Growing up in Miami, Tonedeff learned to rap by freestyling over the region‘s popular 120-plus bpm records. You can tell by listening to the hyperkinetic flow he brings to "Heavyweight." Lines like "I stay flagrant with lyrics nastier than Tammy Faye bathing" drop faster than Lil‘ Kim‘s dress at a music industry gathering. The hilarious "Pervert" sounds like a sped-up Biz Markie chopped up with Mozart. He displays a serious side on "Politics" and "Masochist," which breathes life into the tired subject of the plight of the indie rapper. Tonedeff‘s quotable quotient is worth the listen, if you can keep up.
