90 Now Album Download – A.Y.E.

aye cover

Described as “a tribute to the beats, style, slang and aura of 90s Hip-Hop”, this free self-produced album from Canada’s A.Y.E. finds the 22-year-old artist impressively capturing the feel of a rap era that had already passed by the time he was even old enough to start school.

Dusty drums, soulful horns and melodic keys bring back memories of timeless mid-90s Hip-Hop classics, whilst A.Y.E. flexes an accomplished lyrical delivery that he uses to drop jewels on everything from the struggles of ghetto living to the importance of crew love.
