I tell stories, I crack jokes.
I rap fast, I rap slow.
As a rapper, his delivery style is intense and fast moving. He raps with precision and speed, flowing through bars like he's competing in an underground cypher. His ferocious style really shines through on Booty Talk and So This, So That. Whereas the song with the most replay value on this album might be Highest Highest. It has a vibe similar to The Cycle, but more fully captures the essence of that chillhop lofi sound and conscious rhymes emanating from the Great Green Mountains of Vermont.
The Guerrilla Tape is a juxtaposition of classic rap beats, innovative musical loops, and explosive lyrics that fully showcases the talent and creative energy of Eyedos. To create his unique sound, the Burlington, Vermont rapper uses an eclectic mix of soul, rock and lofi hip hop elements. "The Guerrilla Tape" shows the true artistry and versatility of Eyedos.
One of the highlights of the album is The Cycle. It's a high-energy, groovy track that sounds and feels like the real deal. Eyedos has a fast-paced flow that matches his explosive lyrical content. The piano gives the song a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony kinda early 90s nostalgic sound.
Another track you must hear is Highs In Low Places. The song sets a stark contrast to the classic boom-bap rap sound you hear on songs like Bottom Shelf, Too Nuts, and As Is Written. This track has a fresh, futuristic anthem kinda feel. As he sings, "anytime you feeling low, just remember the people you love", you get the sense that you're listening to an alt-rock song.
On S.T.E.P, there's a smooth jazz loop that lays under a rough beat as Eyedos sing-raps with a touch of autotune. It feels like a cross between chill-hop and Hard & B. Things get down and open as he sings, "I just wanna get away, get far away from this place."
The album starts off sounding very old school, upbeat and braggadocious. As it slowly declines from a positive to a more negative perspective on life fully of self-doubt, facing inner demons, battling drug addiction and coping with abandonment issues in a laid-back, lofi setting. Struggling to gain control of his emotions, Eyedos spirals out chaotically in songs like Hell To Pay and The Reaper as he reaches into the deepest, darkest corners of his imagination dripping with perversion and mania over some horrorcore soundscapes.
