JULY/AUGUST CYCLE #3
INCREDIBLE concept album from Pen Pals MC Cynic the Apache aka Bobby Noble and beat maker Lars Viola. Dusty, jazzy, downtempo beats on an alcoholics anonymous tip. Peep the video for the first single “Bobby’s Lament” then check the rest. Possibly my fav album of the year – hasn’t been off my personal playlist since the moment I first heard it. Added to the sounds is the amazing full cover artwork by jazz illustrator Yazuka Ruma.
Don’t sleep, unless it’s a drunken stupor!!!
Free Dope LP
ft Kurious & IMANI the GHETTORACLE
The incredible new album by Souls Of Mischief/Hiero member A-Plus, with ridiculous production from The Architect (Homeliss Derilex] and guest features from Kurious [Constipated Monkeys] & Imani the GHETTORACLE (Pharcyde). It’s pretty rare that an older cat/s can make a splash nearly 30 years after their hip hop debut, but this project is pretty damn special yo. This new album outta Oakland, CA goes some way to prove that if you got it, you got iT…….ENJOY!!!
