Smoke Notes

This new discovery from DJ Revolution makes the sort of solid underground hip-hop youd associate with Dilated Peoples, Swollen Members or Hieroglyphics, with the blueprint about tight rhymes and banging beats without any of the hype mainstream rap so strives for. Revolution also produces several tracks including some of the best on the album, notably Wake Up, Tables Turn and the dope single No Coast All Stars. Elsewhere other top-notch production is provided by Joey Chavez, on the excellent FallinDown, A Touch Of Jazz in house wiz Kev Brown on the sublime Economix, and a standout instrumental, Friends from Jay Ski. Baby Blaks style shares similarities to Grap Luva, Nas and Planet Asia (who guests on the aforementioned No Coast All Stars and which also features new Dre/Eminem discovery Obie Trice) however he manages to be lyrically original yet still sound like your classic street emcee, with a slick Queensbridge flow and thick accent. Overall the album bares a solidity rarely shown by debut LPs, with a consistency that many established rap stars wish they could achieve and on this basis alone it certainly looks like Baby Blak has a very rosy future ahead. Recommended. Import title in stock now.
