A thirteen track-list of sheer mayhem with an elegant overtone. Blessed Be The Fruit is an addition to the godly gifts that Deaudrick Williams has given to CitrusRap and the world. The Tampa emcee continues to give us something to stir up this year’s lyrical debate, adding fuel to the fire that he ignited months ago and throwing a tantrum any beat thrown his way. Freestyle or not, no beat is safe around Deaudrick Williams this year.
The introduction to Blessed Be The Fruit, “Seeds”, is a straight body blow over a soulful instrumentation. Perfectly titled, of course. “Seeds” is just the start to a movie like experience. It features a strong, rhythmic drum filled beat that Deaudrick Williams manipulates smoothly and flawlessly, with his speed bag of rhymes and throwing a hay-maker or two, ever so often. Never missing a punch. Reminiscent of the generations greatest fighter, in which the track is obviously themed after.
A treasure chest full of gems such as “Exhibit G” and “Soufside Griselda”, featuring Marcus Jaron and BUDNOTBUDDY. This man and his army in Hillsborough county is a force to be reckoned with and should never be taken lightly. Doing it in the most organic and arrogant way so far.
Not only does this seem like it’s sport to him, but it’s child’s play in some way. Flowing and gliding over beats with ease, making SLIDERS out of tracks like “Baby Joker” and “Elektric Slide” featuring B Dolla$. But things only get wavier with the multi-quote-worthy, Tampa all-star track, “Poles” featuring E $krilla and Lil Fancy, and the soon to be airwave hit and ode to one of God’s greatest creations, “Ghetto Hoes.
By the time you hear the voice of the legendary Chicken Chan, you’ll be feeling exactly like the “Segway” skit. Convincing us that he has something dynamic hidden up his sleeve and this is barely the tip of the asteroid. I just pray that the world is ready for the turn up before time runs out.
Blessed Be The Fruit is truly an experience. One that needs to be witnessed in order to be understood.
