Inside Sean Rose’s album release On Jan. 10 at Digital Insight Studios, Las Vegas MC Sean Rose treated his closest friends and supporters to an advance listening of his upcoming full-length album, Overdrive, scheduled for a Feb. 10 release. Inside a dimly lit studio space, where glasses of champagne were coupled with sandwiches to keep the audience of 50 relaxed, Rose and producer Cameron Osteen presented the album in its entirety. The music proved that his appearance on MTV.com’s RapFix Live was no fluke. With guests ranging from local talent (SeDrew Price) to nationally recognized acts (Marsha Ambrosious), Overdrive is chock full of soul. It features poignant lyricism over some remarkable production. Standouts include the Las Vegas MC battle royal “Hometown Heroes” and former Disturbing the Peace “femcee” Shawwna-assisted “Tomorrow.”
