DUTTY DEVIOSO – Up The Ante (Groove Control Entertainment)
If you like your music dirty then this is for you. It’s not even dirty, it’s dutty! Yeh, that’s right this album is something rather special. As a rapper his delivery is really clear and he spits each word and syllable with pin point precision. Killer tracks for me included the hard-hitting title track ‘Up The Ante’, the bouncing two-step anthem “Two Step” featuring Kid-O. Loving “F**k Y’all” featuring Kingpin Slim and bassline on “Overnight Celeb” is awesome. Other cuts worth mentioning have to be the huge radio joint “Dis Is Life” and the humorous “Googa Mooga”. On the whole the album is as good as anything your gonna pick up on Cash Money or No Limit. This is a great long-player and is without a doubt definitely worth a purchase.
