Canon is a new-to-the-scene emcee from Chicago who weighs in with this five-song EP. With production from Swade Beatz ("Oh Lawdy"), Street Symphony ("Say Yea") and DeeontheTrack ("Loud Music") it's mainly a south-styled project with lots of sampled cut ups and loops and some electronic tricks. Canon shows he's a serious rapper with tracks like "Tell It All" showing some incredible double-time MC-ing, as showcased equally on "Say Yeah". The rapper is biblical throughout ("Oh Lawdy") as well as referencing rap figures and street slang.
