I vividly remember Deal The Villain posted up in the cut waiting his turn to rap at the 2011 Garden State Hip-Hop Cypher. The rap heavyweight turned heads with his distinctive voice and nonchalant rhyming cadence. It was no secret that rap came easy to the northern New Jersey native. Since appearing in the 2011 Garden State Hip-Hop Cypher Deal, also known as DTV has poked his head in and out of the rap game. Perhaps he needed time to reflect on what made him fall in love with hip-hop to begin with.

Judging by the title of his new EP Beards x Beats x Kicks I could be correct. The Beards x Beats x Kicks artwork is the perfect precursor for a true hip-hop experience. The red, black, and green color schemes might remind you of the Zulu Nation. The turntable decks and speakers are reminiscent of a Sedgwick Avenue park jam back in the early 1980’s. His respect and thorough understanding of hip-hop music and culture is incredible.

The 8-track EP was executively produced by Michael Cardigan, Lyriq2Go, and Myk Dyaleks, but what makes Beards x Beats x Kicks more impressive is the production credits. Beards x Beats x Kicks features beats by Grammy-nominated producers Flying Lotus and Knxwledge. Deal chipped in for three credits of his own and one by S1ncere. Take a trip into DTV’s mind by clicking play. If you like what you hear purchase Beards x Beats x Kicks at your own price.
