Lost in the Woods
Mic Boyd didn’t initially set out to be a hip-hop artist. He was a victim of circumstance (apparently, partly thanks to being schooled by his older brother Luke). On the track “Moving Out,” Boyd sings about the reality of hip-hop not being able to pay the bills. Luckily, Lost in the Woods proves Boyd was right to stick with it---that there is a pay-off in the end. Boyd’s flow is both tight and hard-hitting all the way through this album. He’s able to infuse bravado with doses of pop culture and humor (see “Michael’s Mystery”), which makes him more well-rounded than the usual MC. Reward him with repeated listening.
