Will Tesla x A.G.E. mixtape

Finding dope unsigned lyricist is such a great feeling. Being a hip-hop enthusiast that grew up off Wu-tang that’s living in the days where mumble rap and dumbed down lyrics reign; it’s hard to find music with substance. Brooklyn’s own, Will Tesla, gave me an exclusive listen to A.G.E and I must say its NICE! Dope bars. Story telling. Soulful. Artistic and filled with jewels. Songs like “Meant to Be” and the single “Regrets” are guaranteed to have you¬†paying attention to him and following his independent career.

I’ve always held New York emcees to a higher standard and I give the FTCHHN stamp to Mr. Tesla. The Uchiha inspired “Nothing to Lose” is CUH-RAZY! The punchlines, metaphors, and aggression make this song standout easily. Just when I thought Tesla was in cruise control, he switched gears. *wordplay. I love the anime inspiration and lyrical wizardry on this track. This track has so much life that it’s impossible for me not to like it.

Will Tesla definitely caught my ear with “Arrangement.” The laid-back melody appears as a¬†song for the ladies but actually is vivid life story, you can tell every bar is actually experienced. “Anxious Heart” and “Arrangement” definitely are reminiscent of a Skyzoo and Soul Council collaboration. “Journey” deserves its own video. The Mr. Feeney intro definitely caught me off guard, but the message puts me back in junior high school trying to find myself and find my worth.

Been Threw It” is my favorite track on this tape. The verses exchanged between Cleveland’s, Treazon, and Tesla ride this street banger incredibly. Both brought a lot of energy and made it easy to play this track on repeat. It’s clear that these can hold their own on the mic lyrically with some that are on the Billboard Charts.

Soon as A.G.E is available to the public, you’ll hear it first. Till then…GET FAMILIAR!
