Boomkat Product Review:
Not sure what album # this is from the new school hip hop's prime hip hop poet as previous work's have not quite hit with the required essentialness to get logged in my cluttered and mushy brain matta. Now well clear it seems of Rick Rubins American label, this album is on through Wichita for this UK license. Guests on this slice of post rap intelligencia include Thavius Beck (Mush), Isaiah Ikey Owens (Mars Volta), Zack De La Rocha (Rage Against The Machine, where's the DJ Shadow hook up joint?) and Plug Research's Mia Doi Todd. Some tracks feature the metal grinding style associated with his Rick Rubin production joints, vocals adapting standard spit rap one moment then half sung the next but always topically interesting as you'd expect from the man behind the classic 'Twice The First Time'. Pretty much as eclectic a hip hop as you can get in 2005, one for fan's of the last heavy, heavy Dalek CD on Ipecac for starters and any one else who likes grit mixed in with there daily nutrition program.
