Underrated Beat Review - Magnum Opus 2 from Rob Nollan Beats
Magnum Opus 2 from Rob Nollan Beats is BeatKongs.com choice for Underrated Beat Review in the week of October 25th, 2020.
Tacoma's Rob Nollan has quietly been building a thick portfolio in 2020. Working with some of the town's freshest and dropping dope creations of his own, his is a name that we anticipate to being heard from in abundance in the future. Our inaugural choice for Underrated Beat Review comes from Nollan, and its something any spitter worth his sauce should want to throw in the arsenal immediately. The quiet vocal melody that opens "Magnum Opus 2" is a prelude to something epic. You can feel it as the "ahhhh's" shift slowly into a higher octave over four bars and when Nollan brings in the drums and synth bass in the next sequence, it all comes together like an extravagant, auditory Lego concoction.
Cinematic strings and a simple yet elegant piano riff mark the break spot and bring the instrumental into something that has a fiery passion to it. This is something an MC can lay their heart out on, the ample sounds still leaving room for an artist to get creative with their cadence on. Get your baggage in order before staking claim to this one. It needs that extra from anyone picking up the pen to it.
