Just so you know
A good friend's parents owned a "Mom & Pop Store" music shop, which meant they stocked a wider selection than mainstream outlets. I first discovered Paris in the early 90's, right away I could tell that this was a totally different beast to the rest. His rhymes are laced with metaphors and deep troubling thoughts, that stick in your mind until long after the album finishes.
This album continues this theme of political, social and economic insights. Listening to his work you can tell that unlike many artists, who focus on getting the beats ultra tight, but say next to nothing worth hearing lyrically, Paris focus is on the words. I have to agree with some others who criticise the weak backing tracks, but if that's the reason you put a CD in the player, I pity you. Many of the topics are difficult to hear and justify within ones self, but regardless are important subjects that should be discussed and given more airtime and consideration in the mainstream, perhaps the music industry would be in a better place if it did?
Tracks like; Lay Low, Agents Of Repression, AWOL and of course, the ubiquitous "What Would You Do?" unofficial theme of the 911 truth movement, add real gravitas to the album. Introducing concepts and subjects that many have already considered for a long time, and it seems very strange to hear them on a hip hop album! It also features Dead Prez, Public Enemy, Kam & Immortal Technique. I admit that Paris is an acquired taste, but I throw down a challenge to anyone who thinks all Hip hop is the same...Give Paris a chance!
Buy it or regret it.

If you want to know where all the great West Coast artist have gone, look no further. I don't know if Paris is actually considered a great west coast artist by the general public but this album is definitely great, it's going to be a collectors item. This is actually the first Paris album I ever brought and I had not really heard anything from him since 1992' when his name was in the media all the time due to the controversy involving his album's artwork and President George Bush Senior. He has had music released between that time and now, so I am feeling like I must have been missing out on something and I might have to go to his website and order those missed albums. The content on this album is amazingly filled with current historical anecdotes, its academic, political and funky. Nothing soft about it in any aspect so I had to make sure that I purchased the clean version with the bleeping of the curse words - I have kids you know. If you believe in conspiracy theories, you realize that after its official September 23rd release Paris' might just disappear. When the rap intellectuals of today start labeling albums as classic and noting them for historical rap relevance I predict Sonic Jihad will be an album they speak about. If they don't mention it they will be regarded as "suspect" in my book. Most of the album has a real serious west coast feeling but its the type of West coast feeling that everybody used to love when Ice Cube made Death Certificate. I was looking for something to hate on with the album but I couldn't find anything in any of the 16 tracks. I had forgotten that an album could be so entertaining and educational at the same time. All the information in his Guerrilla News Network- Aftermath: Unanswered Questions is on this album in rap form and more. The best thing is that this is more than just a political rap album. The quotes and artwork on the CD alone are worth the purchase. Its a good day for rap music. My Favorites are "Evil", "What Would You Do", "AWOL", "Ave Bushani" and "Split Milk".
