- See all my reviews
Pros: Prolyphic is tight on the mic. Reanimator is amazing on production, it's different and I love it. No guests (beside 2 tracks were they're required). Cohesive sound.
Cons: Prolyphic is a cranky rapper, but if you hear him out you'll see why.
Overall: This album came out of nowhere and its quite great! Prolyphic is great on the mic and raps about the negative side of everything, thus the title. Prolyphic is just really fresh and has a great delivery. He manages to make this album just great overall with his lyrical presence. Probably the only con I have against Prolyphic are his cranky lyrics, but he gives you reasons why hes cranky; example Common (Mr. Gap Sweaters) and NaS (Mr. Hip Hop is Dead). The producer, Reanimator, is quiet a character. His beats are just a blast! I really love how he "reanimates" every beat on here. Its always giving a different, dark, vibe through out the entire album. The two come together naturally, you can tell that nothing is forced on here. This album makes me reminisce off last years Blu and Exile album, of two guys getting together and making a dope album, doing it 50/50. Just coming out of nowhere and making a great overall album. Hopefully this is one of many albums from the duo, hip hop can always use dope lyricist and beat makers that work together. This is going to be one of this year's best!
