The Levee might be broken but WateRR always knows when to go with the flow. The MC possesses the kind of style and finesse that could only be cultivated in his home town of Chicago. It should come at no surprise then that his work ethic is equal to his passion for music. On his newest album, “Broken Levee”, WateRR relates to the fans who care just as much for the beat selection as for the lyrical content. Capable of lyrically adapting to each song’s audible elements, he makes the album (as his name suggests) fluid. Quality in large doses, the album includes a blend of nine tracks that represent what a Midwest mentality can do when applied to the creative hustle.
The Intro “Amnesia” serves as a prelude to WateRR’s personal inspirations featuring vocals by Precious, setting the tone for the album. “Broken Levee” has moments of amped up energy on “Goin Crazy” and “Sum’n Mean 2 It” both produced by Tru Colors. This is paired with moments of smooth, body movin’ vibrations like “Cater 2 You” featuring Felony Davis and produced by BJ. On “Power” we hear verses on Money and Power while getting another hefty dose of Windy City rhymes with a feature by Vic Spencer. Personal highlights include “Party Pack” featuring Easy O’hare & Elementz Emcee, as well as “DruG MusiC” featuring Chris Crack. But it is the combination of WateRR’s laid back, witty delivery over the classic bounce of Producers Joe Blow and Awol that makes “Loungin” an instant classic.
