Brace yourselves, hip-hop heads, because The MC Type, the undisputed king of satirical rap, is back with a vengeance. In the tumultuous landscape of modern rap, where authenticity is often traded for trends and conformity reigns supreme, one artist stands defiantly against the tide. The MC Type, the irreverent wordsmith extraordinaire, makes his triumphant return with “Lucky Silverback,” an album that not only marks his comeback but also serves as a scathing rebuke to the shackles of cancel culture.

For those uninitiated, The MC Type is no stranger to the rap game. Hailing from the vibrant musical melting pot of Seattle, WA, he first rose to prominence during his prolific era of 2007-2014. Back then, his antics on stage, coupled with his razor-sharp lyricism, earned him a legion of devoted fans as he crisscrossed the nation, sharing stages with luminaries like Prof, Grieves, and Mac Lethal. However, just as quickly as he emerged, The MC Type vanished from the scene, opting to pursue a career in TV commercial writing. But true artists are never truly dormant; their creativity simmers beneath the surface, waiting for the perfect moment to erupt. And erupt it has, with “Lucky Silverback,” a tour de force that sees The MC Type at his most audacious and unapologetic best.

At the helm of this sonic odyssey is the enigmatic Canadian producer Pen Pointz, whose 90s boom bap beats serve as the perfect backdrop for MC Type’s lyrical onslaught. From the moment the needle drops on the opening track, “Hello Again,” it’s clear that this is not your average rap album. The MC Type’s trademark wit and biting satire permeate every track, leaving listeners simultaneously nodding in agreement and shaking their heads in disbelief.

The album kicks off with the infectious energy of “John Wayne Gacy,” a chilling yet strangely catchy twist to the infamous serial killer. From there, we’re taken on a rollercoaster ride of absurdity with tracks like “Party Bug” featuring the prodigious A-F-R-O, and the irreverent “Whoopee Cushion,” which is guaranteed to elicit a few chuckles.

But “Lucky Silverback” is more than just a collection of jokes set to music. Tracks like “Full Life Crisis” featuring the legendary Sage Francis, and “Over the Influence” with the incomparable P.O.S, delve into deeper themes of existential angst and societal disillusionment. It’s a testament to The MC Type’s versatility as an artist that he can seamlessly transition from crazy humor to cutting introspection without missing a beat. One moment you’ll be snorting with laughter, the next pondering the deeper meaning that lingers beneath the surface.

Of course, no The MC Type album would be complete without a healthy dose of controversy. “Whoopee Cushion” and “Sex Cymbals” (featuring Billy the Fridge) take the absurdity factor to eleven, injecting pure, unadulterated humor into the album.  Meanwhile, “F Boi”, “Folding Chair” (featuring Greg Cypher and Blueprint) and “That’s Gay!!!” showcase MC Type’s ability to craft intricate rhyme schemes that would make even the most seasoned lyricists envious.

The MC Type tackles taboo subjects head-on, flipping societal norms on their head with gleeful abandon. It’s a bold move in an era where social, cultural and political correctness reigns supreme, but then again, when has The MC Type ever been one to play it safe? As the album draws to a close with the haunting strains of “Irish Goodbye,” it’s clear that MC Type is back with a vengeance. “Lucky Silverback” is not just a comeback album; it’s a manifesto for artistic freedom in an increasingly sanitized world. So, buckle up and prepare to be taken on a wild ride through the twisted mind of The MC Type. You won’t regret it.

“Lucky Silverback” is more than just a collection of banging beats and witty rhymes. It’s a rallying cry for artists everywhere, a reminder that true art thrives on pushing boundaries and sparking conversations, even if those conversations make us a little uncomfortable. So crank up the volume, embrace the outrageous, and let The MC Type’s lyrical middle finger fly. After all, a little laughter, even when laced with satire, is the best medicine in these increasingly humorless times.

The vocals were recorded by Reece Muir at Crescendo Studios in Auckland, New Zealand, and Randy Ross at Undercaste Studios in Seattle, WA.
