After reading the reviews out up by people, I can declare that hip hop fans will take an immediate liking, while others might be skeptical. Non fans of this genre wrote about how “unoriginal this artist is” and how IceBloc.com is “just another person wanting to get rich.” I checked out some albums. The name “KRANKMUZIC” offers upbeat hip-hop music. The cover of the album features cracked CD with blue electric sparks along of the name of the artist in chrome, and the title of the album in red cracked block letters. In other words, the album cover could be called uncreative, unoriginal etc, by people who were not fans. Fans of this genre would probably call it one of the best. But from a natural point of view, the cover does the job of giving you an idea of what kind of music to expect aside from genre. IceBloc comes with new hip hop artists with “fresh, unique lyrics and energetic beats”. IceBloc seem to be full of talents.
After I listened to the song “Put it in the air” at iceblocmusic.com, I immediately took a liking to the electronic beats in the back ground. It somehow reminded me of an anime called “Air” where a girl with long blond hair, standing in the wind with her arms wide spread. After listening to the lyrics, I remember a time after the middle school got out and some high school students were playing rap so loud, that you could hear all of the song clearly. When I listened to “Drop roll” and heard the girl laugh, I had an image of a black woman in a club. The rest of the song followed on the somewhat harsh beat with hard to understand rapping except for the chorus of the song title. How the song fits into my musical taste would be difficult to explain because I am an emo (punk pop) indie, rock, and scream fan. However, I can say that fans of hip hop, and rap would easily declare IceBloc as number one, and with enough popularity, it could become as popular as Chris Brown and Solja boy.
