Rapper K.I.N.E.T.I.K. delivers his third and final “Lost Tape”, titled The Kinesis Thesis Vol. III. Initially released back in June of 2012, this release marks when the artist discovered his true self, as this came not too long after the group he was in dissolved.
Once again on his own as an artist and with a chip on his shoulder, K.I.N.E.T.I.K. approached his craft at the time as if he had something to prove. 9-tracks deep, the listener is greeted by K.I.N.E.T.I.K. in his rawest and possibly best form.
On the Micall Parknsun-produced Here We Go, K.I.N.E.T.I.K. picks spots and licks shots with a relentless flow jam-packed with posturing punchlines and irreverent humor. On the Year Of The Underdog Remix; he is joined by his rhyme writer partners Jaunty and K-Nite 13 to tell stories of their respective come ups over TE1’s mysterious yet funky get down.
Fatherhood finds K.I.N.E.T.I.K. taking absent and inactive Dads to the task and scolding them for their lack of commitment before penning a heartfelt verse to his yet to be born child. If and when he or she arrives, it is bound to be an emotional moment.
The album is rounded out with Number 3, where the former Energy Man explores the significance of the number with abstract wit and reflective aplomb. Dialogue and digits get busted wide open as K.I.N.E.T.I.K. skillfully brings the trilogy to a rousing end.
The third time was indeed a charm, and seven years later, this project remains a critically acclaimed cult classic.
