Black Patch War is a 7-track EP by Seattle hiphop mainstays Common Market composed of RA Scion on the rhymes, Sabzi of Blue Scholars on production. Offered as the first official follow-up to the successful debut album, Black Patch War is sort of a mini concept project intended to pave the way, stylistically, for the highly anticipated Tobacco Road. With pointed and pertinent social commentary atop a soul-stirring soundscape of hard-hitting beats, Black Patch War is a genuine release that serves well as a the perfect segue into the group's future, solidifying their position as legitimate contenders for the national spotlight in the underground hip hop scene.

4.0 out of 5 stars RA Scion & Sabzi deliver the goods!, May 30, 2008

I first came in contact with this Seattle-based duo by way of their Massline label counterparts Blue Scholars (Geologic & Sabzi). Hands down, Sabzi is one of my favorite beat-makers of the new millennium, and I never miss any beat he touches. Common Market's self-titled debut quickly became one of my favorite records of 2006, so this EP was greeted with high anticipation for this listener.

There's only 7 songs here (22 minutes), but every one is excellent, and nothing is even near skippable. A few of them rank as my favorite songs the duo has ever created. Simply put, RA Scion & Sabzi are in top form. It's all quality, but the major standouts are "Black Patch War", "Watership Down" & "Bonanza".

For those that are fans of the duo, this EP should really be a no-brainer - a must buy. This material is every bit as (and maybe more) potent than their critically acclaimed debut. One thing is for certain - they got me steadily drooling for their upcoming sophomore full-length "Tobacco Road".
