Hell Razah & BSBD - Razah's Ladder CD
|Kingston and Young God return as the producing duo Blue Sky Black Death after their highly acclaimed double album A Heap of Broken Images on Mush Records, and following their successful collab pairing
up last year with Wu-Tang's only West Coast affiliate, Holocaust. Fresh off the praise from his most recent release, Renaissance Child, Sunz of Man member Hell Razah hits us with a petrifying combination
of gritty streetwise tales and spiritualism over some very distinct production... will somebody in the Wu hierarchy just give these guys an in-house job already? Features appearances by Shabazz the Disciple, Ill Bill, Prodigal Sun, Crooked I and Sabac Red.|

- See all my reviews
Pros: Hell Razah is sick on this shit. Blur Sky delivers ONLY dope beats on this crazy shit.
Cons: Some average parts on here with some sudden mood changes.
Overall: Hell Razah is another MC I have just finished discovering. The former Wu-Tang affiliate is just sick on this, such as on The Cube! This is actually Hell Razah's second album this year, in which m yet to listen to the first. I think what I love about Razah are his great lyrics from time to time with the cool delivery. Blue Sky Black Death has some great moments on here with some really dope beats. The guest also come dope such as Crooked I (almost 10 years later and no official album) and Shabazz. I think one of the bad things about this album is the sudden mood changes from tracks here and there. Examples are The Cube to Halos or Most Merciful to Audiobiography seems like such a weird mood setter for that time period of the album since it goes from slow to upbeat. Really hope that this wont be there only collaboration with the two.
