Fresh from his recent singles, “Don’t Call It a Comeback” and “Se Roquel,” Baltimore rapper Speed on the Beat is waving goodbye to his final album, The Sorest Loser. Drawing influence from artists such as Open Mike Eagle, Big K.R.I.T., Blu, and Kendrick Lamar, Named after a quote from Baltimore Orioles legend Earl Weaver, the project serves as a fitting end to a career that spans almost two decades. The project is thirteen joints long, with numerous guests, and a gambit of sounds and vibes for listeners to take it. Worth a spot on your playlist. We especially liked “Products Of Our Environment,” and “The Revolution’s Coming.”
“Baltimore-born and College Park-raised,” Speed on the Beat has seen it all. His final hurrah doesn’t come entirely out of nowhere, as he’s [in the past] shared his “willingness to retire from music at any moment and go into any project with no regrets.” As a writer, he can be found on [popular] sites like Boi-1da.com, EyesontheRing.com, a wrestling-centric site, DefineARevolution.com, the homepage for the Team DAR movement he represents, and his site, SpeedontheBeat.com.
Definitely a dope listen for old — and new fans. If you missed them, you’ll also want to check out his other project!
