If you enjoy the clever, ambitious, and hard-hitting lyrics of the man who's become a rap figure of the 2010s, Drake, then you'll definitely enjoy a rapper whose lyrical skill and creativity challenge his. Hailing from Louisville and Chicago, rapper Jaureal has released a mixtape titled Practice along with DJ Slikk. The album's title is aptly named and if the lyrical quality and flow of Jaureal's rap ability in this mixtape is only practice, then I am definitely waiting to see what he plays like in the game. Knowing Jaureal personally from my hometown, Louisville, KY, his style, more particularly his love of Christian Audigier and his Ed Hardy collection always stood out to me. He's been featured in my fashion sets before in previous posts. Always one to be attentive to his appearance and keen on the latest cutting-edge style, Jaureal' sartorial savoir-faire rests in his fondness for uniqueness, a personal quality that describes him as well. He's a member of the Epsilon Rho chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Incorporated and a graduate of Western Kentucky University, and although considered a "pretty boy", Jaureal doesn't mind getting his mic dirty to slay would-be rappers with verses like "Yeah ballin' how I'm supposed to be/You tell her throw it in the bag you just talkin' groceries/Don't bring that girl close to me/That ain't what you wanna to do/You be off with Pleasure P/Singin' bout you number two" The mixtape goes pretty hard and overall the tracks are reminiscent of Drake. Jaureal's rap game is off to a promising start and his talent is more appealing than any other rapper from Louisville. No one ever said a pretty boy in the streets couldn't be a pretty nasty boy on the beat. Check out and download Jaureal's mixtape Practice here.
