Previous | Vinnie Paz – Is Happiness Just a Word?
Written by Adam Darbyshire
As has become a custom in my calendar Vinnie Paz has graced us with his presence as we enter the winter period, although this year in a different form than his usually tour with either Jedi Mind Tricks, Ill Bill, Demigodz or Army Of The Pharaohs, in 2013 he has treated the world to a solo mixtape ‘Carry On Tradition’ which dropped last night.
As always this mixtape is packed with the gritty beats and rhymes we are used to, it does not disappoint. Alongside the defined style of beats the Heavy Metal King has adopted as his own there is a cold tale to half the songs on this tape which not only hook you from a musical perspective but for the story they tell.
