“I wanna create…I wanna create…a better tomorrow…so my people can foster…like babies with fathers…& all my brothers & sisters in coffins… (Creation Bang)”
Cecil Blutcher has just released his first full length project entitled The HigherEd Mixtape. It is a great collection of songs from a very talented artist.
This tape does not sound like anyone’s first mixtape. It sounds like an artist who is very aware of who they are artistically & very connected with the audience. From the initial chords of the tape there is a vibe that teleports the listener out of whatever space you’re in into a whole different mindset. As an actor as well as a musician, Cecil is able to paint a full picture that brings us into his world. He included Miseducation of Lauryn Hill type breaks speaking on different issues as means of education. Add to that strong production, strong messages & strong bars & you’ve got yourself a grand slam of a mixtape. It is a very strong Hip Hop & R&B tape. If this is just the beginning I can’t wait to see where he goes.
Cecil’s bars & singing voice are large & in charge on HigherEd, but he does have some assistance. At the end of the first track is a quip from Keegan of Keegan & Peele about his name. It is pronounced Cee-cil. There are also appearances by Achillez, JoJo Mitchell, Brinie Wallace, Kate Ryan & Nick Astro.
