Mixtape Alert: Isaiah Rashad’s Cilvia Demo

The Life As Shay Report:

Can I take a break from the “mainstream” news? I have to tell ya’ll about this Mixtape that’s been in my ears everyday for the last couple of weeks…”CILVIA” by Isaiah Rashad. Have you heard of Isaiah Rashad? If not, it’s cool…in the next few seconds I am going to take you from not knowing Rashad to being one of his enamored fans. Signed to TDE, it becomes apparent that TDE has a signature sound…”dope ish only.” And when I say ‘dope’ I don’t mean run-of-the-mill, trendy. I am talking timeless, universal, undeniable music. Put it like this, you could play it for ya moms…she would like it too.

I covered his track with labelmate, SZA, “Ronnie Drake” a while back and if I thought I liked the two as a musical duo on “Ronnie Drake”, I was taken aback by how flawlessly they flowed together on several other tracks featured on this tape.On the 2014 Grammy’s red-carpet, SZA was caught bragging on “Cilvia” before it was released…and she was right, it’s a classic!

You have to listen and tell me what you think. You can purchase the tape on iTunes–> https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/cilvia-demo/id807204094
