T.S.I.R (The Struggle Is Real) is a ten-track album from Bahamas-based artist Noble Barz. T.S.I.R felt different to me due to its soothing and laidback instrumentals. However, the highlight of the show was undoubtedly Noble Barz.
I’ve rarely ever seen an artist care so much about precision and delivery. Noble Barz makes every bar land. His delivery carries depth, nuance, and emotion. His rapping is not about being fast or rhythmic; it’s about sending a message and being heard. I think he accomplishes his aim thoroughly.
“Struttin” was the stand-out song for me. The spacey instrumental coupled with Noble Barz’s sweet delivery feels like a complete package. There are multiple layers of production. Barz lays down a solid verse that was woven with themes narrated through vivid storytelling. It’s poetic, calming, and thoughtful.
If you’re looking to relax and listen to substance, go for The Struggle Is Real by Noble Barz.
