van·i·ty/ˈvanətē/Noun 1. Excessive pride in or admiration of one's own appearance or achievements. “The Vanity” is a recorded free album by Ypsilanti Michigan’s’ own, Sigidy. Sigidy has gained a loyal following as a local act and has released the album in hopes of spreading his fan base to a broader geographic scale.
The album kicks off with the heavily guitar filled “Vanity Interlude”. Sig uses his freestyling abilities to draw the listener in as he simply goes for the jugular with the first track. “Welcome” is the formal greeting to the album as the Morris Blackwell produced track gives us a taste of Brazilian music infused with hip hop. “Endurance” gives us a taste of the swag Sigidy possesses as he takes us on a ride through his vivid imagination. When criticized for his lack of stoner songs and chill music, Sig had reached out to his friend and LOCKDOWN RECORDS partner in crime J-Fly for “High on Mountain”. “The track sounds JUST like a weed song! But, if you really listen you’ll hear the true message within” says Sigidy himself. “R.A.H” also known as “RATCHETASSHOES” is every man’s testament to the distaste for trifling women. “Rolling like a Band” and “Teach You How to Swag” are energetic recordings of swag manifested into audio sound; they’re produced by B.e-Z. When his critics always chastised Sig for his lack of ladies jams, he gives them “2 Step”, the extremely smooth 2-steppers anthem features Louisville Kentucky rebel Dom B. The album gets progressively interesting especially with “How That Make You Feel”. The B.e-Z produced track is truly a minute taunt to any sensitive and vulnerable person who may hear it. The T-Streetz produced “Money Talks” is every rappers vocal expression of their hunger for and ability to make one thing…MONEY. The alcoholic’s anthem, “Buzzin” is a verbal display of the wild world of drinking. As the album appears to be nearing its end, Sig slaps us all across the mouth with the B.e-Z produced “Dennis Rodman”. “Dennis Rodman” is easily one of the most energetic and explosive songs from the entire state of Michigan. After the high of “Dennis Rodman”, “Girl” is Sigidy’s dedication to that special girl that he has intentions for. Sigidy ties a bow on the project with the highly emotional “My Vanity”. The song is a brief wrap up of everything that was a progressive year for Sigidy; also known as the “altered ego”. Enjoy “The Vanity”.
