I haven’t done one of these features in a minute because to be honest I really don’t have the time to go back and check out older releases unless I just happen to stumble upon them.
Well that happened, somehow, when I came upon this excellent album from Ekspan entitled, Utterly Disgusted. And I mean EXCELLENT. The production is entirely superlative and the wordplay and flows are well beyond what we are seeing for the most part today.
Album: The A.D.D.I.C.T. EP
Here’s another project that I have been holding on to for a while that deserves some recognition for being a really ill release. Often times projects that drop around the holidays get lost in the shuffle and that’s really the case here. I heard about it, listened to it, and meant to post something months ago but just fell short.
Artist: Dead Poets Society
Album: Self- Titled
Source: Dot Got It
2. Dead Poets Society
4. Poetry 101
6. Father Figure
7. Study Hall
8. Closed Curtains
9. Top Shottas
10. Early Dismissal
This is the first installment of a new category on HHD entitled, Sorry I Slept. I just want to recognize some projects that I may have missed a few months ago, or perhaps a few years ago. I will be posting these on an as needed basis.
I picked Dead Poet Society because I have really become fond of their music over the last few months. I saw this on Dot Got It when it was originally released. I always meant to check it out but never did. That is until a few months ago.
The EP is solid like concrete if you like that Boom Bap east coast sound. Each emcee carries their weight on the project and the production is strong.
