L.A. producer Beatnick Dee and Kentucky MC Allen Poe team up to deliver their new EP, Composure. You might wonder how the two work so well together since they come from different worlds about 1500 miles apart. Dee’s experience as a crate digger and sample dealer mixed with his technical precision to craft a range of sounds fitting for Poe’s honest, every-man approach to songwriting creates a timely message.
The storytelling is nuanced by America’s stormy social climate that packs modern substance and behind classic styles. Poe’s lyrical skills are impressive. He is smooth and exudes a powerful calmness over Betanick’s production that many MC’s would kill for.
Features from Cashus King (FKA Co$$), Deacon The Villain of CunninLynguists, Versailles The Everything, Cashius Green and Kem Kola were thoughtfully tailored to fit outside artists to Poe’s message and Dee’s musical composition.
