We recently featured Sol, the star of Seattle’s hip-hop scene, when he released ‘This Shit’, the phenomenal teaser for his latest mixtape, ‘Dear Friends Vol. III’. Now, ‘This Shit’ set the standard high, but the rest of the mixtape exceeds any expectations you could have had. A beguiling mixture of up-and-at-’em tracks (the intoxicating ‘Addicted’) and slower numbers such as ‘Farewell’ and ‘WTF’, ‘Dear Friends…’ is lyrically powerful throughout and doesn’t fall into predictability. Artists Grieves and Dice make cameos on ‘The Times’ and ‘For The Love’ and add to Sol’s sound without taking over. ‘Dear Friends Vol. III is available via iTunes and Bandcamp.
