There’s a much greater or more epic feel to this awesome collection of tracks “DIARY OF A CRIME BOSS V2” by “NOTORIOUS CAVALI” than the simple hip hop introduction first seems to imply. Even during those introductory moments, as the soundscape plays out around you, the leading voice has a certain depth and sense of anticipation within it that draws your attention from afar.

The instrumentation reaches new heights of energy and expression, and that leading voice reaches even greater personal heights that help see you rising up with the artist in the heat of the moment.

The song’s structure means that the numerous sections work hard to keep a sense of movement alive and well. NOTORIOUS CAVALI’s vocals meander throughout and never fail to carry the sentiment or the notes of the moment with strength and genuine passion. Even with this clear level of skill though, her delivery is delicate – emotionally on point but smooth and gentle; in keeping with the feel of the soundscape.
