"Round 2"

Tennessee native and TDE rapper, Isaiah Rashad, has released his official debut album The Sun's Tirade early this September. This album was under high anticipation after his last EP dropped called Cilvia Demo in 2014. Cilvia Demo set the tone for this album specifically for lyrical content and musical creativity. Under the pressure from his fans, Rashad was able to drop another industry shifting project. The Sun's Tirade is an album full of true stories and honest situations - blended perfectly with impressive production. One could point out the turmoil of life that Rashad speaks on with Kendrick Lamar in "Wats Wrong", or the pain of missing his grandmother in "Brenda". On the other hand, it is hard to ignore the musical genius in "Stuck in the Mud" featuring SZA, or the fascinating melodies of "Silkk Da Shocka" featuring Syd from The Internet. The production on this album is from a range of different people, but a few heavy hitters who have touched this project are Cam O'bi, MikeWillMadeIt, and Steve Lacy (all produced on albums like Coloring Book, Lemonade & Ego Death). The title, The Sun's Tirade has been said by Isaiah to mean "one long-hot day", inspired by his experience of living on the west coast thus far. This project will easily become one of the best rap albums of the year as it grows on the fans and into the industry. A few of my favorites on the album are "Stuck In The Mud", "Park", "Dressed Like Rappers" & "AA".
