Soul? check! Lyricism? Check! Lack of oxygen for every zealous verse that realwarmwinter has laid out on his track, a reminder.? Check!
This is a standout example of when creativity rumbles and meshes with what was and with what is. The year 1936 collides with the present day as realwarmwinter delivers one minute and fifty-nine seconds of short'n'swift, straight to the point, sampled greatness to the likes of Billie Holiday's No Greater Love. It's a super-speed time capsule where classic genres like jazz and hip-hop complement the other without taking from each other, and it'll have you wishing for an extended version.
When you're as bright as realwarmwinter, sometimes all you need is one hundred and nineteen seconds to make a solid statement that blasts harder than your favourite. His presence is enormous, his conviction is colder than a Colorado winter, and his cadence is the marshmallow on top of your hot chocolate, keeping you warm as you enjoy the listening experience and roll with his lyrical punches.
"I was inspired when I had a performance with another rapper in my city. I consider myself a songwriter at heart, but he got on stage and was RAPPING, RAPPING! So I decided to drop a reminder to let everyone know I’m still an overall great artist". - realwarmwinter
The sound foundation of a reminder. is built with only the best, tuneful grit, glue, and a flow that cannot be replicated but rather celebrates realwarmwinter's origins, Southside Georgia. The energy of the south is dripped in realness that was birthed from hardship; this is where the term rose from the concrete comes to life. It's unsuspecting, it's piercing, and it's electric.
Since this release, realwarmwinter has drop after drop, and every single one is super hot. Do yourself a favour and set aside the time to absorb his artistry. His "Just A Vessel" merchandise is also on the way; keep your eyes peeled and your fingers trigger-ready to pull back and push forward the plays on a reminder. Link below.
