Nick Carter Green

ADD (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

It really seems that there is a very healthy hip hop and rap scene in Illinois. My hometown area of Rockford has a lot of acts that have gotten some attention, and while Nick Carter Green isn’t from the Rockford area, he’s from nearby in the vicinity of Chicago. This new single shows Green has a lot of talent and a unique style. It bodes well for his future.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2012  Volume 4 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
ADD

The music on this has a cool electronic sound. There are interesting waves of sound dancing over the top. Some vocal loops serve almost as instrumentation. In some ways, this is not the most musical hip hop song of all time. It’s one of the cuts that seems more rhythmically involved than it is melodic. That said, there is some melody here. The rap is pretty far up in the mix, though, and is really the key element to the number.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
