The much anticipated album entitled Niagara by redveil is finally here. Marcus, better known as redveil, is a 16 year old out of PG County Maryland. I first found out about him through his track “soulfood,” but this project is on a whole different level of great. The 16 year old produced, mixed, and mastered all but three songs on here in his own bedroom. Niagara is raw, unfiltered, and colorful. It is redveil at his most vulnerable and he does not waste a single bar on this whole project. Coming in at 24 minutes long and 10 tracks, redveil’s bars are the best they have ever been, from his tremendous flows to the emotional maturity in his lyrics, you can tell this emcee is years beyond his age. “campbell” is the perfect intro to the whole project with heavy soul and jazz influence; it sets the pace well. The outro, “pigeonman,” is a somber, yet impactful finish to the project. Its melodious strings will put you in a trance and leave you speechless. redveil has slowly been building up a fanbase for the past few months and now it’s time for the young artist to shine in the limelight. Get hip to redveil before it’s too late.
