Every so often we get a submission that really sets itself apart from the others. Something that is more than a “hot track” or a “mixtape” – sometimes we get an ALBUM. South-Florida-now-in-LA emcee Sir J sent us a beautifully thought out project, touching on many issues that plague our country today, in the form of a story.
The entire production of this album, from the beats, to sequencing, to mixing, to song structure and delivery is out of this world. It is a breath of fresh air compared to some of the projects that pass for “albums” these days. Weighing in at 17 tracks, this rap-opera is comparable to the likes of Deltron 3030 or Prince Paul’s A Prince Among Thieves.
“Memories” feat. Croosh
