Hailing from Cambridge, Mass., but a musical nomad of sorts, K-The- I??? has traversed the country pushing the sonic boundaries with his unique brand of densed-out boom-bap. Armed with a commanding voice and long winded verses usually preferring gritty production aesthetic that recalls Bomb Squad-era Public Enemy and signature Def Jux recordings, he crafts tracks that swell and pulse with an immersive gravity. Making an appearance on Bigg Jus and Orko Eloheem's previous NMS album, Imperial Letters of Protection, K-The-I??? has earned the respect of many of indie hip-hop's elite. Whether writing epic love letters or harnessing bugged-out electric currents, K-The-I???? music has a personality and urgency that demands your attention. Making a thunderous return to Mush Records with his latest full-length, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow, with production on the album handled entirely by Thavius Beck, his first project since he finished work on Saul Williams' Niggy Tardust alongside Trent Reznor. Where 2006's Broken Love Letter focused on past loves gone wrong, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow is a collection of songs about the MC's cross country relocation to the West Coast, and trying to come to terms with how his life has changed from it all. The result is a work of singular focus that catches K-The-I??? at his strongest, dropping ingenious lyrics over futuristic beats and rhythms. Featuring guest appearances by High Priest (of the newly reunited Antipop Consortium), Busdriver, Subtitle, recent Scribble Jam champ Nocando, Vyle, and Galapogos4's Mestizo. Thavius Beck even leaves the producer's desk and steps in front of the mic on ''Marathon Man''. For fans looking for an album that ties hip-hop's past, present and future, K-The-I???'s Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow delivers in ways that Anticon and Def Jux once did.
