“It’s refreshing to see emcees broaden the subject matter without sounding forced or cliche”
- The Word Is Bond

“Quailty wise you could be listening to something on Rawkus, Rhymesayers, Stones Throw and slides in so nicely next to J-Live, MF Grimm, Common with lashings of old skool vibes. He has a special something, amazing flow with a tone that is so just so Hip-Hop.”
- Hip hop Mafia

“…a consistent and truly organic release. From the off you get the vibe straight away that his is more Timbaland boots and baggy jeans than snapbacks and skinny jeans, with its real authentic Hip-Hop boom bap feel. The rapping is tight as are the concepts but above all his flow and vocal tone are just so likeable.”
- Da Real Biz

“Special’s music has suitable substance but is instantly listenable. The Canadian rapper evokes a real old school New York vibe in his music.”
- On The Come Up TV

“Anyone on that Guilty Simpson, Ruste Juxx, Joey Badass vibe will love this guy, he’s pure non-stop Hip-Hop that bangs.”
- Rugged And Raw Dot Com

“Classic head bopping music…”
- ThaLookout

“…definitely stands out from the rest of the pack.”
- Teckzilla, Writer

“Composed rhymes, smooth soul and artistic direction, Special’s (music) is something much like his name”
-Jack O’Neill, Writer
