D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team)? Best Album of 2008 ? Odds gotta be 2/1!
Supposedly, September 30th is the day that D.I.R.T. will be released to the masses. I am putting it right there at the number one spot for my most anticipated album of 2008. Really, what can fuck with it? The only other artists right now that I can think of off the top of the head are Blu & Exile and maybe NYOil. If you heard their leaked track, “Everything is Heltah Skeltah” then you know what you are in store for: creative concepts, clever rhymes that give you hope about a change in the current status of hip-hop, and a dope beat.
For a minute I was getting worried there, it seemed like Rock and Ruck would never bring it back together. All of a sudden- BOOM. Sean P went from being the second most talked about rapper in Heltah Skeltah to being one of the most respected and talked about rappers in the game. He dropped two solo albums with his most recent having some guest spots from Rock, which gave all the HS fans something to tide them over.
Also, from the sounds of the new HS track, Sean P is back to his old form vocally. When listening to recent tracks and seeing him perform live , I started to wonder if I should mail some fuckin’ Ricola to Duck Down. Sean P sounded mad hoarse.
Seems like someone made a trip to the ear, nose and throat doctor, cause Sean P is sounding like vintage “Operation Lockdown”-era Ruck but with new tricks up his sleeve. Add Rock, who will forever have one of the dopest voices in hip-hop and you have a recipe for guaranteed success. If you are going to download shit in 2008 then download that ringtone bs, buy this ish. Perhaps if people start supporting ish like this, we can expect higher quality hip-hop on a more regular basis. Oh yeah, what albums are everyone out there anticipating?
