LYFE SUPPORT EP – MC LYFE
My artistic friends find balance over time and that’s what Lyfe has here: he balances the chill down-to-earthness that has defined his work with the high level talent of his own growth, guests and production.
Team Baker, Notiz Yong, Audio King and Asend Beats come along for this new EP Lyfe Support, a sample and relatable I.E. situation filled record of boom-bap and double-time songs from one half of the fabled Herbalistics.
Lyfe’s lyrics now reflect that of one in more adult situations of child-rearing and life-partnering; MC Lyfe is like Dennis the Menace became John Updike except stony and Latino.
I'm understating it but as a fan of this type of work, I appreciate his consistency and that he delivers the kind of content that he does without chafing against it. I like his choice of solid but not overly flashy beats and guest-rappers. I appreciate and relate to the milieu he paints because it is similar to my own, I suspect I'm not the only one.
The video and studio work on this record are top-shelf, don’t sleep on the evolution of Lyfe.
