Optimistic Gangsta is an artist with a focus on creating music with an innovative spirit. His most recent release, The Interrogation, is a stunning example of his sonic vision and aesthetics.
The album is a forward-thinking exploration of old-school hip-hop aesthetics and some catchy modern vibes, with stunning melodies and great production aesthetics that truly highlight the punch and width of this release. The overall production value here is off the charts. Each song mix is absolutely spotless, and it allows each element to sit seamlessly within its right place. The rhythm section is solid and fat, while the melodies are warm and present, without ever overpowering the vocals. The album has a really unique approach to the lyrical flow of the tracks, going for a very direct and in-your-face approach, while retaining a strong character and a very distinctive personality.
Optimistic Gangsta is not afraid to push it to the limit when needed, but he also understand that at times, taking a step back is the best way to let the song breathe.
Ultimately, I’d definitely recommend listening to this release, particularly if you are a fan of artists the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Kendrick Lamar, or Wu-Tang Clan, which definitely share a common ground with Optimistic Gangsta and with the sound of this record. In addition to this amazing studio record, there is actually a lot in store for this artist on the rise! In fact, he has also announced the upcoming release of a double album, which is going to be available during the summer.
