artist in the area called Miami Renaissance and Slyda was one of the headliners. Problem is this nigga was nowhere to be found halfway through the show. Right before Empress was preparing to wrap the show Slyda comes walking in the door with his entourage and walks directly to the stage. He grabbed the mic and proceeded to apologize to everybody and explain that he JUST bonded out of jail and came straight to the venue still wearing the same shit he got arrested in the night before, then commenced to give one of the better live shows I’ve ever witnessed first hand from an artist period, signed or otherwise. Haz been  fan ever since.

 

The purpose of the Real Nigga Review is to provide awareness for artists that I feel actually deserve it based off of their talent as opposed to their connections or budget. I’m not here to do favors cause honestly I don’t even do this type of shit but when I see a real nigga making moves I feel obligated to help where I can so allow me to present Ron Slyda’s latest project entitled Blue Summer : Recollections of a Poetic Drunk. The title alone should let you know this nigga on some other shit. From the production, to his lyrics and delivery this is one of the most complete sounding albums I’ve heard from an underground artist in quite some time. A few of the tracks that stood out to me are:

Blue Summer – Sets the tone of the album. The type of track you can play in any situation that will give you that top down hair blowing in the wind  type of feeling with dope lyrics to boot.

Focus – Another laid back type of track but his delivery on this one provides a sense of urgency that makes you feel the message he’s trying to get across. He mentioned getting dawged by the blogs but remaining focused and I can’t help but take offense cause truth be told I got the album 2 months ago but it’s never too late to get straight right? lol

Momentum – The Paid in Full sample in the beginning just fits the vibe of this record perfectly. Listen to the lyrics that’s all I’ma say.

M.O.B. – Simple yet infectious hook with a crisp flow/delivery makes this one of my favorites. How could you not love a track chanting fuck that bitch. It’s followed up by what appears to be it’s sister track FH/GM (Fuckin Hoes & Gettin Money) which is almost like a remix but it’s a completely different track. 

Come On – “Sleeping on my stomach cause so many jumpin on my dick”. Yet another simple yet infectious hook with a cold flow and crisp lyrics. Dope sample in the production as well another one of my favorites.

Banging – Hands down my favorite track on the album. Ran it back 12 times before I could continue. Production is perfection, Flow is ferocious, Hook was stuck in my head after the first play and the lyrics stuck to my ribs and had me wishing there was a third verse. This better be the next single. I can see the video every-time I close my eyes and listen to it.

ThoTs  – Flow and delivery matched the vibe of the beat perfectly. Lyrics can get lost in translation if you don’t catch em tho.

Ambitionz of a Slyda – This is the latest single which has a video on YouTube that’s worth the watch. Hook is inspired by Pac’s Ambitionz Az A Ridah. Nice mellow vibe that just sounds like some shit a Poetic Drunk would come up with.

Moving On – Some of the realest lyrics on the album. Short and to the point.

All in all I rate this album an 8 out of 10. Each track seems to flow right into the next even though they each have a vibe of their own. You can tell he took his time to produce a complete body of work and didn’t just throw a collection of random tracks together. He also showed that real niggas can be lyrical too without the overuse of metaphors and candy bards but by simply stating real life shit that people can relate to. Trust me when I say I don’t have shit to gain by saying these things but the nigga did his thang. Make sure you follow him on Twitter and check out the album “Blue Summer : Recollections of a Poetic Drunk” and check out the visuals on his YouTube. You can also catch him performing at Jamfest on Feb. 7th in Miami if you’re in the area. Click here for ticket info.
