Raury was not like most 19 year olds when he made his debut record. The artistic lyricism blended with intricate, unique production positioned him as a much wiser artist. There is no doubt that he speaks his mind, as you will find no filtered words on this album. Fusing hip-hop with folk/soul, he finds a delicate balance between the genres, using them to convey specific emotional states. As one of the most unique songs you will hear, "Devil's Whisper" outlines the temptation Raury faces, and how he tried to overcome it.
