Young N Reckless is a Hip-Hop group that consists of two members Cacalacky (Cacky) originally from North Carolina and Jirz Stizz (Jirz) originally from New Jersey. The group Young N Reckless met in late 2002, when the duo decided they were ready to take their talents to a whole new level and join the Hip Hop industry. With a passion for music and a natural way with words, the duo began to focus on ways to perfect their craft and develop into the artists they wanted to become.
“Every song was drawn from inspiration and real life,” said Cack of Young N Reckless. “We didn’t want to have one hit record or a couple good songs. With songs like “Shame On Em,” “Small World BIG EGO,” “Love or Lust,” and “Peace Of Mind,” we were able to best describe our experiences which allowed us to be as creative as our minds let us.”
“Imagine That” is the concept of turning whatever you envision into reality,” said Jirz of Young N Reckless. “With our ideas and passion for music we were able to creatively put together a great body of work that represents the effect our music is going to have on popular culture.”
There’s some albums you just vibe to right away, and then there’s some you start liking after a few listens. “Imagine That” falls into the former category. Upon your first listen you will be bobbing your head to the beats with a smile on your face. The majority of rap is being plagued by mediocre emcees who care more about their chain and street cred than the lyrics they allow to flow from their mouths. Young N Reckless doesn’t fall into this trap.
Their latest album did not disappoint and totally exceeded my expectations. The whole album from start to finish is a blessing to the game. They blend in a lot of styles, patterns and beats as they create their definite hip hop flavor along with some soulful rhythm & blues and even reggae tones.
In the end, this whole product just works. The beats, the production, the blend, the writing, the stories and the concepts. The winning ingredient to “Imagine That” however, is the balance. Covering a wide spectrum of topics and issues, Young N Reckless maintains equilibrium between consciousness and intellectualism as well as care-free living. With this album, they have successfully crafted a blueprint that will certainly influence and re-kindle hip-hop’s flickering light, by sparking and inspiring the minds of their contemporaries.
Of the sixteen tracks featured on the album, the standouts are thick and plentiful like: “Put Her On The Team”, “Everywhere We Go”, “Shame On Em”, “Serious”, “For The Love”, “Love Or Lust”, “Role Play” and “Imagine That”. The latest single “Shame on Em” which was written by Cack and Jirz, can be heard at here.
To put it bluntly, this album is one of the coolest albums you’ll hear in a while. Young N Reckless blow the roof off with their wordplay, and they shine on every track, over some very creative productions. The duo have a bright future ahead of them, as they got something different and important going on here.
