Bowl King’s “Red x White x Blow” IS GAME CHANGING ALBUM REVIEW: BOWL KING'S "RWB"
LOS ANGELES, CA- I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the new year than to listen to Bowl King’s second and newest album ‘ Red x White x Blow’. I’m not even kidding. It is extremely difficult for me to really get into new types of trap music, but this album really had me listening from the beginning to end. Bowl King is an up and coming Chicago trap/hip-hop artist that is going to take over the music industry soon.
Just beginning with the Intro song, ‘Rwb Intro’, Bowl King just hits you with an addicting hard trap beat that you just can’t turn your head away from. Usually intro songs are just monologues or unnecessary silly instrumentals to just make the album seem longer, but with Red x White x Blow, Bowl King really means business and just hits you with bars on bars. Clever and hard lyrics from the intro like “Man this winters cold, better pack a heat” and “All this ice on my neck got me freezing, all this sinning got me rocking Christian” really foreshadow the rest of the album. His wordplay is flawless.
That’s just the intro to the album. Songs like “Kitchen Counter”, Chillin’ wit My Fiends”, “Pole Wit Me”, and “Pull up Pop Out” are my favorite songs and they are all full of hard raps that focus on his personality. His flow shows that Bowl King is legit in the streets of Chicago, and he knows what he’s talking about. He isn’t just a kid talking about money, drugs, and the streets without any prior knowledge. Bowl King is self-taught and is showing his life through his music.
This album really blew me away when listening to it because it is definitely a new sound. It’s a sound that I needed to hear. There so much trap music that it is really hard to pinpoint certain names to a certain style because most of it sounds the same. Bowl King’s voice plus his deliverance appeases those who are looking for the next big thing. The beats that go along with the album just slap your ears with a nice bass and an addicting compilation of sound. The album is extremely well produced and is mastered perfectly.
The flow is very consistent and even has the same low-tone throughout the whole album, almost reminding me of other Chicago artists like Valee and Fredo Santana. The songs do a great job in captivating the energy that Bowl King is trying to appeal to the audience. Trappin isn’t dead and that’s what I understand when listening to ‘RWB’ and I am glad that Bowl King is coming up on the hip-hop radar. If you have never heard of Bowl King, you sure have now, and if you’re a heavy trap head like I am, you’re going to get addicted to this album. No seriously, I still have this album under “Recently Played” in my Apple music since very early-February, and it’s still one of my favorite albums to play around friends. Trap fans are going to love this upcoming artist as he has something new to show the trap scene.
