Up And Coming Rap Artist Asylum Releases His Flagship LP “Coalesce”

Texas born rap artist Asylum has released his newest LP record, “Coalesce.” The album contains fourteen tracks comprising just over forty minutes worth of excellent rhymes and rhythms. The style is generally dark and spacious, with lots of room for his poetry to sink in between the beats. The beats themselves are heavy hitting and always in a balanced, boxer's cadence (one, one-two, one-two-three, one...) never annoyingly rapid fire or clumsily getting in the way of his eloquent lines.

The aforementioned eloquence of Asylum can not be overstated. Where most rap artists begin with beatboxing or rap and learn a kind of offshoot of formal poetry from penning rap lyrics, Asylum began the other way around, growing into rap music from writing classical poetry. Of this he writes, “I believe the door to my music opened when I started writing poetry in high school to pass the time. After having a poem published with a 'shot in the dark' online submission, I realized I may have a knack for art in some way, but never transformed thought into further action. A friend later suggested I try rapping after I had shared a poem over the phone.”

It's a good thing he did. Asylum's flawless, natural rhythm and groove is overstepped only by his endless cleverness. Track four on “Coalesce” is titled, “Mic'd,” the music industry abbreviation for 'microphoned;' Asylum uses it as an acronym for Music Is Common Denominator. His themes often venture into the metaphysical, or even transcendental, as the album's title demonstrates ('coalesce' means to grow together or blend into one body).

Asylum himself writes of the album's message, “We are all one. We all share the same emotions: anticipation, joy, anger, fear, sadness, etc. I am portraying all of those feelings and personalities in one, just as we all can do if we let go and simply be.” Asylum even chose white for the album cover to represent the “Presence of all growing together.” Everything for him is an opportunity for symbolism.

The album opens with a simple quote spoken low and seriously: “The presence of All, looks like None at all.”

Come for the beats, stay for the intellectual refinement. Asylum's “Coalesce” is some of the most intriguing rap music the underground urban scene has witnessed in years.
