Lyriciss is certainly keeping busy. Just two months ago, he released the first of his four scheduled EPs from “The Balance” series, Respect, on which the energetic New Carrollton, Md., MC assessed his place among his rap peers and chastised facades—-immature dudes, materialistic women, etc.
Released today, The Balance EP: Money finds Lyriciss discussing all things monetary: the pursuit of cash, need for financial stability, and dangers of street life. “Obama got elected, I thought we came up/Then I watch the news and still see the same stuff,” Lyriciss rhymes on the exceptional “Get It and Go,” with its head-nodding drum kick and prominent flute loop.
DJ Booth has the EP here. Lyriciss’ next EP, Heart, is scheduled to drop soon.
