The New York-based hip-hop artist, producer and TV and music video director delivered this seven-song missive in 2014 and it still remains possibly the brightest jewel in his crown. Pride of place goes to "You Can Stop Me" where the shouting gang chorus make it the most effective declaration of positivity you're ever likely to hear. Almost as good is "All We Got" on which the line "love is forever and don't you ever forget it" leaps from the speakers; "Paisano Wylin" is a sarcastic dig pointing out the ignorance rampant in today's mainstream music scene while "Paganini" as blasts of rap so electronically speeded that it's truly impossible to grab what declaration they're conveying which conservative critics will suggest defeats the whole purpose of rapping but in the context of this song makes for an amusing effect. Andy delivered a milestone EP with this one.
