San Diego based, Houston born hip hop artist Lew Houston has a new jam out called Safe. He has a southern style for sure, with a crisp, clear delivery and a “very matter of fact” way of speaking. The song features some choice lines, such as Last place cause you’re too soft, sandman get booed off, red nose like Rudolph… The track mostly has a slow, chill beat, though Houston occasionally picks up the delivery pace at certain moments for maximum effect. Production on this track is very good for an indie hip hop song. One thing I really like about it is that Houston doesn’t use a ton of processing and annoying effects on his vocals the way many rappers do. He demonstrates solid vocal presence, and I get the sense this guy is all about handlin biz.
