Ferreira’s latest album is rich and rewarding, the mark of a prolific artist arriving at the perfect unity between content and presentation.
The poet/rapper from Nashville shows again on The Light Emitting Diamond Cutter Scriptures that his singularity and his universe are the main ingredients that make a R.A.P Ferreira project a Hip Hop event not to be missed.

Winter is approaching, the sun is too often hidden by a gray veil of clouds, the cold invades the streets. It's time to take refuge in the warmth of a café to enjoy a moment where you can find yourself. Brake some seconds by the constraint to untangle my earphones ... read more

I feel like I'm a fan of R.A.P.'s but I don't actually know. I found this record pretty uneventful. It's a quiet, lyric-focused alternative jazzy hip hop record - which sounds amazing - but doesn't keep your attention. And I don't know what he's rapping about. I stopped paying attention a couple songs in.
