On Don’t Hurt ‘Em, PonyPakputs the bass in your face, replicating a heavy car thumping beat with ‘electronika’ toys in the background. They are paired with cocksure lyrics like as “My verbal neurotoxins destroy your body language, and rip apart paragraphs with lyrical anguish.”
At the other end of the spectrum, Splash proves a showcase for deep house music from the underground sounds of Chicago, featuring urban rhyming with syncopated sounds of old school.
The Real Mc Coy has a deep soul R&B sound merged with deep blues and a rap style that is smooth and engaging.
Splash II Remix, a thumping dance track merges with hot urban rhyming lyrics and metaphorical language and takes house music to another level with a cool motif synthesizer and an organic keyboard dance sound...
The 12 original tracks that make up Words Are Power: Volume 1 are filled with raw honesty sheathed in hope. The opening track, This is Chicago, pays homage to PonyPak’s hometown and its deep-rooted people. By calling out street names and neighborhoods and using slang like "land of the ballers and champagne callers,” he gives a nod to the local scene. The use of ‘mafia sound’ and Spanish guitar is also a tribute to Chi’s rich history and diversity.
