"First off, I must give props to El-P for the extremely fresh and addictive production. The beats are definitely a vast improvement, if not a nice progression from Lif's earlier efforts. Lyrically, Lif does not deliver to his fullest potential. Inside we hear a much different Lif than the one we all ..." Read more

"Take it from a fan that owns every album by The Grouch, and a slew of others by his peers from the Living Legends collective - THIS CD IS A MUST OWN! The Living Legends are known for their uncanny sense of introspection and limitless amount of independence. They are arguably the truest of any underg..." Read more

"I find it downright confusing that so many people have found this album to be simply "average". I was first exposed to CMA's "All Over", and loved it, which lead me to buy "Overall". At first listen I found this record to be better in the way of beats, rapping, and the overall hunger and soul that t..." Read more

"The boiling controversy concerning this album's direction between fellow Wu members resulted in one of the most anticipated releases of 2007, let alone the Wu-Tang Clan's entire discography. Curiosity had me drooling for this album months ahead of it's scheduled release. Honestly, with The RZA being..." Read more

"The Living Legends in my opinion, are the best hip-hop collective I've heard in several years, and are one of my personal favorites. Coming out of the Bay area, the crew was formed in 1994 by Sunspot Jonz (aka BFAP) & Luckyiam.PSC (aka PSC), otherwise known as the Mystik Journeymen. In 1995 they met..." Read more

"When I first looked at the list of collaborators for this album, I thought it would for sure end up a cluttered unfocused mess. The list of producers, engineers, live musicians, scratch DJs & guest rappers is among the most extensive I've ever seen. Surprisingly, "Ear Drum" delivers near-flawless co..." Read more

"I bought this EP back in 2005 when I saw the Blue Scholars open for Zion I in Minneapolis. They performed almost all the songs on this EP live. Out of the approximately 50 hip-hop shows I've seen, this has always been one of the most memorable. The soul they displayed live gave me straight goose bum..." Read more

"If you're reading this, you are undoubtedly familiar with the legacy that Pete Rock & CL Smooth created throughout the early 90s. Personally, they created my favorite hip-hop album of all time with "Mecca & The Soul Brother". With that said, big time fans may be a bit discouraged by this LP. After a..." Read more

"Aesop may be the most underrated lyricist in the Living Legends crew. Hailing from Fresno, he holds the belt for dropping some of the earliest releases from the crew (starting in 1996). He's released 10 solo albums in his tenure, and has one on deck since 2006. The reason you never hear about Aesop ..." Read more

"Eligh's been in the game for a minute now. Starting out as The Grouch's "apprentice" back in 1996, Eligh's contribution to the Living Legends crew is massive. I've been saying it for years - Eligh is one of today's top beat-makers. And this album is somewhat of a masterpiece among his overflowing di..." Read more

"This quite possibly may be the best starting point in the enormous catalog of the Living Legends crew. Why, you ask? It's a straight banger. Full of memorable beats, ill flows, and unmatchable chemistry. You don't have to try too hard with this record. From front to back, this album is straight goos..." Read more

"Astonish is the newest member of the thriving hip-hop collective known as the Molemen. The Molemen are a trio of premier hip-hop producers from Chicago. Ever since I picked up "Ritual of the Molemen" years back, I knew this would be a group of beat-makers to look for in the future. Since then, their..." Read more

"This mix is so fresh. I was hearing a bunch of hype about it but it was from a bunch of cats who know Collagey personally. Honestly I was skeptical. But then I finally listened to it. It really is dope from beginning to end. Its got lounge, jazz, hip hop, soul, funk, r&b, reggae everything!! I love ..." Read more

"Normally expect anything from Andre to be dope and this is no different. Whether it's similar to his previous work or not, the album is still good. A friend said that he thought it was leaning in that hyphy direction. Still good so you be the judge. Standout tracks include " 7 Letter Coked Out Intro..." Read more

"Expected a lot more from this release but there was enough dope tracks to save it from being a let down. In fact the bad ones aren't really bad, just not what I was hoping for. Unfortunately any hints of cohesiveness throughout the album is actually the culprit of the "off" sound of the beats. Stand..." Read more

"A dope mix of tracks that has a little bit of something for everyone albeit lyricism or joints to get down to. Standout tracks include "Good Feelin, That's How It Is (part two), Traditional Slick Talk, Soweto, 93 Til Infinity (remix) (feat. Souls of Mischief), It Could Go Down, Production Products, ..."
