So JMT makes two really great albums (the Psycho-Social and Violent By Design) and underground heads everywhere get really excited. Then, they make a mediocre album (Visions of Gandhi) and those same heads start to think "oh no, now they're gonna start to really stink" because that's what happens in the music world, right?

Apparently not because Legacy of Blood is definitely not a mediocre album. It's a freakin awesome album. Stoupe and Vinnie Paz are making a strong statement here, keeping that hardcore, truly dangerous feel, but not slipping into that kinda cartoonish stuff that they did last time around.

Vinnie P. continues to be the most beautifully unhinged MC around. His flow has continued to develop and I'm missing Jus'Allah less on this than I was on Visions. (Not to say I wouldn't be pleased to hear him again - just sayin.) The lyrics are the usual blend of violence, menace, hate, and islamic allusion - going places where others don't, won't, and can't. It's good stuff and it will make you think a little when you really listen to the man.

Stoupe... what can you say about Stoupe other than that he's the best out there, period? The best beats and the strongest samples every time. You listen to the differences between this album and (say) Violent By Design and you hear a progression - not just the same dirt over and over again from the over-rated 'genius' producers in the mainstream.

So yeah; get on this, get on it today, you won't be sorry. Find out what explicit lyrics are all about - hardcore rhymes that you'll NEVER, EVER hear on the radio. (And that's all right by me, man...)

Philly crew JMT are back after the controversial stylistic departure that was 'Visions Of Gandhi', which in all honesty wasn't quite the travesty that fans made it out to be. Despite the early press reports, 'legacy of blood' doesn't simply revert to the dirty and grimy style of 'Violent Be Design' as it attempts to bridge the significant gap between said album and VOG, merging the darker atmospheric tracks of the former with the ethnic inflected and orchestral 'tearing down the walls' type sonic beat downs of the latter.

'The age of the sacred terror' kicks off the proceedings in a remarkable fashion, taking the JMT sound back to its origins and belting out one of their finest tunes ever. This album has less guest MC's on it than VOG, which is a positive or negative depending on where you stand, but they have roped in higher profile cats this time in Killah Priest and Gza, both of whose contributions enhance the quality and credibility of this release in general. It's quite satisfying that JMT have now received the stamp of approval from the Wu, especially since for years they were branded as mere clones. Of course sceptics may argue that given the shoddy nature of recent wu product their endorsement hardly counts for anything nowadays. Regardless, Killah Priest tears it up on 'Saviourself', with Paz making references to all things mythical and religious, perfectly complimenting K.P's wise flows. Gza jumps aboard for 'on the eve of war', a track that showcases Stoupe's knack for using classical music to inflict bodily harm, although perhaps not to the same jaw dropping effect as 'Animal Rap'. 'Verses Of The Bleeding' is perhaps the most brooding of the lot, reaching almost cinematic heights with Des Devious stealing the show from Paz with one of the albums strongest verses.

This album is too nice for words. Vinnie fell a bit off lyrically before, his lyrics were a bit weaker (content wise) on Visions of Ghandi, and I was a little disappointed. But, on this album, from the very first track that kicks in, it completely sets it off. He's as raw as he ever was, with insane delivery. Stoupe, the Enemy of Mandkind, is a pure genius. His beats are definately some of illest beats i've ever heard, and that's completely evident on this album. I'd rank Stoupe up there with Premeier. If you wanna hear some raw music to workout to, blast in your whip, chill back and bang out, this is definately the album for you. Insane Collabs, like Killah Priest (on a sick as hell spanish flavored beat), and Gza (on a raw war-like beat), make this album a personal favorite of mine. DEFINATELY cop this LP quick, Highly recommended.

With this release, JMT finally proved they don't need Jus Allah to stay up, and Vinnie shows they still are lyrically raw.

One love.

this is in my opinion the better sequel to Violent by Design, the shoes that ghandi didn't quite fill. The total rawness is ressurected and put back into full motion. JMT decided to have less collabs than previous albums to show a more unique JMT feel, i think it was a good idea, but i also like the Psycho-Social idea with only 1-2 solo songs. Jus Allah (not Jus-uh-la..) started dissing Paz and Paz retaliated so they split up obviously, but the gap wasn't very big, and it is their second album without him so its not totally different, i see it more as Jus being a heavily featured artist on VBD. The few collabs JMT come with are very effective (GZA!!!), and entertaining. Song after song is just rawness, and Stoupe's producing work is more art than work, never, ever, ever a weak beat, and Paz has very little weak lines compared to that of VoG (Nada Cambia). In all, a very good album, and a more fitting sequel to Violent by Design, only with the departure of Jus Allah. Rawness.
Pick it up definately
