“Crooked tongue straight talk, we don’t speak the same, same thoughts.” // Deal The Villain – ‘Crooked Tongues’ [Beards, Beats & Kicks]
Having earlier this year and last released a succession of singles / visuals, New Jersey lyricist Deal The Villain finally unveils his latest studio extended play [EP] titled ‘Beards, Beats & Kicks’ which is a trinity of subjects that combine to form a small part of his personal identity. 9 tracks deep, this project is 100% unadulterated Hip-Hop music, if your a fan of pure lyricism, raw production, and real life subject matter, this EP seamlessly showcases them all top to bottom. From his perspective, the NJ MC covers a multitude of experiences, anecdotes and as well as the “title” he addresses a full spectrum of topics from Death, Narcotics, Relationships, Hip-Hop, and Politics.
‘Beards, Beats & Kicks’ also plays host to an unbelievable soundscape which includes beats by Knxwledge, Flying Lotus, S1ncere, Deal The Villain, plus executive production duties handled by Michael Cadigan, Lyriq2Go and Myk Dyaleks. When you see names like that you should automatically know what to expect before even listening to a single drum sequence. In his own words, Deal speaks on the project: “This EP is a gourmet tasting menu of things to come, an introduction to the evolution of DTV and the universe I inhabit.”
