MIXTAPE : BEEHIVE SALAD || LEMUEL KNIGHT

Lemuel knight project BEEHIVE SALAD is finally out for streaming and download


PREVIEW OF THE PROJECT “BEEHIVE SALAD”
Hip Hop Heads ready to read from LENDO’s HEAD as soon as his much anticipated Project drops 1st October 2017.  No one can rival LENDO when it comes to timing of projects release. Now, let’s analyze this analogy.

The 34 minutes 3 seconds project was housed by NEXT2MIC label based in the HIVE. The label only housed LENDO as her Lead artiste. Sometimes this year it was made public that LEMUEL KNIGHT will henceforth be managed by FREEMAN DAKMI eye brows where raised owing to the fact that this is the first time FREEMAN was doing this job many doubted the combo fast forward we have seen LENDO drop some crowd moving tracks which went viral before and after released. CHOICE, OG,  KINGS & QUEENS and MS ANN. Now looking at the timing of the project release it signifies freedom, independence and self believe in what LENDO does  1st October is the day NIGERIA attained independence from her colonial masters BRITAIN which is celebrated yearly as day of independence. this project has no feature apart from back up or featured vocals its a solo effort a replica of what J COLE did on FOREST HILLS which broke records in the US as it attained double platinum. It’s a bold move, and where it floats, it soars, but it flops gloriously when it doesn’t. LENDO with no doubt has placed himself  in the pantheon of rap greats and he is rightfully satisfied with the end product, as will the fans.

1. ALERT -
 Any moment from the 27th till month end government workers stay glued to their mobile phones with their ears and eyes wide open to arrest any sound or ring from their phones. It’s being a long time coming LENDO promised to put out this project out for mass consumption. First track on the tape sees LENDO introduce himself as a born king back to snatch back the crown from whosoever might have the crown in possession with zero regards to the heir to the throne. As the beats rolls on a sample MALE voice faded in before LENDO’s first verse. On a serious note LENDO ended the track with breathe taking lines.
most notable bars*
‘we mastermind the craft since they can’t slave us’’
what a great way to start a project don’t shout yet more bars ahead!

2. FOR THE LOVE
For every action there is a reaction right? Smooth piano introduced the audience how BEEHIVE SALAD was cooked with KAY MAHN’s strong vocal trait singing
''For the love and what it worth Sticking to the cause back and forth
Ho oh ohoh ho oh ohoh Is a new day stars will shine Street love /word/ all the time''
on this record LENDO wasn't shy to express love for the game street wise to the brain despite being underground since the come up relentlessly keeping it real even with blunt hopes of making it to the top. lyrics on point, collaboration and choice of instrumentals great.
most notable lyrics picked*
''Super-duper nigger being ill with the pen

So I put my bars in a sick bay to this end
Put word to my enemy I still got friends
My life on a verse put yours upon a hook
The finest pen man who is on to write a book
I understand affection but my love is in the booth''

3.STREET LEGENDARY
Hard drumming perfectly mixed with CMAN’s angelic voice sorts of recipes you see on international dishes. street legendary further stretch the versatility of LENDO's delivery.

Great lyrics and instrumental .

4. RIGHT INSTINCT

Yo i'm a street legend who have been around for 10 years keeping shxxts real and i got the right instinct to still keep it real for the next decade. the entire project is like a so far so good tape its all about the journey so far from 10 years ago all the struggles, pains and hardship regardless the little success attained shouldn't be taken for granted even tho the street legend proclaimed he doesn't need a trophy to know who he is.

i advice you listen to this track with the right instincts.

most notable lyrics picked*

''10 years in the game a straight A Nigger

I feel big like Wallace but I have to get Bigger

Wanna Roc em nations like a wannabeeJigga

Wannaem Six figures word to Nigger Six yo''

  




  
5.GOD ( BGBLOG PEAK OF THE TAPE )
Sampled speech talking about God power the energy that exists for everyone which can both be used either for good or evil, n the days of ILLUMINATI the masses are been manipulated with population control strategies. LENDO goes deep into thoughts of who God is to rappers putting out some strong words out there LENDO rapped;
''If am the best nigger out and the worst shxt seconds me
Trust me I will sabotage the craft''
LENDO very vocal about maximizing God's power to destroy worst shxts if been seconded as the best. this is so legendary you cant forsake the fact that LENDO is brave and confident the sort only PAC & BIGGY possess.
most notable lyrics picked*
Black nigger black rhyme colour of the essence
Food for your thought still messing with your new
OGs endorsement still making new friends
Picture God in me when I come do for instance
Can’t bring to present what you done did in past tense
Made a choice for OGs real shit surrounds me
First nigger out non came do before Overstand
with God and no one befalls me me You know I mean''



 


   


6.BETTER DAYS

what ever you do you need faith, you need to believe in what you do hoping for better days ahead. you have to fill in the blank or occupy the space despite the struggles pray to God and hustle hard. i think this track is as important as the the reason why you reading this.

most notable lyrics picked*

''Throw the bars to your face pray hope for grace

Deep in the struggle yearn for better days

I have to fill in the blanks or occupy the space

Never quit the hustle, have to change what’s the case

Since I got a joint and a Matchstick to lace

I rearrange the bars and the yardstick to ace''

7.MISFIT ( BGBLOG PEAK OF THE TAPE )

My pick of the tape, im gonna be short & honest on this coz if i'm to write more i might end up over rating the track which is not the aim of this write up.

i love the instrumental especially the piano sustain on the layout.this track is a most listen if you an artiste you need to listen up coz its relate-able.

most notable lyrics picked*

''Balling three point calling fire to this joint

From 2010 I blee straight fire from my pen

Can’t be sitting on the bench and acquire number 10

Man of the moment I’ve been the same man before

Dreamville in Omen no beefing this man''

 

8.DISS BARS
lyrical exorcism portrayed by LENDO from start to finish hard bars with zero rest to listeners addressing young hommies (Fxck bois) disrespecting OG's and lazy hommies that complains not to understand his hard bars.to be honest i thought diss track was a retaliation for popular diss track ''Fxck BEEMA'' by X-SHALOMZY which trended few months ago after the most prestigious Beehive entertainment award BEEMA AWARDS 2016. when quized by our reporters after the final closed door BEEHIVE SALAD listening session LENDO claims not to even know of the song existence hence diss song is termed as controversial.

most notable lyrics picked*

''Deactivate fuck boys and put em up for shuffle

You said you got dope boys put em out to hustle

We don’t even recognize fuck boys upon Diss

Since they fuck as hell place cock shit upon Diss

A Joint flow yo no one second this''



9.FINEST PEN MAN ( BGBLOG PEAK OF THE TAPE )
Every emcee naturally should possess that bragging rights which help sets every artiste up above or below his or her peers.most artiste are critically acclaimed we see rappers acclaiming titles or roles for example T.I KING OF THE SOUTH, MI ABAGA THE CHAIRMAN etc. on this record LEMUEL spits and acclaimed why he is critically the finest pen man of this generation as he has promised before the year runs out he will put out 30 tracks to strecth his penmanism he put out 5 dope contents plus 10 tracks on the tape suming to 15 tracks so far so good LENDO is half way to the 30 track mark its interesting to see how he will complete the remaining 15 tracks as promised. lyrically FINEST PEN MAN is one of the top track on the tape.
most notable lyrics picked*''Who will shine the light when all of us is stars
Me maybe ready raw shit and crazy

Lil wayne your ass when you still call me baby
Am all around the cycle and up for the hustle
Cant never stop you can never stop me

My pen has to bleed Apollo to the creed
Take your jaws out Nigger Dolo to the weed''

10. LENDO’s STORM

Great way to end the tape, LENDO talks about doing his thing his own way with zero tolerance to how shxt is been done like intros and outros on tapes or tracks. This further explains more how it is at LENDO's mind he is so unique he doesnt get himself boxed by any rules binding the game and thats his greatest trait. LENDO's STORM portrays class and styles employed to this tape. great lyrics with instrumental sounding stormy and scary dope by the way.

most notable lyrics picked*

Fire burn the mic you can’t kill the vibe
Word to Nigger Pedro we connect the trybeStill running cycle street name LendoHard to bend the lyn cos this Nigger coco
 












FINAL VERDICT BGBLOG OVERALL RATINGS
INSTRUMENTATION - 8/10
LYRICISM - 9/10
STORYLINE - 8/10
CONTENT - 9/10


TOTAL - 8.5/10


It’s evident that Rap is still the focal point of LENDO which was foresighted right from his early days when PROWESS endorsed him as a rapper at a street show. Obviously, there were a lot of creative instincts involved in cooking of BEEHIVE SALAD. The project entails Deep dive into crate digging with producer CMAN which results in an array of vibrant and eclectic sounds.


LENDO’s pen game is Superb, he proved that already on his debut project LISTEN CLOSE, M4TM, DTLQs and AFRAP (collaborative project with EMBEATS) with great Lyrical synchronicity. LENDO is well known for ditching out meaningful and insightful songs with very good contents he is generally regarded as a prolific lyricist whom hardly gets involved with frivolous fashion talks (meaningless catchy songs) despite his non involvement with the trends it still doesn’t hinder overall listenability.

Interestingly, LENDO’S music isn’t completely detached from his event organizing skills (he works at ONE MIC NIGERIA) nor his planned 15 minutes PODCAST yet no one could rival him when it comes to timing of projects release, he could spit hard on the MIC and in your food, yet you’d likely remain to be entertained and forgive him for unrelenting candor and vivid metaphors. The Independent record label man convincly alternates between a thug, player, black revolutionary, pen man, an MC’s MC and sometimes just a young man from BEEHIVE with plenty storytelling.
