Confident social commentary comes together on Theology 3’s first project since the stellar Time EP. Mostly a clinic in straight-up mic-rocking, I’m Goin’ In finds the Screwface Mayor lacing together dozens of his syllable-killing punchlines and witty comments on modern life.
In Promoters, a stab at promoters who offer exposure over money, Theo weaves wicked wordplay through a bass-heavy banger. It’s nice to hear him getting his Slick Rick on over Amy Winehouse’s Back In Black beat for She Stole My CDs. The boombastic jazz style of the title track is impressive, while double-time lyrical skills are flexed on Breakin Cycles.
Theo 3 rocks Yonge-Dundas Square on Saturday (April 19), 10 pm.
