Stanza – Searching For Bobby Fischer

Searching For Bobby Fischer

It’s funny because I had heard of Stanza back in  late 08 or early 09, can’t quite remember.. when I was fucking around with my homie Nells who helped and motivated a brotha to get in this blog game heavy. We were hitting the Apache Cafe to catch a Bobby Creekwater show( had ran into Re too, that was a crazy night). Anyway, lets fast forward Stanza a Georgia  native has been doing this rap game for a minute from my understanding. And Searching For Bobby Fischer is very much so my formal introduction into Stanza the artist. A great one at that because I have fell in love with this tape! Seriously like no bullspit lol.

Let me be honest before I decided to download this FREE mixtape (which means once you’re done reading this review you should do the same!!!) , I wasn’t up on Stanza like I should have been, or will be from now on.It would have been nice to have more of a background for this guy which I will work on.(interview maybe?) But good things come in time and this tape came at the right time! Ok I’m getting a little too excited ha ha. I get excited about great music.

This tape doesn’t really remind of anything I’ve heard before right off the back which is good because that means its new, fresh and best of all creative. Which is what I’m all for. I can’t really say who Stanza reminds me of right off  because no comparison came to mind which is funny cause I’m always down for good discourse and comparisons, but I went blank. Which is honestly GREAT. Stanza is Stanza. I find it refreshing when you can listen to an artist and say they are themselves. One thing you have to do to catch the viewers and listeners eye is to be unique, different and best of all be yourself and Stanza does these things.

As I listen to this tape I think of putting this in the same regards as some of my favorites of the summer right now. It goes right up their with my own summer project over at cultureobsessed,  Kush x Orange Juice (and for me to put it up there with them is saying alot), I can name more tapes I’ve ran across and loved over this summer and this is up there with them. All in all I suggest you the reader to become the listener and go get this mixtape..did I say its FREE?
