His sound does not reflect his Mississippi roots. Listening to it will put you in the mind frame of classic Nas with its grittiness and Common and Mos Def with its consciousness. With just enough beat to grab your attention without overshadowing the lyrics, PyInfamous recaptures the lost art of storytelling narrating a tale laced with the complex realities of struggle and strife.
On “Still the King Part II”, PyInfamous raps over the smooth classic from the Isley Brothers “Don’t Say Goodnight” reminding you what royally sets him apart from the rest with an underlying message through the sample not to sleep on greatness.
“So Dope” reveals his purpose in rap: to expose the circumstances of the people instead of succumbing to the “dumbed down version of the real hip hop”. Eloquently uplifting those who are discouraged on their paths to greatness or plagued with grief due to loved ones lost in senseless acts of violence, PyInfamous offers to be the voice of the voiceless and use his platform in rap to shed light on a less than perfect reality rather than showcase the glitz of the sometimes unrealistic fantasy; showing the world once again why he is “So Dope”.
