Zarinah – The Calm

 Hip-Hop/Rap 
 LP  

Zarinah ascribes ambition and gemmed up energy into her rhymes and lines on her latest release, The Calm (HERE).  To those of us who follow the rapper/actress/J-Dilla aficionado on social media, The Calm glides between tracks that vibrate like revealing journal entries and web posts (see “Snapped” and “Dear Jesse” for a better understanding) with straight-no-chaser rhymefests balancing out the more emotive moments (see the jolt floater “B.O.T.B.H (Brizzo On The Beat Hoe!)” and the tumbling dice delivery of “12 Steps” for a clearer understanding of what I mean). Other high-water moments include the steamy Roc & Shaystyled theme “Flower” and the wistful-but-still-strengthened “Can You Hear Me?”.  Solid sounds from the always entertaining Ms. Z. and chief partner in crime, producer Brizzo
