Long Island, NY emcee and producer B.Dvine releases highly anticipated EP titled ‘Times Have Changed.’ The 6-track EP features Hip-Hop pioneer and legend Erick Sermon, UK’s own Cuban Pete, D-Rage, and Xavia.
Dvine displays a mastered skillset in both production and rhymes to deliver an eclectic project that includes classic Hip-Hop vibes, a club ante, raw wordplay, and even something for the ladies. “Selfless Pride” sets the EP off and depicts Dvine’s moves in this new age and new dawn. Not green to the game, he knows the climb and is prepared to trek new heights. Over knocking bass weaved into penetrating pulsations for a modern twist, Dvine reminds the world he’s developed from negativity, yet sees the bigger picture clear as Absolut. The empowering track sets a tone for the remaining tracks.
“Hush”, a worldly collaboration, dictates for less talk and more action. Simply put Dvine, Sermon, Pete, and D-Rage are winning bosses with receipts. The aggressive domination flows over a riveting kaleidoscope of cadences intended to shock the core. “Don’t Mean Nuttin” piggybacks off “Hush.” Dvine puts rappers, the game, and outsiders on blast; while they aim to impress with fallacies, Dvine breaks everything down thread by thread.
“Come Alive” is the feel-good track of the EP. With alarming and cosmic soundscapes, this infectious anthem is ideal for a sleepless night out, busting moves on the dance floor, or bumping through the city. In “Chocolate Syrup”, Dvine shows off his lustful side with slick, yet sensual pillow talk. This is not your average Netflix and chill scenario, instead, Dvine commands his wordplay right into climax.
B. Dvine lays out a vivid timeline for listeners in “Mr. Dreams.” He takes us back to the vulnerable age of 15 when music and Hip-Hop were a passion then transcends to the moment his dreams greeted reality. It began from digging in the crates, rhyming, creating beats with his own niche and twist, to rubbing elbows with industry execs and legends. Dvine’s lyrical calisthenics drives a knife into doubters and even teachers who labeled him as hopeless.
Overall, ‘Times Have Changed’ embodies the growth of Dvine’s artistry and ability to curate timeless music during a period where Hip-Hop is ever-changing and steadily evolving. Stream ‘Times Have Changed’ and connect with B. Dvine below.
