After one compilation album in 2008 (Go Hard or Go Home...), one solo album in 2010 (2 Weeks Notice!), one instrumental project in 2011 (Beatin' Up the Block, Vol.1), and several mixtapes over the years, The Real J.Walker! is back with his 2013 sophmore LP, a reinvented sound, and innovative lyrics, as stated, "I don't drop albums anymore, I drop audiobooks," and "Ezoterik : : Audiobook#1" is his first entry as a lyrical and poetic author.
Ezoterik unfolds to a rhythm from chapter to chapter, starting with the preface and ending with the epilogue, just as a bestseller would. The entire project is handcrafted, written, and produced by the author himself. Opening with the titled track "Preface : : Ezoterik," TRJW! wastes no time setting the tone with hard hitting drums and horns as he flows, "it's instrumental that I jog mentals, like fundamentals, simply don't wanna miss it mane, it's detrimental..."
He then teams up with Houston's lyrical underground legend K-Rino the Wizard to serve subpoenas on "Chapter 03 : : Sleepin' On Me" and "Chapter 06 : : HyberNation" sheds light on his whereabouts since his previous solo release. As one of the most powerful and inspiring songs of his career, "Leap of Faith" is bound to touch the soul of the masses as it encourages one to make the sacrifice and follow their dreams.
As always, The Real J.Walker! goes out with a bang! Taking it to the streets, not for street-cred, but for a street banging historical cypher, accompanied by 20 of Houston's most lyrical emcees, on the last chapter of the audiobook "Epilogue : : Catastrophik." "Ezoterik : : Audiobook#1" is sure to strike a nerve, motivate, inspire, and provoke a deep thought in every listener. By the way, the hard copy is on the way and he just may pop out of it... Stay tuned!
