File Info: (14 tracks, 96.5 MB, includes art)
About: With the release of his new solo album, Sold On Survival, Optix16 has successfully created an audio documentation of distrust for authority, faith in optimism, and enjoyment of the simpler things in life. Long time cohort of Minneapolis rap team Enemy Entropist, Optix16 has broken away in proper solo fashion with an album that never falls short of delivering the goods. His verses are alive with vocal trickery and seem to perpetuate themselves on a wager of basic versus complex. SOS.
