Editorial Reviews

Montezuma's Revenge was created the old-fashioned way, with the MCs A-Plus, Phesto, Opio & Tajai - and producers Prince Paul & Domino - in the lab together from the beginning to the end of the recording process. "We rented a house" explains Opio. "Prince Paul came out, we had no distractions, we just did music every day. " "It was cool" adds Tajai. "He had concepts, and its good to have an outside perspective - it was a great process." The result is a cohesive, creative Hip Hop album, the kind of project you d expect from veterans like Souls of Mischief under the auspices of a genius producer like Prince Paul. Souls first encountered Prince Paul while touring with A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul back in the day. But it was on a more recent tour with Handsome Boy Modeling School that the seeds of this collaboration were planted. So what exactly is Montezuma's Revenge? Tajai comments, "We recorded the album on Montezuma Street." The final product features 18 tracks of the quality Hip Hop you ve come to expect from Hieroglyphics, with cover art by esteemed illustrator Steve Lopez (famous for his illustrations of Erykah Badu and others). Of course there s more to the title than the location of the recording, Tajai says "The deeper meaning is this album will make you cr@p yourself."

Format: Audio CD
Souls of Mischief have just released their first album in over 9 years entitled "Montezuma's Revenge." The album was produced by the legendary Prince Paul behind hip-hop classics from De La Soul, Gravediggaz, Stetsasonic and Handsome Boy Modelling School. Souls of Mischief stormed onto the rap scene when they were just 17 years old releasing hip-hop classics like 93 til infinity. That track is still much loved and their first album is considered one of the best hip-hop albums ever released. They followed it up with the much maligned "No Man's Land." This album remains one of the most underrated rap albums ever released. The sound was in stark contrast to their first album but the lyrics and flows were still unparalleled for the time. Souls of Mischief were always way ahead of their time. They were dropping cadences, styles and multi-syllabic flows that the rap industry is just catching on to now almost 15 years later. Their third album "Trilogy" was in much the same vein as their first 2, sticking to the tried and true formula of ridiculous lyrics over crazy beats.

Montezuma's Revenge is a new era for the Souls. They are all older, a bit more mature, and yet with this album they've retained that timeless `93 style hip-hop sound. Much credit has to go to Prince Paul for getting the very best out of Souls. Prince Paul knows how to make an album. In this age of Itunes and people only downloading tracks they like, "the album" is almost dead. Prince Paul has created something that is complete and is best consumed as such. The entire album flows from beginning to end and it covers so many styles.

I don't think you will ever find a better rap group than Souls of Mischief.

93 til' infinity was one of my favorite tracks of all time. Now i've got a few more favorites!!!!!
Song titles - "One" and "Tour Stories" are both wicked tracks. But Fourmation is sick beat beautifully mastered that I just can't stop listening to!! Jeez man, this album is great. I missed these guys for soo long. Ah, and one last track to note.. "For Real Y'all"... That's the track I want to hear before a fight or a nasty football game!! Get you PUMPED .. lol

I haven't bought a hip hop album in few years.. these dudes torched the mic! they always do.. best music purchase i've made in a while..lol

I'll be the first one to admit that I'm rather picky when it comes to the "music" aspect of hip hop, so I'm not going to say anything about the production on this CD. My rating is based solely on what I think of the flows. I want to say that these cats have come a long way, but at the same time I don't want to give the impression that they weren't nice back in the '93 til Infinity' days. They were. However, personally I couldn't get into 'No Man's Land' or even 'Third Eye Vision'(the first Hiero release) too much. In particular, 'No Man's Land' seemed a bit flat to me. But looking back I guess these were necessary parts of the process, especially when I think about how much they all have improved lyrically over the past decade and now in this new release.

Simply put, as of today, I think that flow-wise Souls may be the strongest hip hop group I've ever heard, and I've been listening to hip hop since the beginning. I mean, for those who thought Hieroglyphics was just Del, Pep and Opio (and maybe Casual), I think you've been sleeping on Tajai(who for me was the only one who showed up on 'No Man's Land'), A+ and Phesto. They are all lyrically on point on this album, and it's all still in that cheeky, fresh Cali style that has always characterized them. You should definitely check it out.

The newest album from the fantastic four hailing from Oakland, Ca is what hip hop needed. You can listen to this album from the beginning till end.

This album was instantly my #1 after hearing it. What a diamond in the rough. I absolutely love Hiero and this album by Souls is a must have for any hip-hop head. No need to skip a single track. It's a shame this album doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Heard the album a few times before I actually copped it but i purchased it cuz I had to have it and support this album. I actually cried listening to "Tour Stories" such an amazing song, such an amazing album! Heiro 4 ever!

One look at the artwork and i suddenly had this feeling that what i wanted to hear would be brought forward on this release! Amazing lyrics were expected but the ability to flow over prince paul beats didn't come as a surprise but, an experience of a life time is what i am left with! Honestly, this is truely one of my top 5 favorite albums ever made!
