No matter what state you go to, there is always one artist that”hasn’t gotten their shine yet.” No matter what year of Hip Hop you research, there are two distinctive brackets that particular artist go in to. The first bracket it the artists that were on the cusp of doing something amazing, and everyone knew it, but was never was able to turn the corner (AZ, G Dep, Rass Kass, Field Mob). The second bracket contains artists that were flat out dope. They were better than 90 percent of the music being heard, but never got their moment in the Sun (Alley Boy, Cuban Link, Twisted Black, Bad Azz, Sick Jacken (of Psycho Realm). An artist who is gradually getting their moment in the Sun, and the chance to turn the corner is Killa Kyleon. If you’ve had an ear to the street for the Texas underground music scene, he’s been around for a minute. He’s not only been around, but has gotten on tracks with artist who have became stars and had the best verse on the song (Wiz Khalifa, Currency, Mike Jones, Paul Wall). He got in the studio with Nessacary (who is a beast in her own right) and put together a very solid project in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Don’t expect a bunch of stunting and getting to the money songs with this team. You get a few songs on that vibe (“Watching Me”, “Riding”), but it’s all business after that. “Since you niggaz bumping, I ain’t heard a better rapper yet. Still the hottest, I ain’t taking off my sweater yet. Besides the man in the mirror, I never met a threat. You a rookie, I’m a vet, verified without a check”, says a aggravated Killa Kyleon on “Intro”. Nessacary keeps up with Killa bar for bar on “Intro” saying “Opitical illusion, hoes ain’t really seeing me. Even with some Lasik, they ain’t really seeing me. Third times the charm bitch, but I don’t need your trilogy.” The duo has a pretty good chemistry throughout the album and showcases it on songs like “Talk is Cheap”, “Drugs”, and the aforementioned “Intro”. The cool thing about this project to me is that it seems as if they came into the studio and said “let’s make some dope shit”, instead of “let’s make some hits”. And, if “let’s make some dope shit” was their mind state, they succeeded.
