Omega the Poet’s “Down in the East” makes for laid-back lyrical listening.

Soft-spoken words drizzled over power-punctuated beats and guitar… Omega’s on fire.

“But the time for that is done…”

Smoke escapes your lips and splits in cool air.

Traced in its cloud are memories; pictures worth words you haven’t got.

Piercing the smog, she steps into your picture. Smoke fits snug around you both.

“…We’ll have a girl and I hope she’s like her mom…”

“Down in the East” is down with the sweetness; heartfelt and down to Earth. Touches of Tupac in his enunciation, Omega broaches topics steeped in sentiment. Love; the long-lasting kind.

Dampened guitar chords branch out over the beat – keeping icy-chilled cadence dressed in melancholy soul. The melody is a charming, careful choice. Very fitting for the song.
