It’s always good to get in touch with some old friends and for them to tell you what they are upto now. So check out Supa 7. Some nice t-shirts and a nice little attitude to doing something a slightly different way.
There are some horribly obvious samples on this album but they are used so effectively it doesn’t even matter. I was never too impressed with College Dropout but there is no denying his flow. Some good guests this time too (but, Brandy??? Who knew she was still alive? Guess those Moesha royalties are drying up…). Pick it up tomorrow.
Stand out tracks:
Touch the Sky feat Lupe Fiasco
Drive Slow feat Paul Wall
Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix) feat Jay Z
On a sidenote, when is the Cut Chemist album coming out?
It seems as if Egon from Stones Throw has been working on a new David Axelrod compilation for Capitol/Blue Note. It’s out soon and there is going to be a 12″ with some instrumentals on it as well.
