[Review] SeT – “AuRA”

AuRA

“In parapsychology and many forms of spiritual practice, an aura is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object (like the halo or aureola in religious art). The depiction of such an aura often connotes a person of particular power or holiness. It is said that all living things (including humans) and all objects manifest such an aura. Often it is held to be perceptible, whether spontaneously or with practice: such perception is at times linked with the third eye of Indian spirituality. It has also been described as a map of the thoughts and feelings surrounding a person.”

- Bowers, Barbara, Ph.D: What Color Is Your Aura? Personality Spectrums for Understanding and Growth – 1989

You can interpret the meaning AuRA however you choose to look at it. For SeT, it’s the power of harnessing the power of positive energy, coinciding with the negative energy. You can’t have the good, without the bad. His named derived from the Egyptian God, SeT. Who was employed by Ra, as the God of Chaos. Outgoing, philosophical,intellectual and innovative, SeT embodies the traits of the Egyptian God, based on his fascination with Egyptian mythology. Having a long line of talented musicians in his family, it’s almost as if SeT was born to pursue music. Sit down and speak with him for twenty minutes, you’ll see he is no ordinary rapper. The thought process he has about everything is on another level. From the energy we give off, to any topic at hand. AuRA, a 10 track LP from SmashMouth Music Group’s own, speaks volumes on quality over quantity. One song in and you can feel the presence SeT gives on the mic. A heavy one. He’s no newbie to making music and gives you an almost, tell-all with AuRA. Putting his life on the line in pursuit of something that means everything to him. There’s hidden meaning, with unconcealed truth all throughout the album. Having sat on it since it came out, taking it in slowly, I found the power of the music SeT provides on this is impeccable. Mood music for the soul. Take in SeT’s album AuRA as we go on a track by track break down.

When Jay-Z dropped, Reasonable Doubt, back in 1996, his future protege was just getting his feet wet in the rap game. Check out this recently surfaced video of a 19 year old Kanye West spitting a quick verse during the opening party for Fat Beats in NYC-August of 1996. DJ Eclipse, the former general manager of the Fat Beats New York store recently spoke on the vintage footage with Complex magazine. When looking back at the video, Eclipse, mentioned seeing clips of prominent 96′ artists such as Lord Finesse,Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq and many more. But what took Eclipse by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.
