REVIEW: Luckydabo$$

Luckydabo$$ is originally from the Ivory Coast which is in West Africa. The Ivory Coast is a nation that speaks French. As a young kid, Yovan aka Luckydabo$$ played a few roles in small movies in school and performed as a music artist a few times on stage. Luckydabo$$ has a unique style and he talks about today’s issues that we see in our society. He also brings the good times and rap in French and English. Lucky is also a college student with a major in economics. He also has a certificate in Architecture, real estate. He is an engineering technician and love being an I.T . His lyrics are inspiring, his voice is for the people.

The music on Me$$enger is French and English in places, and if you don’t speak both it can be hard to tell the opposite language parts, but the music goes with it all and sorts it out for the most part. These are chants, raps, songs, tunes, whatever you want to call them. He has a good sense of humor, but also gets explicit when he has-to and doesn’t seem to care what outcome it has on his music. You either appreciate that kind of thing or you don’t. If not, this is not for you. But it cuts the standard within, if you do. It’s all good from where he’s standing.

If you go to his website you can hear the tracks among his music on it. The first track is “Go Get It” and he sounds like he’s going after his dreams and catching them. Why not rap about it if you can express yourself the way he does, especially in dual languages. This has a lot of global radiance jumping off it, and it should be heard far and wide. If it’s not one of his best tracks than I need to listen more myself. It’s an infectiously fine rap, with not a lot of French language to be heard. I’m not sure if that is good or bad, not knowing which comes of better wo which. It’s just a good track no matter which side of the pond you’re on.

“True Story” is about getting a job and keeping it. Doing himself is what it’s really all about, and anyone listening can sense that much about it. This isn’t as good as the former, but it’s nothing like it either. And it’s still a good track, just not as contained to a song format. He’s giving advice whether you like it or not, and that’s some of his magic if you ask me. This could be a worse track, as it still leaves me compelled to describe what it has-to offer. I just wouldn’t rate it among his best work, after hearing some of it. But I’ll take it, rather than leave it for all it’s worth in the bunch.

Another track worth mentioning is “Forever” where he sings a duet that comes on as a surprise, and the consensus is that this is an excellent track. The cut itself would be good either way, but she adds the right bells and whistles to it for an overall outstanding track. There is only a small amount of French on this one, and I was able-to make out the rest enough to enjoy this. It would sound good in the car, at the club or just around the house, it’s that sweet. The whole thing is taken out by a lovely piano, and you get treated to some music to go with what is essentially a pop song at the end of the day. “Happy” along with “It’s Been A Long Day” and “Friday” all have their moments too, and other guests are involved, to names that can’t be credited without knowledge of them. But it’s worth seeking out further in that department if you really want to follow the work of Luckydabo$$. You’ll get more female vocals and a chance to hear his versatile vocal style in the process if you give these numbers a listen, and you’ll get more of that nice piano too. It helps even out what is most syncopated beats and loops being rapped over. Those musical moments help all the-more, on what are already some great rhymes.
