REVIEW: Person X - Wreck the Flow

Person X, based out of Saint Louis, MO, brings highly energetic, politically-infused, genre re-defining hip hop to the the stage with their album Wreck The Flow. Person X, formed four years ago on the south side of St Louis, have captured audience with their intelligent lyrics and wild electronic soundscapes.

You can get a good feel for this group from the first track on Wreck The Flow, Mr. President (Chief Culture Thief) with their perspective on the current political zeitgeist.

Person X took a unique approach to a title track by splitting it into Wreck the Flow Parts 1 & 2. Wreck the Flow Part 1 gives you a glimpse more at the electronic side of the group while Wreck the Flow Parts 2 is more geared toward their hip hop side.

To the Gods We Serve is nothing less than an epic, emotional journey questioning faith and the status quo.

Wreck the Flow is jam-packed with thoughtful lyrics and strong opinions on the thoughts of the times. With well executed rhymes layered with electronic instrumentals, Person X has created a roller coaster ride throughout the entire album - never with a dull moment.

4 out of 5 stars
