“More Than Beats and Rhymes” represents what D-Stroy has to offer hip hop.
“More Than Beats and Rhymes” Mix CD is typical of D-Stroy’s musical and lyrical style. The frantic delivery on “Bravo” Ft. Grammy Award winner Miri Ben-Ari (Hip Hop Violinist), explosive energy on “Time is Now” Ft. Freestyle & Snowgoons and humor on “Esto Es Lo Que Eh” Ft. Q-Unique & Tony Touch melt through rap’s icy demeanor. Cartoon themes in “1993” Ft. Pharoah Monche and sly humor of “Show must go on” Ft. Del The Funky Homosapien are part of his arsenal, but then again, so are deeply-felt stances regarding artistry and skills on “Art of War” and “Scan The Field” both featuring Shabazz The Disciple (Wu-Affiliate).
His standout vocal style, and loony, ribald wordplay over the production of Marco Polo, Hi-Tek, Psycho Les (Beatnuts) and more is admired by rap cliques from hardcore gangsters to players and pimps. This mix CDÂ cleverly meshes D-Stroy’s singles (never released on CD), his cameo appearances, unreleased material and memorable joints with Big Daddy Kane, D.J. Premier, D.J. Eclipse and Crazy Legs (Rock Steady Crew). “More Than Beats and Rhymes” will be the soundtrack for when you want to “Go Bonkers”.
