ALLEN GATES: “The Proof” An Album With An Original Edge!

Allen Gates found his calling with words and used them as way to communicate through music at an early age. Born in St. Louis, he took his first vulnerable plunge performing for his peers on a class trip. The applause and respect from this hypercritical young crowd validated his talent. “At that point I realized I was good and I needed to take this seriously,” says Allen. Influenced by LL Cool J, DMX and Jay Z, Allen has been grinding the hip hop scene for more than eight years.

His music hit Mediabase Indie Charts at #9 in the United States with the song “Movie Star, featuring Chrishan. Allen left his day job with the 2011 World Series Champions St. Louis Cardinals to pursue a championship of his own. His first mixtape, titled “The Track Meet,” debuted in 2011.

Following a robbery that left him hospitalized in August 2011, Allen was more determined than ever and in the studio the very next day. Allen won the drjays.com 2010 Fresh Faces of Spring modeling contest and was also inducted as an honorary alderman for the City of St. Louis in January 2011.

Like many Hip Hop lovers of his generation, Allen Gates has both a passion and respect for the musical element of Hip Hop. Like the legends who have come before him, Allen showcases his strong passion for the culture through his gifted lyrical prowess and emotional delivery on “The Proof.”

The album is excellent featuring clever autobiographical lyrics and a stellar musical production. I’m glad that Allen did not create some unauthentic persona or pretend to be a gangsta, his lyrics represent who he is and what he knows, which make his songs infinitely more interesting.

Allen Gates is proof that you don’t have to be hard or anti-social to make a statement as a Hip-Hop artist. He is breathing new life into the game right now with his positive attitude. Moreover, Allen proves that he is a talented rapper who can maintain a steady and catchy flow on almost any beat.

“The Proof” album is able to speak to people on many levels. Here Allen poured his heart out in every song and left it there. This album is definitely a great contribution to indie hip-hop, which is hanging on by a thread. Considering how the Hip-hop market is flooded by so many untalented dudes pushing dozens of mixtapes all over the web.

The beats are well made, and every song contains great lyrics which could work great as singles. Allen has a lyrical style, that in places is nontraditional to the standard hip-hop formula, but it works and it’s great, giving him an original edge.

I think Allen Gates has a great career ahead of him as a rapper, and his talent is evident in this remarkable album. Standouts on this 16-track album include; “Prove It,” “It is What It Is,” “On Me,” “What You Wanna Do,” “Chit Chat,” “My Money,” “Havarti Dreams,” “Chasing Dreams,” and “Hello.”

If you love Hip-hop and are tired of hearing about big rims and fast cars, then this is the album you’ve been waiting for.

You’ll quickly become hypnotized by observing Allen Gates’s skills on “The Proof.” Finally here’s a rapper you can understand. His very crisp, sharp deliveries and great musicality will easily penetrate your senses.

Allen’s music is a mixture of all his influences and you can hear it, yet all the time he sounds very honest and humble. Those characteristics will almost certainly help forge a great artist in the making.
