Despite Be Very Aware being BVA MC’s long anticipated solo album, his reputation was already formed across nearly a decades worth of respectable material. Wide-acclaim for his performances in collaborate groups Three Amigos, The Four Owls and Brothers Of The Stone essentially daunted the release with an undying expectation to fulfil from the very beginning. With this knowledge embedded even prior to the release date, Be Very Aware ensures to quell the doubters and silence the sceptics. Entirely produced by Leaf Dog, Illinformed & Amdek and featuring verses from Leaf Dog, Fliptrix, Verb T, Rag N Bone Man, Dirty Dike, Kashmere, Cracker Jon, Smellington Piff & DJ Sammy B-Side the album only enhances as it plays through, the better-known contributors providing knowledgeable originality whilst the lesser-known contributors present exciting prospects into their future potential. BVA bares his soul with authentically intuitive rhymes from start to finish.
