Now We See Further
Coming a year later and almost twice as long as "A Journey To The...", Acidicompositions finds the Acid Reign Crew more honed and confident of their craft. Gajah and Beond are once again accompanied by DJ E.S.P. and producer Dert, along with Awol One and Adlib and Zagu of GPAC. Coming out in 1998, this tape was my introduction to the Reign, and it blew my mind wide open. More than a decade on, it still gives me a feeling of excitement and anticipation for what's on the horizon whenever I listen to it. This is new-school hip hop, in the best possible sense of the term, even today. Besides that, it's just a great tape. Give your brain a treat.
