ALBUM REVIEW: Rapper and Producer, Item9 Releases New Album -- "Pisces"

Item9 is a 28 year old, producer and artist from the Pacific North West. This week, he's releasing his first legitimate project entitled "Pisces".

From his fired up flow to the heart pumping beats, this 7 track album hits all the right notes. 

Since joining the Marine Corps in 2014,  Item9 has been growing and perfecting his craft as an artist and individual. The album features sounds with 2 collaborations and a song produced by Belgium producer and Seattle pop singer Laureli.

"We step on this shit, break ya mama back."

Feng Shui featuring Oliver Shawe is the opener, and it really sets the mood. In this self produced project, Item9 mixes his chill hip-hop vibes with smooth pop sounds. Then he dabs in hard hitting lyrics  with some raw bars. The end product is good music that most hip-hop heads can f*ck with. 

"I shoot that shit, and I got hands too. Dark skin like I'm Bantu." 

Another standout for me is the mellow trap vibe on The Vibe ft. Laureli. Item9 shows off his skills as a producer and vocalist. The melodic hook line is infectious, and Seattle based pop singer Laureli throws in some smooth vocals, adding that female sexiness to the track.

"She said take your time; why won't you leave my mind?"

The album is officially out on Feb 12th, so go ahead and pre-save it on Spotify and add it to your chill vibes playlist.
