Boston Hip-Hop mainstay Lucky Dice has been a force in his hometown’s scene for more than two decades, dropping a slew of notable mixtapes, singles, and guest features. And with ‘M.O.S.A. (Memoirs of a Starving Artist),’ he channels his experience and discerning talents into a passionately crafted project that serves as his proper debut album.
The arrival of this winter’s raw and honest “Memoirs” revealed that Dice was ready to bring his album to the masses—and yes, it’s finally here.
The end result is an early contender for one of the year’s best rap releases, because Dice weaves a gripping tale across these 11 tracks. Like music blog Ohestee wrote about “Memoirs”: “All you hip-hop lovers are gonna vibe hard to this one.” – Digital Media 360
