Product Description

Amazon.ca

As the home of Black Star and Company Flow, Rawkus has made a name for itself as the label for any late-1990s discerning hip-hop fan. But DJs have come to know Rawkus as the home of some of the underground's best singles--tracks that were available only on vinyl until the label started the Soundbombing series. Soundbombing II opens with Beat Junkies J-Rocc and Babu working their magic on Eminem's "Any Man"--and while it's a strong track from the wack-minded MC, it's clear that the men behind the wheels of steel are hosting this party. That's not to imply that the MCs aren't doing their part--Mos Def is the best part of a great track on "B-Boy Document"; his partner in Black Star, Talib Kweli, busts out with his other crew, Reflection Eternal, and the sultry-voiced Bahamadia on "Chaos"; Medina Green displays a nice flow on "Crosstown Beef" (produced, incidentally, by De La Soul's Posdanuos); and Dilated Peoples drop their science over minimal backing on "Soundbombing." There's more (from Company Flow, Grand Puba, Sir Menelik, Common, and Sadat X, among others), and it's consistently interesting, if not consistently overwhelming. --Randy Silver

4.0 out of 5 stars awesome compilation of various emcee's and beats Nov. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
Rawkus has put together an album that is just sweet. Its funny, I have read on a few reviews that one of the "worst" songs on this album is the R.A. the Rugged Man track "Stanley Kubrick". What?? This is one of the strongest tracks on the album...."feel that bass-line cat"---dude is droppin more in the first verse than "Luda" or "Nelly" ever thought about droppin on a whole album. Its like this, and this applies to the first Soundbombing also---if you suck up all the crap...you know---flashin...bouncin...advertisin...frontin'...you may not get this stuff. These guys are slingin stuff they have worked on for many years. They have perfected their craft and are the "cream of the crop" or whatever cliche you want to use to describe "the best of the best". And the beats are amazing too. All this is mixed by the Beat Junkies i.e. Bum Rush Brothers ie DJ Babu and J-Rocc. Check this out if you dig on real stories and hypnotic beats. Otherwise, I heard Ja Rule dropped a new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars true hip hip March 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Yo, check this feature out. This thing gots so many good tracks like Pharoahe Monch's "The Mayor", Common and Sadat X "1-9-9-9", and Shabaam Sahdeeq and the Cocoa Brovas "Every Rhyme I Write". These are only a few. Every song on this dime is tight. Also if you familar with And1 and the mixtapes there are several tracks on this piece from the mixtapes. If you dont got it you should pick yourself up a copy before you lose your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Question: A Dope Compilation! Jan. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
I actually bought Soundbombing 3 prior to this one and I'm kicking myself for it. Number 2 is by far the best of the Soundbombing series and probably one of the best comps I've heard. It features a lot of great MC's. It is one of those albums where it's difficult to say what is the better song, because they are all excellent! Definately get this compilation if you appreciate real hip hop.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Soundbombing is it!!! Oct. 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
R.A. the Rugged, Q-Tip, Eminem, Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, and so many more make this one of the best albums I've listened to in a long time. This album is a must-have for rap enthusiasts, no doubt. Whether you're new to rap, or you know your way around the industry, it's not hard to like this album. Between the flows, the awesome beats, and the chillin' lyrics, Sound Bombing 2 is the one to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dope compilation Sept. 4 2002
By Omagus
Format:Audio CD
I usually hate compilations. I prefer to hear an album that has some sort of theme throughout.
But SOUNDBOMBING II is freaking dope.
The only questionable track would be RA the Rugged Man's "Stanley Kubrick." I'm just not feeling it. But everything else goes together impeccably. Before I heard this album, if someone had told me that Eminem, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Bahamdia, Pharoahe Monch, Common, El Producto, The High and Mighty, Dilated Peoples and more could all be on one album together, I would have said no way. Even taking into account that it's a compilation, I would have thought that there would be too many different styles (and maybe too many egos?) to make it all work. But J-Rocc and Babu lace it together with freaking tight mix skills. The different tracks flow together like they were born to do so.
I refuse to listen to SOUNDBOMING I or III, because I already know that there is no way that they would be able to match II. So I am happy with the album I do have.

Soundbombing 2 is a great mix tape. It's definitely a great introduction for those looking for a wide variety of quality underground (and some above ground) hip hop. The mix of beats and differently styled lyricists on this album are stellar. Ra the Rugged Man's "Stanley Kubrick" and Pharoah Monche's "Mayor" bring together the hardest and roughest tracks on the album, while Mos Def, Q-Tip, and others bring together the more laid back side of the album. Two of the most notable tracks include Company Flow's intensly anti-American "Patriotism", which packs a mean abstract beat and some hot lyrics, and Thirstin Howl III's "Brooklyn Hard Rock", which shows off the MC's unique rapping skills. I recommend this album to all those who appreciate hip-hop. Cop it now!!
