About OwnyOwn Music Group

OwnyOwn Music Group's Verbal Acrobats. Verbal Acrobats, from a big family of thirteen comes two brothers in art, PsyKey Train and Cnyx A. Originally from different crews, Tribal Thoughts (with Rare and Eternal Wisdom) and Heavenly Ill (with Lord Enigma and Stigmatic) respectively, they merged together with the PS crew (Hencelot, MeanGuy and SKH) and four other solo emcees namely Sushi, Masta Slang, TW# and Flo Sicka forming an entity known today as the Verbal Acrobats (VA hereafter). This was back in ’05 which also saw the establishment of one the most formidable production houses in the country yet, the (expired link) PsyKey Train and Cnyx A have albums out under NoyzBox212 including the VA’s first album The Reference Workshop which dropped in ’06. NoyzBox212 now houses some of the best talent in Hip Hop with the likes of Black Town, Afrikha, Cyrus Da Virus, Blessed Curse and the VA.
It’s been six years since the VA’s first offering. Having been pulled in all direction by diverging paths of personal journeys through life, VA has brought forth two of its available emcees as representatives to put together this highly anticipated album called After The Flood. An album aimed at realizing and recognizing God, knowledge of self with a conscious and spiritual content and reinforcing the roots of the culture and the true meaning of Rhythm and Poetry. In the making of this album both PsyKey and Cnyx, being incredible engineers and beat makers, decided to work with other artists such as Big Mike of Magic Music, Cyrus Da Virus, Black Faith, Devious Dee, Ayanda (Bass Guitarist) of Spell of Laughter and an international feature LAT from Arizona US. They share the same sentiments on how much of a blessing and honor it has been working with such great talent. “It has been one of the goals this album meant to achieve” they say. “The respect shared among all these artists sort of brings the feeling of God’s presence in the making of this here project to certainty. This kind of unity is, in concept, is thee Ark being built to take us through the flood which on its own is a vast concept better explained through the lyrics in the album” PsyKey adds. VA has seen immense growth in various levels. Apart from both PsyKey Train and Cnyx A holding down families, VA has seen a much esteemed addition to the camp, Inner Eye. More of a Visual Acrobat, Inner Eye is VA’s graphics consultant and designer from the sleeve to web designing. With NoyzBox212 partnering up with X-generation musik, one would say it seems like the sky is the limit but tracks like `A world above stars` that features Cyrus and `Tides on the timeline` give us a direct contrast to that statement.
The recording of the album is done and due to drop this summer. One might expect to find straight up conscious or righteous content only from this project but these cats put it down in a hard and street manner that most will fear to approach with a bluntly skilled ear. This album might also disappoint those who have conformed to the “new school” type rap though, with its mad boombab rhythm and poetic lyricism. Having reviewed this album I must say it is definitely a major contribution to Hip Hop. Don’t take it from me though, go out and get yourself a copy of this rap phenomenon.
