What is absolutely impressive about Alex Mischief is his ability to craft unique, memorable characters with each consecutive release while still imbuing a sense of unity and dynamic interplay. Alex Mischief is the alter ego of Tyler Scope. Alex is a more of an immature, violent, rule breaking, slut obsessed, non pc, and abusive asshole version of Tyler Scope. And, in fact, there is a distinct relationship between both that makes Alex Mischief such a fascinating character. Alex keeps it gritty, while Tyler has also showcased his smoothed-out sophistication, exemplifying it with both his musical masterpieces and intelligent wordplay. The only sign of crossover aliases is right here on the single “Hydrogen FT. Sean Price”.
This is a perfect hip-hop opus, magnifying Alex Mischief’s fanatical rhyming expertise, which by the way has nothing to do with the stereotyped rhyming and flow your ears are accustomed to. He does something completely different in a conversational tone that is addicting.
Astonishingly, every project Tyler Scope (or should that be Alex Mischief?), undertakes is exceptional. Despite his prolificacy, this artist unquestionably regards quality over quantity, and you need not look any further than the music for proof.
With some strong projects under his belt as Tyler Scope, including “Extreme Individualism” and “The Freethought Poet” and now “Hydrogen FT. Sean Price”, as Alex Mischief, it’s hard to imagine what will come next.
Although I noticed a Aesop Rock feature in his catalog. But one thing is for sure; whatever the future holds for Alex Mischief (or should that be Tyler Scope?), you can bet that you’ll be seeing a lot of him, in one form or another.
In the meantime his dry and deadpan performance on “Hydrogen” perfectly matches that of what used to be Sean Price’s Hennessy-stained growl. They sound like the Yin and Yang of rap in action.
Alex Mischief does everything right in his own warped world on “Hydrogen FT. Sean Price” – from the production choice, the excellent lyrical wordplay he manages to untangle all over the twisted and somewhat deliberately low-key style, to the clear passionate research he undertakes in choosing his features.
In this case the deceased Sean Price. In short, When Alex Mischief does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. He’s interesting, he’s impressive, and he’s damn entertaining.
