Kris Kasanova's "War Paint" Fly or Flop?
The first time I heard of Kris Kasanova was at an Occupy Legion show hosted by Da Kid French in Williamsburg, Brooklyn a few months ago. When he stepped on stage I had no idea who this kid was and he didn't really look like an MC in my opinion, thank God I didn't bet on that because this kid is Nice! He graced the stage with the demeanor of a multi-platinum recording artist and that drove the crowd wild. Hit the jump for the full critique of Kris Kasanova's "War Paint" a Free download of the mixtape and more!
After that show I had to download his Mixtape titled "War Paint" and I wasn't disappointed one bit, I was actually surprised because it was better than I expected.
Kris Kasanova's War Paint is a 14 track run through of everything he deals with that makes him a warrior from his everyday episodes in Red Hook, Brooklyn to the hard times he has making ends meet to raising his son and faulty relationships. His clever rhymes, catchy flows and memorable hooks makes this mixtape a more than worthy addition to my itunes library as unsigned hype. The truth is this mixtape is better than a lot of Hip Hop mixtapes and albums we got in 2011. On a scale of 0-5 wings I give War Paint a strong 4 wing rating, My Verdict is Fly! Peep one of Kris' Videos from War Paint below and Listen to or download the album for FREE!
Noteworthy Tracks: War Paint, Just Anotha Day, Possessed, and Sleep When I'm dead
Quote from Sleep when I'm Dead: " Not Hiring, gun shots, sirens, bills to my neck like a violin. Its tiring."
