It’s a bit ironic that the cover art for Chrisjaan LeMann’s newest EP is almost identical to J. Cole’s Forest Hill Drive. The connection between the two emcees is obvious, as both are self reflective in their respective projects.
Let’s back it up a bit. Chrisjaan is an up and coming artist hailing from Indianapolis. He is the vice President of ISO Media Group, a 360 media firm with sectors in music, photography, videography, and more. Aside from his business ventures, he is a diligent rapper, continuously working on his craft.
Maniacal was his debut; an impressive collection of introspective narration (check out our review here.) His newest, Tithes, is another milestone in his progressive career, as his intellect has grown, and maturation evident. Although labeled an EP, this is a full fledged album, 11 tracks deep. From intro Dreams, to the freestyle over Common’s Go beat, Chrisjaan proves to us that he is growing and finding his footing in life.
