Exceptional lyricist, Shane Eagle unleashes his highly-anticipated debut album. Titled “Yellow”, the project of musical art is by all standards the classic we expected it to be. After all, Shane Eagle might have come decades after his generation and just brings the realness and sanity to the game.
The wordsmith is one act we love to listen to; however, he does most of his talking through his music. Yet, he extends this nature even with his releases and doesn’t just go on an outing for the fun of it. Reason why he shares deep pieces of his heart, stories and even society whenever he commissions an effort.
Records such as “Cutting Corners“ brings a realness to it that not many Emcees are capable of. Still, Shane Eagle might be just too real, even for his own good that he breaks the hearts of the articulate; even when he’s got the abilities to take those who loves the groove on a grind and vibe.
Well, that thoughtfulness also played out on his latest smash-hit, “Julia“. On those bars, the Midrand, Gauteng native simply took on the role of a social revolutionary, flogging consciousness into minds about the societal ills that seem to have become the norm. Do we even mention “Mary Mary“ and “Top Floor“?
We can go on and on, but with the “Yellow” album, that stage and pedestal is all set to become Shane Eagle‘s voice and we predict the entire South African nation will have no choice but to step back, listen and reconsider. There aren’t scores to be settled; just the two cents we should have viewed as valuable a long time ago.
That prediction actually holds an assertion as Shane Eagle already held a private listening session for a selected few and the response has been nothing short of overwhelming. We believe the “Yellow” album is one that will hold iconic and gem status, as well as one we wouldn’t mind sharing with the upcoming generation.
The 13-track project of musical art already offered glimpses of its direction as a deep and powerful body of work from its first track titled “Yellow.” “The album proves the lyrical dexterity and depth of Shane Eagle; some massive quality away from the cosmetics and lightweight architecture on the craft of many other players and act.
There’s no second of boredom on the “Yellow” album even with its mostly laid-back, mellow and lo-tempo ride that is smooth and wavy. Looks like many a fans will ruin the replay mode on its addictive spice and that’s a legit assertion because we already did.
Shane Eagle whose real name is Shane Hughes holds the wisdom, musical abilities and craft that belies his young years. The “Yellow” album is set to become the continuation of his roll which has been on from his days at Vuzu Hustle; where he eventually clinched 3rd position.
The Eagle Entertainment sensation released the “Yellow” album on 31.08.17. You know you definitely want to keep a date with Hitvibes as we will be dissecting all the steamy joints off the project.
