Another one of my personal favorites from last year. Hezekiah is a great MC and an overall soulful dude. This album opens with some funky drums, the smooth singing of Muhsinah & Heze rippin down the booth. Essentially setting the whole tone of album. But the track after, "Wild & Wreackless" backs up that message with a little more thump in the lyrics of Heze. The rest of the album follows a funky soul vibe as the influences of Dilla is evident. Heze also says he wrote "Wild & Wreakless" the day Dilla passed. Possibly a good friend with the late legend. Neverthe less Heze rhymes like it's his last day on earth and the overall quality of the music it awesome. The guest appearances basically criminally slept-on singers, musicans, MCs & Bilal. Honestly if you haven't heard this album I suggest you cop it off Amazon. Hope Heze got some project coming soon...Oh by the way the awesome production is from Hezekiah himself.
