A Square Peg

Beatbox Break

While we're here, I might as well throw up Click's second album as well. Basically a direct continuation from his first LP, this record from 2000 revisits much of what was laid down previously: His ample producing and beatboxing skills, his love for family and Latino culture, and his knack for clunky, sometimes humorous, sometimes self-depreciatory, but still on-point lyrics. Oddly enough he reminds me a lot of Source Of Labor's Wordsayer. Stylistically they are probably as far apart as you can get, but like Wordsayer, Click's ernest delivery is all about the message, rather than showmanship or lyrical acrobatics. His entire family guests, as well as Jurassic 5, Medusa, Derek Strong, and a bunch of others.
