Joell Ortiz again?? Yezzir!!!
I've only heard a handful of things from this album (assuming this eponymous track by Mos Def is officially part of this project too??) but what I have heard is sounding incredible! Say what you want about Damon Dash, who's overseeing this project via his new DD172 creative space, (and I have in the past) but this could be contender for hip hop album of the year already. Yeah, I said it! Long-time readers know I've never been much of a fan of Jean Grae either but she sounds amazing here too. 'Real' hip hop is back!!!
