Volume Two features more from the Street Industry collective - Flowwood, Natural Disasters, Nonstop, Clever, Kokane, and others. Dutch from Street Life/Project Blowed shows up as well. Frankly, it isn't as strong as Vol. 1, but it's still provides a dope listening experience. Once again, Nonstop and Natural Disasters steal the show. Peep.
Sick thug rap from '98. I initially picked this up for the exclusive Volume 10/Flowwood tracks, but the entire comp is entertaining. Emcees I know of like Kokane, Spice 1, Kam, Jayo Felony, and Lunisicc show up along several acts I don't know much about, like Money Green (from the One Punch Fam), Natural Disasters (who provide a couple way nice tracks), and Nonstop (who kills it again and again). Badd Azz, Boo-Yaa Tribe, C-Bo, and others show up as well. I'm in no way an authority on any of these artists, so I can't relate this album to their other output, but I can tell you that I think it's dope. So give a listen!
Here is another fine mindf*ck from audio visionary Adlib, AKA Thavius Beck. With this experimental instrumental sample record, he shows us that no sound source is off limits. Stretching hip hop to its limits, and delving into ambient and noise, Operating the Generator V.2 made me think my cd player was on the fritz when I first heard it. That's quite a distinction; only Pink Floyd's first album made me think the same. Looped samples unexpectedly pause, digital distortion is utilized, and the sound of skipping cd's becomes the basis for rhythm. Here, Mr. Beck shows us that he is in effect the modern aural equivalent of Jackson Pollock: with his art, the accident is denied. I implore you to listen to this, my favorite of Adlib's early experimental projects.
