The Niyat – Recycle Bin (mixtape)

Share Button

This mixtape is presented by FWMJ.

Just listen to it, the natural talent at work is plenty obvious. Sure, the ‘us vs the rap industry’ mentality and subject matter are well tread, but The Niyat sells it with a dedicated unyieldingly angry attitude – these guys actually sound like they take this shit personally, instead of chanting protest against mediocrity as an easy catchall mantra. It also helps that unlike MANY other lyrically intensive rappers this group is very proficient at picking beats, with selections just strong enough to avoid plodding but not so distinct as to take the focus away from the words. The mixing of the project is a bit rough, it never surpasses the feel of being a loose collection of tracks, but then again I don’t think they were trying to make a proper album either. It’s more of an exercise in craft than an artistic statement, and as such it’s tremendously entertaining.
