Atman – The Silent King


Atman – The Silent King


Most would agree most popular artists out there have something truly special to give to their fans. This goes above the typical attributes like raw talent, amazing songs, nice voice, or even a very marketable look, sound & image. There’s something truly infectious at the core of these artists that simply makes us feel good, or in this cae powerful when we listen to them. Whatever it is they all seem to have it. Today I listened to the latest CD from rapper Atman.

Venturing to the Internet I get the impression this guy is a diamond in the rough is making quite a name for himself regionally and internationally via his own unique signature sound and passionate messages. He has received much in the way of critical acclaim from music critics in the past. This latest CD “The Silent King” release is just a testament to all the hard work it takes when you’re an up and coming artist.

Review: From start to finish this 16 track CD from Atman is a very entertaining and highly diversified musical statement from start to finish. It covers a lot of ground with many Rap, Hip Hop flavors. Any fans of any of these many musical styles will enjoy this latest release from Ataman. It’s clearly marketed for those who like the male fronted rap persona of say classic Outkast, Nas, Jay-Z, Tupac, and even a splash of Msdlib. Atman holds his own behind the microphone, and is an impressive performer. The plethora of musical professionals he brings to the table (Producers and Performers) only adds fuel to the fire. This along with his marketable flair and impressive performances make for a deadly combination via this fully loaded 16 CD. Atman is clearly being himself as an artist. Atman is one rapper that can be powerful yet positive all at the same time. All pieces have an amazing feel and solid production value delivering thick low end groove and crystal clear high end clarity. The sampling and production touches are rock solid and just makes the whole CD enjoyable.

My favorite track: Gun Control

Conclusion: Again I see Atman as a strong contender with his infectious persona, silky rap flow and amazing signature voice. This latest release showcases some hot tracks no doubt. Some track like “Murder”, “Gun Control” and “Soar’ are off the hook. Each piece marketable with their own right. If the masses tap into Atman it could be like pouring gasoline on a fire. As time goes by he will no doubt see what happens, but in the meantime it’s nice to know in this saturated market of music there is one rapper out there who remains true to himself. In close most famous artists out there have it I’m not so sure what it but Atman definitely has whatever it may be.
