Briefly, if you are a fan of conscious rap like KRS-One, Tribe Called Quest or De La Soul you should check out Billy Woods. Shit, the title is a quote from Fidel Castro. Musically Woods would have fit well into the Def Jux camp with his post-apocalyptic rock and electro backdrops. These science fiction and fantasy beats set the stage for Woods' staccato flow; spitting his thoughts on race, sex and class inequities / complexities. On "Ca$h For Gold" Woods exposes the rot and humiliation that belies the bottle popping, make-it-rain culture of strip clubs. "Pompeii" digs into the Milgram-esque implications of military service. "Blue Dream" dissects modern relationships with a strong, soulful vocal hook courtesy of L'Wren. Bottom-line: History Will Absolve Me is an intense record from a unique voice in hip-hop, offering a challenging though gorgeous listening experience.

well... this album is a strange one for me to review as in all honesty this man is one of my all time favorites as The Chalice is one of the greatest albums ever, period. That said, I found History Will Absolve Me to be a little lukewarm... After hearing Crocodile Tears I was pumped for the angry side of woods... Then it happened... the tempo died and slowed down never to regain the momentum. I'm wanting the BFGs, Mind Control and Crocodile Tears billy woods... come back and destroy the landscape my man.

While I listen to all forms of music, rap is not my forte. I do enjoy it, but much of it to me is too cliched. I respect work by artists like Black Star, Disposable Heroes of Hiphorisy, Nas, Notorious BIG. Madvillian, Mos Def, Kanye West and even Death Grips also appeal. So you have a picture of what I like.
What I don't like is rap that is so hardcore it comes off pretentious. Real power needn't show force and as we mature we don't require the same amount of swearing, yelling, emotion or other tricks used in music to convey it as an art.
So what do I like about History Will Absolve Me? It's creativity, the actual music and the clever lyrics. Billy Woods has made an album you can listen to from start to finish. You will smile, you will say "oh damn" and you will hit 'repeat' after the last track is over. All I had to say at the end of this was 'why in the name of God is Kendrick Lamar outselling this guy?'. I rate this as an exceptional album, a 9 out of 10. It will stand the test of time but sadly, it will be ignored.
Secure a copy while they're in print, and lets hope Billy Woods continues to bring us this awesome, artistic and passionate hip hop/rap like this.
