Simple Steven [Artist]
July 22, 2014 2 Comments
Here at Trainwreck’d Society, we are probably only slightly known for our support for the hip hop community. While yours truly is a HUGE fan of hip hop music, especially the thought driven and lyrical bliss that can be accomplished in a simple 16 bars. We’ve covered several hip hop acts, called out one artist as Person of the Year, and there is always a handful of hip hop albums on our end of year lists. Still, it still feels like we don’t do enough. That is exactly why I am so happy about this new feature. I am so happy to (possibly) introduce one of the finest artist I have heard in so damn long, Simple Steven.
Somewhere in the vein of the Bodi, Sadistik, or Cas One….we shall find Simple Steven. And this is not to say they have similar sounds, although they sort of do. If anything they are similar in how different they are form everything you are used to hearing the hip hop world. A Simple Steven song might be a bit less hook heavy when compared to his label mate Infidelix, and his lyrics a bit more complicated than fellow label mate Twitchy, and possibly not as dark in nature as the aforementioned Sadistik or Cas One. So what does he sound like? Exactly. He sounds like Simple Steven. He is man all on his own who has proven himself worthy of walking with the giants. And walk he shall when he hits the road this summer in support of his new album Abandon All Anchors, which will be released August 5th, with the likes of DJ Abilities and Jake Spike. And if the recently released music video for the album’s first single “Dormant” should act as a sign of how great this album and accompanying tour may be, you all are in for a real goddamned treat to say the least.
Simple Steven is, whether he knows it or not, a truly gifted lyricist by what almost seems like a birth right. Should this brilliant young man decide to continue down a path guided by his ability to spit a flow that leaves your legs weak and mind fucking blown, he is almost guaranteed success and massive gratification. There is little doubt in my mind that Abandon All Anchors will be a beautiful little building block that will piece together the beginnings of a very bright and definitely earned career for Simple Steven in the hip hop game.
Abandon All Anchors will be available on August 5th. Check HERE for more details. Also be sure to check out Simple Steven when he tours a city near you:
