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

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.

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.

I've had this album since about the time it came out and have played it occasionally, but unfortunately I just recently sat down and really listened to it. This album is incredible; the Beat Junkies went all out on putting this thing together. The beats are excellent and the lyricists all shine. From artists that I listen to frequently, such as Mos Def, Talib Kwali, Common, Pharoah Monch, Dilated Peoples, & Eminem, to ones that I've rarely ever listen to or haven't even heard of, everybody shines. If I had to define what hip-hop should try to be like, it would be this album. When you look at the back of the album and see that there's 27 tracks you might think to yourself that there's no way all 27 can keep it real. Guess again; this album keeps it tight from start to finish. Despite the fact that a lot of the songs have intro tracks, even those intro tracks are tight. If you haven't heard this album, I definitely suggest you check it out and see what real hip-hop was, not this ... you hear today.

First off this is an overated yet must have album. I say it's overated because people speek on it like tracks 1-26 are perfect, such is not the case. I say it's a must have because of tracks like b-boy document, 7xl, chaos, brooklyn hard rock, mayor, patriotism, 1-9-9-9, next universe, and on mission. To me the best track is mayor by pharoahe monch, the beat is hectic his delivery is at it's best and the lyrics are vitious yet with meaning. Patriotism by company flow is a great political song with the unorthodox style co-flow presents along with the insightful lyrics. B-boy document has one of the best beats ever that's why it's up there. The two tracks with reflection eternal are extremely melodic and talib comes off how you'd expect him to, pretty good. 7xl by menelik, puba, and sadat is a track that makes you nod your head, along with 1-9-9-9 by common and sadat. There are probably a few good tracks i forgot but there are also a few not so good tracks that i'll just leave out. For the good tracks this is still a must have.

This is the 2nd Soundbombing CD by Rawkus and comparing it with the very well organized first Soundbombing...this one is even better, actually it's one of the best compilations I've ever heard...
With an all-star hiphop cast including: Common, Talib Kweli & Hitek, Pharoahe Monch, Eminem, and Mos Def. It even has some lesser known artists a chance to shine too...
The production, MCing, and DJing through out this whole CD is excellent and yet again shows us WHAT RAP IS SUPPOSED TO BE...not showin off your cash or rappin about how many drugs/hoes you've gone thru in a day...
Pharoahe Monch, Company Flow, and Common are what captured me most on this CD: Monch's explosive "WWIII" and good story on "Mayor" , Comp Flow's EL-P tells a very evil yet true story about the U.S.'s policies on "Patriotism" , and Com's hypnotizing "1-9-9-9"...
PRETTY MUCH EVERY TRACK ON THIS RELEASE WAS EXCELLENT... with a couple exceptions: RA Rugged Man's "Stanley Kubrick" just plain sucked, even though I like Dilated Peoples they just didn't sound good this time on their track "Soundbombing" , Thirstin Howl III had a nice verse but the rest of his track was nausiating "Brooklyn Hard Rock" , and Diamond D "When It Pours It Rains" put me to sleep...
This is probably one of Rawkus's best releases because it showcases so many dope MCs to get into... for example I got into Talib Kweli after I bought this and now Talib's one of my favorite MCs...
basically any CD by Rawkus is good because its REAL hiphop from the heart... xcept Lyricist Lounge Vol 2 (that one's not good)
Speakin my mind...
