Subtitle Terrain to Roam
- Words: Eric Smillie
- Label: Alpha Pup
On Terrain to Roam, hyperactive emcee Subtitle (a.k.a. Giovanni Marks) drops deadpan wit over hot beats, spanning from Madlib's rich tones to Dntel's videogame melancholy. In between, Marks teams up with labelmate Thavius Beck on the standout banger "Wait for It" and fellow L.A. scenester Nobody for "Write is Wrong," a clever number on which Marks claims, "Before I go to the DMV/I'm gonna party like I'm crazy." Then, on the telling and not-so-glorifying "About the Author," Marks proves he has no need to posture to pen verses that sting.
