Bueller Da Don - 'Cruise 2 Fame II'

Bueller Da Don. Rapper. Visionary. Consummate professional.

I'm pretty sure I've said that before but I don't care. It's the truth. It is the way you make a dream a reality. It's what separates the men from the boys. It's what makes it seem that Bueller Da Don really is cruising to fame. 

His music is self-described as "the soundtrack to success." He talks a whole lot of $#!t but it's more inspiration than it is you-cant-do-what-I-do. It's the music you (you meaning I) play when you're gettin' ready to hit the club for the night. It's feel good music about giving your best and loving hard.

Buell's progressive sound and songwriting ability should have him on radio right now. A consistent face on iTunes with each project, he's proving that his brand of music is marketable. It's really just a matter of time before a label signs him. The quality of product he's producing at this stage is remarkable.

'Cruise 2 Fame II' is an evolution from the first project in the best possible way. The most noticeable growth is in the level of musicality. The depth and breadth of the production was scaled up significantly and the introduction of singer Mike-O adds even more polish to the two tracks he takes hook duty on. Producer Hotman takes the heaviest workload with 4 tracks. Traxx Trigga and Brad M. take 2 each and Stretch Banguz, Jay Criss, Sunny Norway, White Mike and Chosen 1 fill out the rest of the album. Each producer has a distinct style and sound but the total vision is consistent. 

The album is available on iTunes so you'll have to buy into this one but do check it out and listen to the preview clips. Below, I have one of my favorite tracks from the album. "Mission 2 Hearts (Galaxy Love)" featuring and produced by Jay Criss. This is far and away the best example of the radio readiness I spoke of earlier. This record is BIG! Major props to Buell for this one.
