Derek Christoff AKA D-Sisive, the Canadian rapper hailing from Toronto, Ontario hits us with a collection of tracks under the title "I'll Change Your Life If You Change Mine". Best known for his Juno-nominated EP "The Book", D-Sisive shows us an 11 track album featuring a few songs that have been previously released such as "Fat Cage", "6 Inch God", and "Violent J", as well as a ton of new cuts that are sure to have any D-Sisive fan jumping for joy. It is also worth noting that the digital release seems to be sub-titled "aboyinaroom may".
The digital release starts out with a creepy intro in the form of a skit titled "I Hope I'm Gonna Be Ok", where the artist asks himself just that, then ends it off stating that "2015 is going to be quite a ride", setting the listener up for the adventure ahead. The second track entitled "The Scientology Samba" starts off smooth, and with the production and vocals gaining ground, the energy builds up before giving way to a groove type feel. "Lil' Bow Wow" sports D-Sisive ripping apart a boom bap beat, throwing out bar after bar. If you're a fan of straight rhymes, this is going to be the track for you. "Violent J" holds a dark overtone in regards to the production, and the vocals themselves, which appear to be fit the title quite well. "6 Inch God", a hilarious take on Drake's "6 God", has Derek flowing smoothly over an undeniably classic instrumental as one of the stand out tracks on the album. "Gabagool" & "The Furious Funkster" have D-Sisive delivering his signature style, before "Fat Cage" comes around with Derek killing a quirky instrumental that just sounds so right. The second to last cut "Basquiat Don't Breakdance" has to be one of my favorite cuts on the album, with the track only being 1:09, D-Sisive flows all over the beat with this head bopping track. The closing song is titled "Peter's Tits [Lesbian Haircut (Win Butler)], and is quite fitting to close out the album, with its gentle almost optimistic feel. D-Sisive is gearing up for 2015 being quite a ride.
