Vell Bakardy is a rarity -- a rapper from the midwest, Kansas City to be exact. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean he has new perspectives and insights to offer. Like many other gangsta rappers, he rolls out the standard tales of crime, violence, sex, and players. Occasionally, he has an interesting insight or turn of phrase, yet he isn't capable of making the bland backing tracks interesting. Genuine Liqua Hits shows promise, but it simply isn't compelling enough to warrant a listen by anyone but devoted gangsta rap fans.
