CEX, an artist who is known for wowing fans with his jaw-dropping freestyle ability and his penchant for stage mayhem, drops another hot disc of genre-defiling genius with Maryland Mansions (JT1090). A groundbreaking mix of glitchtronic hooks, classic party rap, and NIN-inspired darkwave crunch topped with loquacious rhymes, this is clearly an album that evidences CEX as one of the most exciting things going in American music.
