"Everything is g-r-a-v-y" on this impressive and great album...
on April 30, 2013
The Life and Times of Jonny Valiant is Rittz's Strange Music debut and - as with most Strange Music albums - it impresses. Rittz delivers track after track with a wicked flow that can match that of Tech N9ne and Royce Da 5'9 (what I'm saying is: it's one of the best flows around); not only can he deliver deep, introverted and insightful tracks like the "Intro", "My Interview", and "Misery Loves Company", but he can also lyrically wreck tracks like "For Real" and create smooth anthems like "Switch Lanes". This album is smooth and consistent with great, versatile production and lyrics, along with outstanding features from Tech N9ne, Big K.r.i.t, and fellow Slumerican Yelawolf.
Rittz's story is one of triumph over failure; you can feel the anger and frustration from his past in his music - and that's an accomplishment. Buy this album and support an album and artist that deserves success. The deluxe edition features three extra tracks, which are great and worth the price.
