Summary: MP2 Produced DL - Mirror
Comment: Just to set the record straight. Mirror was produced by Mp2 productions not Reel Drama. Reel Drama produced the Ripshop side of this 12".

Comment: I'd never heard of DL until this morning when I opened up my email and saw I was supposed to review him. All I could think of was D4L or whoever the hell sang that "Laffy Taffy" song. Although I'll be honest, part of me was hoping that was actually the group I was reviewing. Turns out it wasn't. Apparently, DL is an emcee/actor hailing from Boston. Before clicking the link to “Mirror" I really had no idea what to expect. But it can be a good thing to go in with no preconceived notions. Too often I find myself reviewing what I expect the song to be rather than what it actually is. Regardless, I was very impressed with DL. On “Mirror", he drops three verses, each one a cautionary tale about a man who is living out of control in one way or another. Adulterer, road rage victim, drug pusher. And each tale ends with him catching his reflection in a mirror or some other shiny, reflective object. It's a cool, little concept that DL pulls off well. And he avoids the trap of coming across too preachy. He's just telling the stories. You judge for yourself. Plus, I like his delivery and enunciation. Very deliberate, as though he's letting you know he's a lyricist and has something to say. Reel Drama provides the beat, doing a nice job of matching the tone of the record set by DL's lyrics. Lifting the lyrics, “You, you I see…in my mirror every morning, instead of seeing me," for the song's hook, Reel Drama sets the listener up for what's to come, while at the same time giving the song a soulful touch. It's no “Laffy Taffy", but I don't think hip hop heads will mind. And for all those interested, this 12" is pressed up by Boston's Commonwealth Records on a limited run of 300.
