Review Summary: You really ain’t know yet?

Despite relative anonymity (no pun intended) in mainstream rap, South Florida's own Anonymuz has been slowly building up an underground legion of fans over the last few years. 2016's Vice City, his first major label release, was a grimy and bleak snapshot of the underbelly of the Miami hip-hop scene, full of intricate worldplay and innovative beats. His most recent follow-up, a five-song EP titled Urameshi, is a more fleshed out showcase of rapid-fire bars that highlights his immense vocabulary. 2019’s effort There Is No Threat continues the natural progression of Anonymuz’ impeccable ability to weave the magic from his mic through ominous instrumentals. It’s also the greatest accomplishment of his young career to date.

Building on Vice City’s refreshingly honest and creative take on life growing up as a wide-eyed young adult in the gutters of South Florida, There Is No Threat provides much of the same highly concentrated brand of musical venom. Meticulously crafted, his flow is among the very best of underground rap in both timing and rhyming. The aggressive, murky beats provide the backdrop for some absolutely phenomenal lines to dance with one another. Some excellent guest features (particularly a noteworthy appearance by fellow Florida native Denzel Curry) help provide Anonymuz with the star power he had yet to attract onto his material, and the results are stunning.

In short, There Is No Threat is a statement of perseverance and the culmination of everything Anonymuz has ever strived for. A slightly more-mainstreamed approach to his music that now utilizes catchier choruses (see ‘Fake ***’) and improved production should lead to the wider appeal and exposure that he deserves. The quality of this album speaks to the level of work that clearly went into these eleven tracks, and the sky is the limit as to where he could take his talents next. Judging by the title, he isn't worried.

if you dig the rest of his stuff make sure you check out his really early work as it’s more ambitious than his new stuff, he’s clearly trying to appeal to a wider audience now

I still like Vice City a bit more, feels more genuine to himself. But I still think this is a solid 4. One of the best rappers around that no one seems to have heard of.
