Download Retrospective 2: Freeworld (Mixtape) - E.L.

Milwaukee emcee E.L. released the second installment to his Retrospective series yesterday and the finished project is as intelligent as it is enjoyable. From top to bottom this captivating project has a diverse array of original beats and lyricism that are unlike anything we’ve heard from E.L. to date. When the tape begins to play you can hear the care and thought that went into every track just by the complexity in the verses. Features on the project come from the likes of Klassik, Yo-Dot, & J.K. The Reaper and every feature adds to this tape just like it should be. I highly recommend listening to the tape from start to finish but if you need a few tracks to listen to ASAP then check out: “Riches” feat J.K. The Reaper, “Gossip” feat Yo-Dot, and “Never Been”.

I knew I was in for a good listen as soon as I heard the Austin Powers style beat and the feature from Klassik. The track sounds like something you’d listen to on a private jet over the Caribbean; the chemistry between these two goes back to when we first heard them collab on Elevation last year, delivering a similar classy outcome. From the hook that puts you in your zone to the pristine verses, everything just comes together nicely and sounds 100.

Elevation – E.L. & Klassik

E.L recently dropped his sophomore mixtape Elevation, and although the tape was packed with great production and dope solo work, I was really feeling this opening track. It’s an anthem, with a jet-life style beat and an impressive hook that makes the verses seem monotone. Don’t let that come off as a bad thing though, the soft lyricism is exactly what this track needed to keep things chill. I don’t know, I was feeling it, and hopefully y’all will too.
