Chicago rapper Ronnie Rage has had the attention of many for a while now, and when he drops something new, it’s like he gets into a different bag—elevating his sound constantly. Continuing to build his ever-growing catalog, the budding artist comes through with his impressive sophomore album “[anti.vers],” a follow-up to his 2021 offering “Born Outside.” In “[anti.vers],” Ronnie juxtaposes real-life experiences with the fantastical nature of outer space. This futuristic theme can be heard through the production supplied by MONEYFLEX, noevdv, DARKBOY, THEOGOTIT, and more—and seen on the album art cover as well.
At a runtime of 27-minutes, in its entirety, “[anti.vers]” is a project full of Instagram-worthy caption lyrics that show off Ronnie’s wit. Standout lines like, “I just flew to Houston just to see if you could dance” on “Onyx,” or “plug must work for Uber with how fast that n***a pull up” on “Exodus,” showcase Ronnie’s catchy lyrics taking center stage at all times.
Dropping “Exodus” and “Tiptoe/Snottynose” leading up to the project, Ronnie Rage has managed to build the momentum needed to hit this project out of the park. “[anti.vers]” sounds like a body of work from an artist who has become comfortable with who he is. The past year showed immense growth for Ronnie, not only in his musical ability but in fan support, and I think that gives him more room to do exactly what he wants with his music.
