Stealf has been busy of late setting up his label De Facto Entertainment ready for some new releases. He has put his album ‘I Am Stealf’ on hold due to production commitments with his new artist Mista Flix who impressed us a few months back with his ‘Conceptualized Deceit’. This is a gear up from that release as we can literally hear how Flix has focussed more and upped his levels. Beats on the EP come from Stealf, Karnage & Kobi Wood, but to be honest Stealf is the only producer here we’ve heard of.
Mista Flix can rap there’s no doubting that, and delivery is tight throughout the EP. He is working on his debut album at the moment but I think it would be nice to see a mixtape or maybe some videos first! De Facto are about ‘real Hip-Hop’ and there’s a massive influx of golden era styles infused within production techniques and approach to recordings. This is underground music at its most original, but I do think the music could benefit from being a bit more ‘outside the box’ in the future. This is music that actually says something. Looking forward to more music soon.
