Short, sharp and frank reviews from a confessed vinyl junkie. I'll post my most loved records and recent purchases here for your perusal weekly.
An album that's been almost two decades in the making certainly doesn't disappoint, but then it was never going to when you get these two in a room together. Admittedly, there aren't many surprises in the sound, but it gives me exactly what I want from a project like this.
Dusty beats and Soul samples with a mostly laid-back feel are the vibe here, and it's a welcome one, especially with guest appearances from Raekwon, RTJ, Michael Kiwanuka, and the late G.O.A.T. MF DOOM featured too. This is Hip Hop for the Boom Bap heads; if you loved The Mouse & The Mask, you will dig this. File under: THIS IS WHAT HIP HOP SHOULD SOUND LIKE, and there's absolutely NO NEED FOR A VOCODER HERE.
