This is the team that never was. Raven: The Cartelian Sergeant & Myk Reid: The Second Lieutenant. Amidst this viral flood of “swagger”, confusing hi-hats, false characters and self-indulgence, Searching For Soulz is hip hop purity. Raw, honest and lyrical.
Since the days of being told off by Raven’s mum for swearing too much, this team has come a long way. This is grown-man rap. Raven needs little introduction to fans of this art form. After his successful sophomore album Ravenous 20Ten and a short-term hiatus for the arrival of his first born The Crate Cartel main-stay returns with the humanistic essence that made him one of Australia’s most acclaimed lyricists at the forefront of this project.
Only the finest emcee’s get to fly the Hungry Human flag and Myk Reid is no exception to this rule. Myk emerged publicly in 2011 with the release of his debut EP Rise Of The Foot Soldier catching the attention of rap aficionado’s nationally.
With Myk being a long-time cohort of Raven, this EP happening was just a matter of time. Production is handled by Geko, Must, Wik, Skwid Fingaz and Sideshow. Raven is also back on the boards for the first time in 4 years. Fellow Lost Soulz original Budsa graces the only guest spot with his no bullshit style on the future anthem Hoods Up.
