“Uh-Huhhhhhhhh!” Wake Up Drunk rapper, Pries, is back. This time with a 19-track album titled Revenge of the Nerd, and he is back with a vengeance. Revenge of the Nerd dropped a little over a week ago on multiple sites and has already been downloaded over 11,000 times. This new project reflects his musical abilities while combining smooth, R&B vocals, precise beats, and a stylistic lyrical cadence. All of these facets making this release extremely difficult to pass up.
Pries mixes a variety of tempos and styles to form a versatile sound that appeals to his fans. The emcee embodies Colorado new era hip-hop with his laid-back style with rugged undertones. He also features a few Colorado artists including, friend, and fellow Squizzy Gang artist, Trev Rich, on a track called “Wish You Would.” Of course, it wouldn’t be a Pries album without a couple of club bangers like “Pour Some More” and turn-up certified, “Willie Bandana.” Pries showcases his multifaceted style and connects with listeners on a more personal level with tracks like “Stay Blessed” and “Dr. Jekyll.”
A sign of a true musical talent is the ability to sample pieces and transform them into something new without losing the original essence. No stranger to musical arrangements, Pries transforms old news into new news with fresh lyrics and edits.
The beauty of Revenge of the Nerd is its uncanny efforts to put the non-conventional emcee back in the game. Pries is different from the overrated gangsta rapper that has preoccupied the genre. A lot of albums never reach far because they are one-dimensional, Revenge of the Nerd although full of tracks with similarities to previous projects, reaches beyond the typical rap album. Pries dabbles into an array of sounds and transforms them with a hip-hop influence to create pieces that are true representations of the art.
With all of its success, it is only fair to give Revenge of the Nerd a listen. You will definitely be impressed. For every mood and scenario there is a track to match. Pries has once again, come through in the clutch for his fan base with a project that was well worth the wait.
