Mixtape Review: Marsha Ambrosius - Yours Truly

Posted by Mack of Sound-Savvy On 12:30 AM


Artist: Marsha Ambrosius
Album: Don Cannon Presents Marsha Ambrosius - Yours Truly
Release Date: 12/2008

If I could bundle up a gift and give it to all my readers out there, it would be Yours Truly… Not me, (see… some of ya’ll nasty!) but I’m talking about that songstress chick that dropped a mixtape that’s so hot it blazed my platinum headphones!! There is only one reason for this mixtape to be SO SICK, and her name is Marsha Ambrosius. You probably know her as one half of Floetry, and if you’re as savvy as you should be, you’ll know that her writing skills are beyond amazing, which is why she’s apart of the chart-topping KnightWritaz team with Mario, Oak and Sterling Simms.

A few years ago, following the success of Floetry’s last album, Marsha inked a deal with hip-hop legend Dr. Dre to release a solo album – but don’t call it a breakup, she’s just doin’ her thing right now. Yours Truly is a shining testament of her individual talent, highlighted by her sultry sexy voice, and her ability to flip notes over the hardest hip-hop beats. I consider this joint to be a banger start-to-finish but special highlights on this joint include Sunshine featuring Little Brother, Dat Shit with Busta Rhymes (FIRE!!), Forget About You, Impossible and Take Care. The joint that’s been getting the most play is Co-Star which was rumored to be her album’s title, but anything’s possible. For the fans of her slower work with Floetry like Sometimes You Make Me Smile, you’ll wanna check for the interlude Some Type of Way.

What I really love about this joint is how raw it is and how much energy it channels. She’s got one of the sweetest voices of our era, but yet she rattles off some of the hardest lines with such natural swag. 2009 should see the release (finally) of her actual album, but I swear if this mixtape was on shelves, it might break some records! Right now, it seems that her camp is remaining rather tight-lipped about the album, its release date, title, and any confirmed tracks. If you loved her work with Floetry, or even if you didn’t, now is the time to reacquaint yourself with the songstress, Marsha Ambrosius. Trust me, this joint DELIVERS!
