Slaine didn't really make a name for himself untill this year. I only know a few people out in my area who knew who he was untill La Coka Nostra blew up. So if you don't know who Slaine is, check this cd out, he's awesome. If anything I'd say he sounds like a cross between Jedi Mind Tricks and Esoteric. He has that sick underground hate style, mixed with good lyrics and wordplay. This CD has a couple songs I would skip but everything else is stuff I'd bump before a robbery. That's a good thing. Check this cd out, "White Man Is The Devil Vol. 1" is even better than this. He is deffinently worth checking out. Also his group "Special Teamz" is something worth peeping.
