Miami-based emcee and singer Rawsrvnt has found favour with Cross Rhythms ever since his pioneering hip-hop worship track "Breathe". Now he's issued this five-song EP and it definitely has its moments. I like the slow, lugubrious "Ice" written as a tribute to his NFL-playing brother who apparently has "ice in his veins." For me though the best cut is the title track which the rapper himself calls his "motivational music." I love the way he expresses positivity and a fearless attitude - "You stack the chips against me?/My deepest sympathy." Guest rapper Pyrexx adds some good stuff too. "All In" has old school guests Pettidee and Teron Carter (of GRITS) who contribute some nice touches.
