This album memorializes the nostalgic address of Raf Almighty’s childhood. It’s a raw musical trip down memory lane, wholly inspired by the city of Baltimore, the immediate vicinity of his childhood, his brethren and the dynamic experiences of living in “Charm City.”
BigBob continues to instrumentally mature and evolve while still exhibiting his dark, moody cadence. He sonically sways with heavy rhythmic drum patterns bouncing effortlessly and melodically replicating the mood and tone of Raf’s songwriting and vocal flow. It’s 40 minutes of pure unadulterated classic hip hop. Each track tunefully shape shifts to suit the narrators.
Raf’s writing aims to demonstrate his originality by displaying his ripening mic presence. His style is simple yet effective with an unmatched emotional fervour, acute delivery, formulaic flows and memorable punchlines. He recounts details stoically, vividly bringing real life to his verses.
It’s evident throughout the project that the pair share similar sources for their musical inspirations. Raf pays homage directly to the hip hop influences that helped galvanize his experiences as a youth on Dolphin Street.
BigBob collaborates with LD-on-the-Cut for cuts and mixing, solidifying their chemistry for stellar hip hop production. Art direction for 537 Dolphin Street by Klever Skemes. Released globally by Elite Sound International.
