Something very special has arrived, courtesy of Decon Records. The Alchemistâ€™sÂ Russian RouletteÂ has hit the streets like a heat wave on hip-hop.
He is a Cali native and real worker-type who is always creating dope projects year after year. I really respect that ethic in any artist.
The track I just canâ€™t stop listening to is â€œFlight Confirmation.â€ Â If youâ€™ve been craving something raw and new, look no further than emcee Danny Brown, a producerâ€™s best friend.Â I love the combination of Schoolboy Q on this track and I know your local DJâ€™s will be eating this one up. Whatâ€™s impressive is that I can honestly say I like and enjoy listening to something a little different and by re -inventing the wheel of hip-hop. Again, this album is not a mixtape, nor a compilation. Some rap lovers might bitch about all the guitar samples, but to be honest, I canâ€™t put my finger on how to label it other than one of the best albums Iâ€™ve heard in 2012.
The song â€œThe Turning Pointâ€ is a prime example of a smoked-out scenery as emcee Roc Marciano serenades the microphone perfectly by placing his position as a new monster in an old game.
So much Kush and creativity was involved here. This artistâ€™s biggest selling point has always been keeping an underground type feel.
There are thirty tracks total on this album, so sit down and take a good listen; youâ€™re in for nice treat.
