Easily one of the best albums of 2010! With his affiliations to Demigodz and Army of The Pharoahs, Celph Titled might be known for being part of the hardcore hip hop movement, but on Nineteen Ninety Now he intends to only give you a straight forward tribute to the 90's era of hip hop. Backed by beats from Buckwild's vaults (unused recordings from around '95-'94), the album takes the listener on a trip back in time, back to the East Coast boom bap that many of us grew up on. In the present day if we're still bickering about East vs. West, let's all just take a moment and listen to the radio and then tell me you still have a preference. I would go as far as to say that this album is an instant classic. I've heard mixed thoughts about how that can be if the beats are so dated. Personally good music is good music, a mantra all underground hip hoppers live by but hardly ever practice, because we're too critical. Nineteen Ninety Now isn't meant to be cutting edge, the lyrics aren't meant to be the most thought provoking backpack shit you ever heard. The simple but brilliant punchlines, the raw lyrics in tracks like ''F*ckkmaster Sex'' , the personal retrospect of ''I Could Write A Rhyme'' and ''Miss Those Days'', the battle rhymes, the 90's beats, they're all there for you to pause and appreciate hip hop as Celph Titled looks back on simpler times. I especially appreciate his jabs at the current commercial state of rap music, and it helps to listen and do your part, speak your mind about what's wack in hip hop, who's wack in rap right now and say ''fuck em!'' Celph Titled isn't the first person to attempt an ode to the Golden Era, but he definitely has a unique advantage thanks to Buckwild, and doesn't ever claim that he's the only one bringing hip hop back, he just wants hip hop to bring itself back. And wether we choose to believe it or not, we are all an important piece to hip hop's longevity, and doing our small part as fans of true hip hop definitely helps preserve the art. Again, this is one of the best albums of the year and one of the best albums I've heard in a long time, Buckwild is one of the many producers from the 90's that deserves a place in the hip hop hall of fame for being a pioneer in this music. He is probably responsible for some of your favorite beats of all time but you might not even know it, and to round it all out you've got Mista Sinista performing all cuts and scratches. So you can call it a concept album if you want, and wether Celph Titled looks at it that way or not, you can't argue that it wasn't perfectly executed. And so to both Celph Titled and Buckwild, I'd just have to say ''thank you'' and that I miss those days too.
