Killah Priest - Heavy Mental (Throwback Review)

Killah Priest - Heavy Mental

With Killah Priest recently dropping his extremely dope new album The Psychic World of Walter Reed, I decided to dig out my favorite album from him - 1998's Heavy Mental. This was Priests first solo album and actually ended up coming out before his first group album with Sunz of Man - The Last Shall Be First. I remember scrounging the internet looking for Real Audio leaks off of this album since I was fiending for it after his appearances on various Wu-Tang projects. Just mentioning Real Audio makes me feel old. Anyways, how is the album? Click to find out.

The Brotherhood - Elementalz (Throwback Review)

The Brotherhood - Elementalz (1996)

Released in 1996, Elementalz is the second album released by the UK group The Brotherhood. I'm not really familiar with much hip-hop from outside of the U.S. (help me change that and suggest some others), but this album is really dope. The Brotherhood consists of two MCs (Mr Shylock and Mr Spyce), and a DJ (Mister Dexter). I'm not sure if the main producer on this album (The Underdog) was a member of the group or not, but he produced all of the tracks on here, as far as I can tell. So how is it? Click to find out.
