“The Time Is Now” is Downlows freshman album. Independently released in 2009 by Downlow himself, this album arrangement hit the streets hard. Everything about this album is clean and highly professional, a rarity from an independent artist releasing his own projects. As soon as ” I’m Running The Game” releases through your speakers you get hooked by the production and delivery of Downlows ever ending skill. With street ballads like “Go Hard” there is also some smooth R & B for the ladies with “Never Wanna Let You Go (Featuring Shelby McKinnon)” and “Hey Girl”. With respect’s to networking and appreciating other peoples sounds, “Get Hyphy WA (Dubb-A) To Tha Bay” is a bay area hyphy movement influenced song guaranteed to get you moving. From start to finish, you are guaranteed not to hit the next button. Great addition to your music library.
