Hip hop artist and producer BRANDON SMITH released his mixtape Peru last month. Featuring realist, straight-up-reality bites lyrics with incomparable beats (and at times, cleverly sampled tracks), this 12-track production have all traits of a well-seasoned rapper/producer whose clocked up quite a few life experiences. In fact this upriser is only sixteen years old.

Peru kicks off with the track, Song for the Slaves – and if you don’t know this rapper, the track is the perfect introduction to his slightly husky a raps over a downtrodden but somewhat pleasant beats. Fly Away keeps this mixtape on a high, as it could easily become a favourite for most die-hard hip hop heads. In Fly Away, the multi-talented artist  from Dallas really stepped up and sped up his freestyling over a jazz-infused, relaxing-on-a-beach drive. BRANDON SMITH  shows that he’s a teenager beyond his years, in Niggers/Black Men, where he candidly raps how the black society (more to the point black men) are portrayed by media. 411 features on-point, out-of-this-world sample of MARY J BLIGE classic of the same name -check-it-out!

Overall, Peru definitely deserves your ears –  this guy has A LOT to say on issues that many are afraid to bring up. So If you’re fed up with rappers going on about the high life and can handle the hard-hitting truth, have a listen to the mixtape…better still download it for FREE.
