The rapper and songwriter known as the Point Shown has released his latest full-length album, “The Quietest Survivalist.” The LP has been proudly published on the Droppin Hits Gang Ent / iH2D / iHipHop Distribution independent music labels respectively. A roundly comprehensive album from the artist also sometimes known as Young Denzel, “The Quietest Survivalist” contains approximately one hour and 20 minutes of in-your-face hip hop in no fewer than 17 original tracks. Shadowy, aggressive rap music with heavy doses of urban poetry threaded throughout, “The Quietest Survivalist” by the Point Shown is a rap record for the modern era.
The Point Shown (often stylized as an exclamation: ‘The Point Shown!’) cites as main artistic influences Nas, AZ, Wu-Tang Clan, the Roots, Ice Cube, Scarface, Bun B, Outkast, Boosie Bad-Azz, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Wilson Pickett, the Stylistics, the Temptations, Isaac Hayes, the Jackson Five, the Emotions, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamilton, L.L. Cool J, 50 Cent, and Eminem.
Of these, perhaps the most striking similarities can be drawn between Nas and “The Quietest Survivalist” by the Point Shown. Fans of Nas have reason to be enthusiastic about this latest offering from the Point Shown, as the styles of the rappers have much in common. The Point Shown’s lines and rhymes are densely packed and often blend from one beat into the next and sometimes even into the next bar. His songs are often highly narrative and always lead by Point Shown’s charismatic delivery.
Speaking of the theme of his latest album, the Point Shown writes, “My message to listeners is to feel my raw energy of hip-hop lyrics overtaking the original beats that are infused with street elements from the east coast that can reach out to down south, mid-west, west coast and international listeners and appeal to all fans.”
The Point Shown grew up in Philadelphia and began writing songs in the late 1990s. He appeared on Merk Beats’ classic “Philly Freestyles” mixtape series, and began producing his own music under the mentoring of Beats, himself. He has appeared onscreen and at venues across the United States. He often performs for charitable events, perhaps most notably for the Lupus Foundation.
“The Quietest Survivalist” by the Point Shown is available online worldwide.
