Review

Cecil Otter is a member of the Doomtree crew that is quite successful in the states, "Rebel yellow" is Cecil´s first official solo project and if you´re not a fan of hip hop it´s rather easy to label this as average hip hop music but I think it´s not.
Cecil is showing lots of love for genres like southern rock, folkrock and R&B on "Rebel yellow" - and yes he´s a rap artist but let´s focus on the music here.
If Bob Dylan was a hip hop artist, then he might´ve sounded like Cecil Otter.
It´s nice to hear a rapper that doesn´t use the "ho" word all the time or thinks he´s a cool gangsta, Cecil is intelligent and when I hear the really good "Boxcar diaries" I want to go as far as saying he deserves the same fame as Eminem.
But there are not enough songs that moves me, the instrumental "Duel" is cool sure and there might be a few more that would make a great EP but not as a full album.
