Wordsworth Mirror Music: Deluxe Edition
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Halftooth
When Wordsworth (of Lyricist Lounge fame) released Mirror Music in 2004, this once battle-ready rapper suddenly had listeners from all walks of life paying close attention. Wordsworth's honest look within himself was simply magnetic. On the re-release of this reflective opus (which includes a bonus remix disc by Oddisee), his introspections still resonate. Whether Words is speaking on his single-parent upbringing ("Be A Man") or how hard it was to break out of his freestyle rapper rut ("Gonna Be"), his Mirror Music remains essential listening.
