On their follow-up to Wildflowers, Connie Price and the Keystones step-up with a heavyweight, dynamic, soundtrack-inspired hip hop album. While their debut was instrumental and funk heavy, Tell Me Something is quite the opposite, featuring a marquee-filling list of quality MCs. The legendary Percee P, Wildchild, Ubiquity-labelmate Ohmega Watts, Soup from Jurassic 5, Blood Of Abraham, Mykah 9, and Aloe Blacc! To achieve more of that hip hop influenced approach to the genre itself that is heavily funk influenced, the recorded and played everything live, then later sampled it all, looped it up and re-arranged the pre-existing arrangements! Full of brassy horns, deep strings, heavy percussion and well timed beat drops and pick-ups to compliment the addition of lyrics from the high profile list of hip hop guests. An enjoyable listen throughout and hopefully not the last attempt by the CPK to mix it up like this! The second disc on the CD release comes with the instrumentals.
