Stik Figa – Central Standard Time [album] (w/ Elzhi, Homeboy Sandman, Quelle Chris, L’Orange, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, Exile, Notttz, !llmind)
Central Standard Time, the Topeka, KS native’s second official Mello Music Group release, is a meditation on struggles new, old, and eternal. Stik Figa’s rhymes remain intricate yet accessible, the words interlocking to create fresh meanings. Every verse displays his hard-won honesty. Though the pains are personal, the moments are strikingly familiar. These are the songs you play when you’re tired of being told to turn up.
