Long Island, NY emcee and pro­du­cer B.Dvine releases highly anti­cip­ated EP titled ‘Times Have Changed.’ The 6‑track EP fea­tures Hip-Hop pion­eer and legend Erick Ser­mon, UK’s own Cuban Pete, D‑Rage, and Xavia.

Dvine dis­plays a mastered skill­set in both pro­duc­tion and rhymes to deliv­er an eclect­ic pro­ject that includes clas­sic Hip-Hop vibes, a club ante, raw word­play, and even some­thing for the ladies.  “Self­less Pride” sets the EP off and Dvine’s moves in this new age and new dawn. Not new to the game, he knows the climb and pre­pared to trek new heights. Over knock­ing bass weaved into pen­et­rat­ing pulsa­tions for a mod­ern twist, Dvine reminds the world that he’s developed from neg­at­iv­ity and now sees the big­ger pic­ture clearly. The empower­ing track sets a tone for the remain­ing tracks.

“Hush”, a worldly col­lab­or­a­tion, dic­tates for less talk and more action. Simply put Dvine, Ser­mon, Pete, and D‑Rage are win­ning bosses with receipts. The aggress­ive dom­in­a­tion flows over a riv­et­ing kal­eido­scope of cadences inten­ded to shock the core.  “Don’t Mean Nut­tin” piggy­backs off “Hush.” Dvine puts rap­pers, the game, and out­siders on blast; while they aim to impress with fal­la­cies, Dvine breaks everything down thread by thread.

“Come Alive” is the feel-good track of the EP. With alarm­ing and cos­mic sound­scapes, this infec­tious anthem is ideal for a sleep­less night out, bust­ing moves on the dance floor, or bump­ing through the city. In “Chocol­ate Syr­up”, Dvine shows off his lust­ful side with slick, yet sen­su­al pil­low talk. This is not your aver­age Net­flix and chill scen­ario, instead, Dvine com­mands his word­play right into cli­max.

Dvine lays out a vivid timeline for listen­ers in “Mr. Dreams.” He takes us back to the vul­ner­able age of 15 when music and Hip-Hop were a pas­sion then tran­scends to the moment his dreams greet real­ity. It began from dig­ging in the crates, rhym­ing, cre­at­ing beats with his own niche and twist, to rub­bing elbows with industry execs and legends.  Dvine’s lyr­ic­al calis­then­ics drives a knife into doubters and even teach­ers who labeled him as hope­less.

Over­all, ‘Times Have Changed’ embod­ies the growth of Dvine’s artistry and abil­ity to cur­ate time­less music dur­ing a peri­od where Hip-Hop is ever-chan­ging and stead­ily evolving. Stream ‘Times Have Changed’ and con­nect with B. Dvine below.
