Now You're Tuned In To The Sounds Of Jasiri

Beyond Reality W/Source Of Labor

Kylea comes out strong on this slab of hot wax from 1998. Blessed with one of the smoothest voices in hip hop, she could be found all over Rain City releases for years, from 14 Fathoms to Choked Up to Stolen Lives - and often times I felt her guest appearances outshone the featured artist. With an impeccable delivery and imagery-filled lyrics, she is definitely an artist in command of her art. This collaborative 12" features two stellar tracks from Kylea with Negus I on beats (two of his best, in my opinion), and an additional track by Source Of Labor. The A-side, "I reality", has to be one of my all-time favorite Northwest tracks without a doubt.
