Stepping at his own pace, Sneaky-T is set to put his foot down on the scene and make noise, breaking silence in rhyme to unleash the Exordium EP. The fresh release for Sneaky-T, who has been on the down-low recently getting the wheels of Clockwork Records in motion, has both hands pointing to a March 26 countdown. The cutting-edge production weathers cross-genre chaos and finds solid ground just where Sneaky-T feels is right.
Searching for the right vernacular to describe this output of musicality, 26 year-old rapper/writer/producer flipped through the Oxford. Exordium! “It perfectly filled the bill as a description of the beginning of something big.”
Bringing it straight to ya face, Sneaky-T’s wordplay comes “blunt, raw, comical, rude and straight up with no sugar coating.” Through Exordium, Sneaky-T goes to work sharpening every cut. To further explain where Sneaky-T is at, ‘This Ain’t A Mic Check’ produced by Kleen Beats is a kung-fu kicking lyrical onslaught to set the temperature for the rest of Exordium – Take the heat or leave.
The EP’s kick-off single, ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ has been acknowledged on Triple J’s Unearthed and lays ’em all to rest. The heavily layered output clearly celebrates Sneak’s melody of music. Expressing his childhood passion for this, Sneaky-T opens up here, with stand-out production work from Pretension.
Also making a revamp, the infamous VC track that has previously spawned an early release, ‘VC Knights 2’ with punching bars of unrelenting rhyme assembles Brisney’s dopest underground headliners, Fundamental Elements, The Allegiance, PJ, Doobs and Ahrensy showing strength in numbers here on this VC throwdown. The incredibly balls-out rock riffs and chopping block beats by Skinz turns this one out, as does the Friday night anthem, ‘Get Ya Kegs Out’ which introduces the jazzy-beat handiwork of Coalition Crew’s Yuin Huzami.
Ending the 5-track affair with posse track, ‘The World Sits Still’ invites the deck-fresh starter, Skinz back to handle the double-paced rhyme drops from Doobs and Biotic from Clockwork’s own The Allegiance and Halfkast from Grand Audio Family lays down some harmonious vocals over looping piano keys.
The introspective journey felt through Exordium, conjures lyrics from the young entrepreneur’s personal trials, branching different social topics through the ups and downs of Sneaky-T.
“I believe that it features passionate songs, party tunes, storytelling and hard-hitting pieces and a classic crew track. I’m very happy with how it has turned out.”
The first of what he hopes to be a diverse and stretched catalogue of recordings, Sneaky-T is creepin’ hard on a come up.
