Deep Rooted - The Second Coming CD
|Sophomore album by the super-soulfoul Deep Rooted is here. Winners of the 2005 San Diego Music Awards for album of the year, Mr. Brady, Johaz, Brea and Artistic return with CLASSIC material. Representing San Diego, don't sleep on this album because you'll miss one of the best albums of 2006. Guaranteed. Mr. Brady and Artistic have beats for days! Brady will be having your head knockin' hard with his cracking snares and melodic keys and Artistic is smooth and has produced for Abstract Rude as well. A couple sick beats are dropped by Jake One, OhNo and B Dumm. This album has it's share of guest appearances that are nothing less than spectacular. One.Be.Lo rapping over one of Brady's beats will make anybody's day. West to East, you will be a fan. Other heavy-hitting friends on the album include: Abstract Rude, OhNo, Sha Dula, Main Flow, Aloe Blacc and Planet Asia. Deep Rooted is the best thing that's ever happened for San Diego hip hop.|

- See all my reviews
I didn't know much about Deep Rooted other than fellow AHH member Stacks Malone had provided the cover art, and I had heard a song of theirs on myspace. I figured Stacks knew what was proper enough to support and the myspace track was nice so I went ahead and got this...
What a pleasant surprise it was; these four got soul. Anyway, one of the track titles "Feel Good Music" pretty much sums the whole thing up by itself. But if I had to choose another word to sum the album up - clean. Clean vocals (really though), clean beats, clean rhymes; and the best part is that each of the pieces fit together seamlessly. This is a complete project, no holes. And I haven't even mentioned the guest spots yet, which are featuring the right people and are spaced out just enough to be refreshing but not overwhelming.
I definitely won't be sleeping on the next one.
