TODAY: Kardinal Offishall drops AMTRIM (Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself)

June 15, 2012

From the very first time I heard of this project, I’ve been looking forward to it, like a kid at Christmas.  Hands down, Nottz is my favourite producer – from Little Brother, to Busta Rhymes to Snoop and more, every beat is like ear candy.  Then pair him with the lyrical genius of Kardinal Offishall, and it’s a wrap!

I got to hear a sneak peek at the AMTRIM release last night and it literally had me nodding my head from beginning to end.

Sonically and lyrically, it’s a complete album, period – Nottz no doubt put down his signature heavy beats throughout, but there’s also a few uptempo tracks and even a surprisingly dope slow jam that will no doubt get rinsed on a few mixtapes before now and Valentine’s Day.  If you’ve ever wanted to get to know Kardi better, AMTRIM is practically a personal journal. He covers everything from love, spirituality, soul-searching, family and friendships, to achieving his goals and becoming a man.  Naming the album “Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself” is a perfect title since Kardi manages to reveal pieces of his life that were hidden.  His lyrics are raw, observant and unapologetic, and for someone who’s admittedly a private person, it must have taken a lot to creatively expose that much of his personal side.

I’m most definitely a fan of both artists and I can’t wait to see/hear/feel the reaction to this collaboration. It’s a ride worth taking and I left feeling refreshed with some hometown pride!
