Release Date: 11.10.2013
Released By: Obese Records Distribution
Writers Block is the debut album from emcee/producer Never Settle of the DVS CREW.
Originally completed in 2008, many of the tracks have been re-made or remixed for this 2013 release through Obese Distribution. The album comprises of a collection of the Never Settle‘s best songs recorded in the formative stages of his beat production and lyric writing, giving the album a raw, untainted aesthetic, but with undeniable presence of extreme talent.
The majority of the album was produced and performed by Never Settle, with the exception of two tracks. ‘The Inner Strength’, which features a verse from fellow DVS crew member Quick Smart, and track ‘Numerous Grams’ which was produced by Musk.
The album talks about searching for truth and purpose, about depression, drug and alcohol dependence, mental illness and conspiracy theories. It also talks about overcoming negativity through a love for hip hop and music in general, with a couple of fantasy based story telling tracks thrown in for good measure.
