Lost Summer • 2011 Debut Album • Vision The Kid
Vision the Kid is a musical virtuoso from Minneapolis whom achieved something few artists did in 2011: he put out a legitimate musical creation that stands on it’s own merit. Lost Summer was released November, 2011 as a debut album, yet the musical experience is felt throughout the ten tracks. Rap albums have turned into predictable, two-dimensional marketing packages that fail to inspire, entertain, or inspire. So when an album like Lost Summer comes along it stands out from the rest.
The evolution of hip-hop jumps out the speakers with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The rhymes are hard, lyrics intelligent, and full of Midwest flavor. The influence of Ryan Traux fits perfect to the up-tempo, pop infused storytelling.
I kept this album in heavy rotation upon it’s release because each track is uniquely distinguishable from the next. There is no contrived template that keeps the production stale; the exact opposite occurs with the diverse influences of music that serve an artistic purpose. These intangibles explain why the album is enjoyable and flows smoothly from beginning to end. Please draw your own impressions and support artists who produce quality music.
