Only the trained ear can hear what Slum Village is all about lyrically on this album. SV has discarded the overdone and almost pre-requisite lyrical bravado that began dominating hip hop in 1987 and has brought something more interesting to the table...VIBE!! Today's hip hop fans are so conditioned to judge by lyrical ability that anything different falls short of their expectations.
Let me tell you something, if you like, Low End Theory by ATCQ, you will love this album. The reason I chose Tribe as my example is that, by no means could you call Phife or Q-Tip lyrical geniuses. And no, I won't bother with a comparison between the 2 groups. In my opinion they are both about the same thing...Vibe!!! Why else did Q-Tip use Jay Dee (SV's Producer/Rapper) to produce songs on Tribes last 2 albums as well as almost every song on his solo album?
Slum Village is about vibe. The lyrics match the tracks perfectly. So well do they match in fact, that you couldn't even hear any of your favorite mainstream lyrical gods on any of these tracks. It just wouldn't sound right. Do yourself a favor. Try to put your conditioning away, pop this album in and then try to go a month without listening to it. This, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the top ten hip hop albums of all time. And I say this, having a lot more material to survey than most.
Everyone has many different standout tracks, I'm not gonna tell you which tracks are hot (you judge for yourself), I'll just tell which one I'm feeling right now (and I do mean right now cuz I know they'll change). Track 2)Conant Gardens, 3)I Don't Know, 12)Get Dis Money, 15)Players, 17)2U4U, 18)CB4, and of course the street classic Thelonius, Track 20. This a must-have and recommend CD!
