Throughout the project you may catch a few different vibes from Sean Stylez. Track 3 ‘Thxka Than Water’ Featuring Jynx tells you he’s solid and stands his ground. Stylez’ shoutouts his block brothers confirming their bond is more like family. Its guaranteed you can count on him. Stylez also shows of his versatility with track 5 ‘No Tellin Remix’. With a slower beat you would think it would alter the energy given through the track, Stylez has proved us all wrong! Nevertheless he kept the same momentum from Track 1 to Track 10. One of my favorite tracks is Above H20. I reviewed the song on Episode 3 of #MusicMonday.That song is so encouraging and relatable to feelings most of us have everyday. The chorus speaks for itself. I would recommend you blasting this song to get your day started the right way.
Sean Stylez decided to include two bonus tracks on the tape. One of which he claims as his favorite track. It’s definitely a party song in my opinion. It had me bopping my head as soon as the beat dropped. The auto tune is on point, so crisp and clear! Even in headphones you can hear the bass pounding.

Sports was supposed to help me out the struggle but it didn’t work out. We was in our first shelter when I was just getting to 6th grade. So I chose to rap because I have the life story. I have never had it easy. I just want my moms not to have to worry about bills no more…
Take our word for it QwayDaKing is definitely making an impression on the industry. With his up tempo beat and consistent flow he’s bound to keep your attention for the entire song. His style reminds me of Tee Grizzley. Qway is from Marion, SC so of course his music has a down south swag to it. From the bass and 808s of the beat to his bars & punchlines Qway would fit right into today’s rap industry.
QwayDaKing speaks on his lifestyle of riding for his crew and never changing on them. He shouts out JBE towards the end of the song letting them know whats up!
