19-year old Lorenzo Moore (pictured above), better known as The Renaissance, dropped this tape last year. A college student who's dropping some dopeness (I can relate, so disclosure: I'm slightly biased towards feeling the energy because of this), The Renaissance's Social Colour tape feels like some new-school jazz-rap mixed in with "the old Kanye" and a bit of a young Big K.R.I.T. (read: around the time around the KRIT wuz Here album). So, if you like either one of those artists, check this one out. Even if you're not a big fan of the aforementioned, you should give it a listen. Some of the standout tracks include the intro "Beginning of the End," "Way Back," (featuring a smoothed-out sample of Denzel Wansel's "Time is the Teacher") his freestyle over the "Amsterdam" beat called "Mentality," and "Social Media."
Keep an eye out on this young man. Trust me.
