Another great collection of beats by Jay Dee, a must have for any fan of Slum Village! This, his first solo project, definately illustrates his passion for real hip-hop grooves, and, like all of Slum Village's work, is a breath of fresh air in todays' smog of rap bravado, pompousness, and over-materialism without substance. Here we see actual musical substance, as in "African Rhythms," and an amazing guest appearance of Elzhi (sp?), one of the gifted lyricists of Slum Village. This also gives Jay Dee the opportunity to do what I would call the "Pete Rock or Erik Sermon thing," where a producer and DJ also is the main MC heard on the record, and like the aformentioned hip-hop legends, Jay Dee shines.
