C.G. – “The Certified Genius” (EP Review)

C.G. is a producer based out in New Jersey who’s been at it behind the boards since the age of 16. He’s spent the last decade working with artists such as Do or Die & Grizzy Hendrix, but he has decided to come together with an eponymous debut EP.

After the intro, the first song “Transition” by Elus & B.Ankha is a really great way to start things off as it’s a beautiful positivity jam. The track “Angels” by Guilty Simpson talks about brotherhood over a dim instrumental while the song “Destruction” by Dikulz & Twisted Insane is a cutthroat boom bap/metal fusion. The track “Never Sold Dope” by Bizarre & Ren Thomas sees the 2 looking back at their come-ups over a slick instrumental whereas the final song “Higher” by Ca$his & Niamson talk about reaching for the stars over a killer trap beat. The EP then finishes off with a remix to “Angels” that I actually like more than the original.

Overall, this is a solid effort. The guest-list is mostly on point & I really like the diverse range of sounds that C.G. manages to pull on here. If you wanna hear an up-coming producer doing a good job at showing what he’s capable of doing, then give this a listen.

Score: 7/10
