This emcee from Lacey, Washington, brings a powerful banger of an album. S.O.C.O.M. has a gritty and passionate flow fuelled by some action-packed beats, especially in the first half of 'About Face'. The album title refers to the act of repentance. We're pointed to God's grace in what Jesus did for us in "Grace" as a pulsating bassy beat underlies S.O.C.O.M.'s flow complete with an R&B hook. The first single from the album, "No Place I'd Rather Be" features a catchy hook from J.Carter while "Fallin' Away" showcases Mico's smooth R&B singing with a flow questioning why the world keeps falling away from God. This laid back vibe is contrasted with powerful storytelling on the thought-provoking "Realities". On this S.O.C.O.M. is joined on the vocal hook by gospel diva Tremaine Harris. "Sex Slave" is a powerful closer depicting the grim realities of life without Christ.
