Exposition – The Metro
MC Exposition is easily one of my favourite rappers, both of his albums ‘The Metro’ and ‘Take a Penny Leave a Penny’ are great albums slept on by the masses. He is now a member of Audible Mainframe a great hip hop group – check him and them out!
“Boston-based rapper MC Exposition teams up with production duo The D-Boyz on his solo debut. Blending live instruments with hard beats and conscious lyrics, this hip-hop “concept album” follows Expo through A Day in the Life of an everyday Urbanite, riding on the train. Dealing with social issues such as poverty, war, and the injustices in the world caused by greedy politicians and bigots, “The Metro” is something that anyone familiar with the true nature of Hip-hop and it’s message can enjoy.”
Fresh Breath Committee
This album has some GREAT tracks but unfortunatly for me – i don’t like many of the hooks! But everyone else seemed to enjoy it! Its a pretty solid album. Great Potential.
“A unique sound, with messages contained in moving sound tracks of harmonies, beats, and melodies: Fresh Breath Committee is taking the foundation of hip hop and transcending it, by blending it with moving and inspiring music and narrative messages.”
SPAN PHLY – Lengthen the Lifespan
I really liked this album. The beats on this album are a little hit and miss but the lyrics are always on point.
“The Span Phly is a rapper/producer who has been honing his craft since he learned to speak. A wordsmith with almost too much to say he takes wisdom and blue collar common sense and weaves ideals over dark, handcrafted backdrops. After growing up all over the west coast he moved to Florida where he perfected the art, he now resides in Phoenix, Arizona”
Superstar Quamallah & Taj the Infinite – All Souled Out
Love this album, nothing really really special but every track is good – easy to listen to. Laid back jazzy hip hop. The production is spot on.
“Taj the Infinite – emcee, writer and scholar – and DJ Superstar Quamallah – deejay, producer, Hip Hop historian and educator – are on a mission to rejuvenate the soul of black music in Hip Hop. The two combine insightful lyrics and prose with spirit sturring beats and melodies working to inspire and motivate the masses to have fun and be critical simultaneously.”
