So, the last couple days I have been faithfully listening to Devvon Terrell projects.
“Medly”, “Weird, Sexy, Cool” and “The Renaissance”. Along with miscellaneous singles he has released via YouTube & Apple Music.
Let me just start off by saying, this young man is SO talented. SO talented! He is so adaptable to the beat he is on, not only content wise, but cadence-wise. He sings, he SPITS, and his timing on a beat is exceptional. Now, I take personal pride in my fandom, lol. The last time I have been this excited about somebody’s music, was when the Kevin Gates “Luca Brasi 2” Mixtape dropped. On repeat, everyday for MONTHS!
I could literally listen to Devvon Terrell, all day. And what’s so amazing, is that each project I have heard. I can listen to from front to back. It’s hard to listen to “Medley” after hearing “Weird, Sexy, Cool”, just because the entire project is his own. So in comparison I feel as though I backtracked. But by far, “WSC” is his best project. Hands down!
Have-To Tracks: “Weird Sexy Cool” Album
Track 1: “Doing Tonight” // Track 3: “Fire and Rain” // Track 8: “I Know” // Track 9: “Ride and Boogie” // And don’t worry! I have a whole week of Devvon Terrell planned beginning New Years day. With a story line attached to it.
Mind you, I first got hip to him via YouTube of course. Him & Futuristic blew my fucking mind! And I do not say that lightly! I am a huge fan of their cadence. I appreciate a singing rapper, like the Fetty Waps and Tory Lanez – but to actually demolish! Not only the bars, but the vocals! (Applause) There are moments, his vocals remind me of Usher. But like, what Usher was trying to sound like. (And this is in reference to Usher’s most recent sound). And there are even times, that his literal “sound” per say, isn’t so original. At brief ear shot, not knowing what he can do! Yes, you could easily confuse him for Usher or Chris Brown. That pop/r&b shit. But once you listen, you’ll know! This is neither one of them. This man is so talented! So talented! And I couldn’t tell you why he hasn’t blown up by now, because even with all that being said. He is the only Devvon Terrell. He stands out. But he stands out like, Waldo. You know he’s there, he’s the only on OF him. Unique, consistent, but somehow always lost in the crowd.
But the only way I could get you to understand what a fan I am of this young man, you are just going to have to listen. Stay tuned this week, for the Modern Fairytale spoken through various DT songs I thought you guys would enjoy!
