Boomkat Product Review:
Big Dada come correct in style this week with the proud unveiling of this latest conscript to their already bulging ranks, with the debut album from South Central LA's Kail. This is one of those albums that's going to be taking a lot of people by surprise, and more than likely raise a few cries of "what the f*ck is this" and "why the f*ck haven't I heard it before?". Kail is already being hailed as this generations Ice Cube and it's easy to see why with his effortlessly humourous yet street tough lyrics and uber confident flow that also calls to mind Brit MC Infinite Livez on abstract big band banger 'Silky Hawaii' or recalling Freestyle fellowship's Aceyalone for his melodic tongue twisting style. Production wise, the beats are strictly on a fresh tip, drawing for Grime and crunk styled 8-bit gameboy melodies on 'Wendy' or stripped 80's electrosoul on album highlight 'Motorola twins' while a large proportion falls within those Madlib defined parameters of rich soul and funk sampling hiphop downbeats, LA style. Fans of everyone from Shape of Broad Minds to NWA are going to find something to reaffirm their love of quality hiphop in the company of Kail. Recommended.
