Concept One

Concept One has poured the past four years of his life into one thematic project: Beautiful Disaster, his brand-new, fifteen-track full-length. Dark and intimate in some places ("All Gonna Die") and triumphant and motivated in others ("We Run This Shit"), Disaster serves as the ideal showcase for the American Trash Republic MC's solid rhymes. Gangster tales mixed with real-life experiences are wrapped in solid production that cuts through the verses with a razor's sharpness, making this joint especially appealing to the ear. Over the course of the album, Concept paints a picture of life's ups and downs with a clear, clean flow, making the entire project all the more credible.
