Omen - Elephant Eyes (Album)


It been a long time coming since the first announcement that he would be dropping a new album. After a few years and set backs, Omen was ready to drop his album "Elephant Eyes" and present to the world. Leading up to the project we got to see him tell his story through parody with a short skit/doc that gave us a comical look at what it took to get this album out. Today he we the get the full project ready for the masses.

We know how listeners bias can over shadow the music, seeing as he's signed with J. Cole's Dreamville. And while you can make correlation between the two[Omen & J. Cole] its best you open your ears. This album doesn't aim to for what's popular in rap at the moment as far as the 'turn up' goes. Instead we get very personal songs like "Father Figure" or analysis of the current social fight to get fame instead of actual success on "LoveDrug".

This project did take awhile to come to fruition and I do see a up hill battle with regaining the attention of listeners in a time when we're consider to have ADD toward music. But if you're aiming for a deeper story to the music and getting to know the artist through their artistry press play and enjoy.

Holing 11 tracks, Omen handles much of the production himself. Joining him are fellow Dreamville artiest Cozz and Bass, CJ Hamilton and J. Cole. Get on iTunes and stream below.
