VINNIE WITHOUT STOUPE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Season of the Assassin: Parental Advisory (Audio CD)
Just listened to this for the 4th time & with every listen it gets better,not 1 bad track & there`s 21(including intro).Vinnie knows how to pick a beat & although the album features an all star production list(including,Lord Finesse,Madlib & DJ Muggs) for me it`s the lesser known headz who provide the best beats(Shuko & C-Lance).The collab`s are also dope(even the track w/Paul Wall!),my favourite being Street Wars w/Clipse,whom i`ve previously slept on as a group,Block Mccloud also provides the hook.I must admit i`ve never heard all the Jedi Mind Tricks albums & certainly parts of this album have a slightly more mainstream appeal but overall hardcore headz will not be disappointed.I`m sure JMT will be back,Stoupe is now one half of Dutch,the other half(Liz Fullerton) appears here on the last track(deep song-a dedication to his late stepfather).Don`t hesitate in buying this,definately 1 of the top 5 rap albums of 2010.
Other dope-Blacastan,Roc marciano,Eternia & MoSS.
