BAY AREA, Calif. - eMusicWire -- Since the release of the album's lead single, "Speak My Language," in early 2021, Vocab Slick has been steadily building anticipation for his latest opus, Language. And now that the Bay Area emcee's latest full-length is available, he's excited for listeners to hear it not just as a piece of art for the culture, but as a vehicle for communication and understanding. That sentiment is at the core of his ethos, and it's what makes his lyrics and songwriting so engaging.

Vocab's passion for people to better understand one another is apparent as soon as you start listening to Language, and it runs through every single element of the album. Even when he's taking a moment to boast and spit some clever wordplay on tracks like "Find a Way (feat. The Grouch)" and "What It Is," it's all part of the same message.

Here's a prime example from "What It Is" of how powerful and sharp his words are: "Truth is, I'm ruthless/ And known for overdoing anything I ever thought was worth pursuing/ Y'all foolish and clueless/ Prone to being stupid to ever think I'm nothing other than superhuman, a mutant." Vocab brings a similar tenacity to other standout cuts, including the bluesy and soulful "Atonement" and the serious but playful "Stay Focused." The latter also features a guest verse from the late Zumbi of Zion I, who Vocab says "was not only a great emcee, but also a mentor and friend."
