Rainbow Skies unfolds more and more every time I listen--proof of Czarnik’s artistic vision and strength. Conscious hip hop with a top notch collaboration of vocals wrapped in a poetic, jazzy, soulful vibe. A long time fan, this work doesn’t disappoint.
Favorite track: Money.
Rainbow Skies is the brainchild of poet and emcee Melissa Czarnik’s (Zar-nik) hard hitting and melodic flow, who has been called by Bitch Magazine, “an inspiration to young emcees everywhere.” Her 90s era storytelling evokes memories of her early inspirations like Nas, Lauryn Hill and Saul Williams. There’s one thing that all Czarnik fans can say, is that the soulful fluid rapper has produced a surprising, potent and thoughtful mix of funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop, a genre-defying sound that music lovers of all types can get behind.
