With an impeccable double time flow, it’s clear he’s not playing games when he gets on the track. The comparisons to Twista are too easy. One track in, and you can see that “This Is Me” will be full of tongue-twisting lyrical aerobics.
NOTES
"Sonick, an established emcee whose name isn’t as well known as most in the city, but carries enough talent to make that change. Much like Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonick’s game is all about speed. This past August, he released his EP, “This Is Me”. While already having several mixtapes out, the project served as an introduction to Sonick on a much larger scale, and was our first introduction to his flow as well.
Right out of the gate, you can see why Sonick calls himself the “Man of Speed”. With an impeccable double time flow, it’s clear he’s not playing games when he gets on the track. The comparisons to Twista are easy, but unlike the Chicago emcee that made the speed-flow popular, Sonick can switch it up on the same verse and it doesn’t sound forced. One track in, and you can see that “This Is Me” will be full of tongue-twisting lyrical aerobics." - Allen Halas of BreakingAndEntering


Streetz (Review) -
"The production here is sleek. The rich bass, wavy background components, trendy rhythm, and urban vibe make for an A-1 mixture. The hook is dope as well. It consists of a sample of “Bad Man” by veteran R&B singer R. Kelly. The clip fits in nicely with the context of the song. The verses are choice. Sonick disperses a clean cut flow, gritty wordplay, and hood savvy rhymes. He gives a raw portrait of what life is like for those on the rougher side of the tracks. A highlight from his enlightenment includes: “What I done learned up in these streets, it’s always something with these streets. N—as that you call yo homies will sling mud on you to get your piece. N—as that you hustle with will bust you down to get your cheese. Even blood will kill you blood. It ain’t no love up in these streets. That’s why I keep my pistol loaded. I’m about my issue. I take on the biggest n—a like I don’t know that I’m little.” Those are some crucial bars from the Mid-West talent. All in all, this record is a banger.

**My Two Cents: I love this joint. The production is super polished and Sonick goes in on the content tip. He really serves up a lot of truth about the nature of the street life. It’s not sweet at all. This is definitely my favorite song of his thus far. For more with Sonick, readers can check out “Heaven Or Hell” and “F–k N—as” currently on his Sound Cloud page." - Miracle LeRoy of TheIllixer


This Is Me (EP Review) -
"This Is Me, lets the listener get a peek inside of Sonick’s world. Is it worth the listen? Yes. But will you remember it later on? It’s hard to say. It’s a good EP, don’t get me wrong. But it’s missing a few tracks that would make it a certified standout from this artist and that artist. I’m sure Sonick will find that track and will be the talk of the town. I mean his flow is phenomenal and his producer selection is great. He just, like many artists, needs something that gives him that edge above the rest. Whenever he does find it, I will be here to listen, as I’m sure it will be what greatness is made of." - Pooh Bailey of The Illixer
