blood sweat tears
Words by Edward T. Bowser,

Half of y’all reading this review have given me grief over the years for being an old man trapped in a young man’s body.

Yeah, I’d rather drop stacks on Stacy Adams than the new J’s and I kinda look like George Jefferson on the dance floor. I don’t hit the Nae Nae. And y’all need to turn that stereo down after 9 p.m.! A brother has to get up early in the mornin’.

But having an old soul is more than just an excuse to complain. An old soul is a sign of wisdom.

Shaliek Rivers feels me.

Although he’s in his 20s, Shaliek possess vocals that are straight out of R&B’s glory days – and no, I’m not talking about the New Jack Swing Era. He sounds like a transplant from the era of Motown itself.
