Cezar – Roman Roulette
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ve heard of Cezar. Just about every post I’ve had about his music has included that his debut mixtape, “Roman Roulette” was in the works. I think just about every post has mentioned that he sounds hungry in his music as well. This tape is more of the same, in a good way. Although “Ambition” would be a fitting name for this tape, “Roman Roulette” works as well.
Cezar spent part of his life in Georgia, and you can hear some of that southern influence in his the overall sound on this tape. It really sounds like Cezar is out to prove something on each verse of this tape, with a tough delivery, as if to say “you just can’t ignore me”. The lyricism is definitely present as well, though. While a lot of the beat selection on this tape blends together, each track matches Cezar’s determination accurately. You definitely get the sense from “Roman Roulette” that this isn’t the last tape we’ll hear from him for a while. The drive is there to just keep going and going. I have a good feeling that Cezar will already be working on a follow-up soon, so keep your eyes open for that.
