Veteran lyricist Reef the Lost Cauze was one of a host of artists to bless fans with new music on Christmas. Titled Reef the Lost Cauze Is Dead, the project’s namesake and artwork is a play on De La Soul’s classic 1991 album De La Soul Is Dead. This serves as a follow up to the Philly MC’s 2011 joint album with German production crew the Snowgoons, Your Favorite MC.

With the exception of one track, Reef the Lost Cauze Is Dead was produced solely by beatsmith Caliph-NOW, while track 10 was crafted by Dumhi. The album, mixtape or whatever you’d like to call it features 16 strong tracks that’ll make fans inquire why Reef the Lost Cauze remains so underrated.

Aside from being a talented MC, Reef the Lost Cauze makes it a priority to speak for a greater purpose when possible. He was actually one of a few artists to dedicate a song, titled “The Prey (For Trayvon & My Son),” to the memory of Trayvon Martin earlier this year.
