Chris Rivers Has That Medicine for Heads That Have Been Hurting From Wack Hip-Hop (Mixtape)

2015 has been the year that Chris Rivers has stepped out of the shadow of being Big Pun’s son and shown the world he shines on his own. For the last few months, Rivers has owned Fridays with a series of blistering freestyles and videos. While many of his weekly wonders have been verses over classic Hip-Hop beats, several have also been original compositions from his forthcoming mixtape, Medicated Consumption. Now, the day has arrived and Rivers has released the full project.

Rivers, like his father, is celebrated for an aggressive and complex rhyme style. However, Medicated Consumption shows his range. There are laid-back songs like “What You Came For” and “Black Box,” storytelling verses like his Bonnie & Clyde themed “I Just Wanna Rap” duet with Nitty Scott, MC, and barn-burners like “Riding With My G’s” with Jarren Benton. The project also features verses from several Sheek Louch, Cory Gunz and more. Check out the full stream and download.
