Editorial Reviews

After selling hundreds of thousands of records as part of Sunz Of Man, Hell Razah releases his official debut album, "Renaissance Child." Boasting nothing but power-packed rhymes, Razah easily holds his own alongside heavyweight features such as MF DOOM, Talib Kweli, Ras Kass, Killah Priest, Tragedy Khadafi and R.A. the Rugged Man. Even the production team enlisted here is first rate, with flawless beats from MF DOOM, 4th Disciple, Bronze Nazareth and more. "Renaissance Child" is a meaningful and intelligent record which is a breath of fresh air in today's stale era of so-called hip-hop. The Rennaisance has begun.

It's been awhile since we've had a true Wu album in all the expected aspects. The grimy production, the dirty samples, the mathematical lyrics that drop knowledge from bar to bar; while Ghostface and Masta Killa both released exceptional albums last year, neither man really captured the spirit of the Wu; the 36 Chambers appeared to have closen for good. Enter one of the least known Wu-affiliates, yet possibly the beginning of a renaissance.

Heads know 2007 is going to be the biggest year for the Wu since the turn of the millenium, and leading the way for what appears to be a phenomemal rebirth of hip-hop's greatest crew is Hell Razah; an emcee who has been down with the W for well over a decade, yet has never gotten noticed outside of his group, Sunz of Man, who in themselves are often recognized as "Killah Priest & Friends." Hell Razah proves on his debut album that he may very well be the best Wu-associate in 2007, even surprassing Priest; his debut, Renaissance Child, is just as brilliant as Heavy Mental was, and as much as I adore Priest's music, Razah's flow is far more engaging. The production on this album is also brilliant; the stand-out cut, Project Jazz, is possibly the best produced hip-hop song I've heard in YEARS; it's just that great a piece of music. No surprise that MF DOOM produced it, or that DOOM and Talib Kweli both appear on the cut.

Guests on this album consist of an underground dream-team; R.A. The Rugged Man, Talib Kweli, MF DOOM, Ras Kass, Tragedy Khadafi, Priest, and of course, other Wu-affiliates. The production, as a whole, is just mind-blowing; it's hard to believe an underground emcee can assemble such a large, diverse collection of music, and still release a cohesive album, but Hell Razah manages to on Renaissance Child.

Hell Razah preforms very well on his debut as a soloist "The Renaissance Child." He drops that east coast 5% knowledge on pretty much every track but he still has that thuggish street feel to him. A majority of the songs are produced by 4th disciple and Bronze Nazareth. On a lot of their tracks you will find it really easy to relax too, this is true with the story of complicated drug dealings on "Los Pepes pt.1" The beat is beautiful and Razah sounds like one of the top five dead or alive on it, as does Bronze Nazareth. Another song that hooked me in was "Buried Alive." the bass will get you amped up and Razah's lyrics will assist "I'm back, holdin' that ratchet, y'all left it on my casket/A rap kid that opened up my CD plastic, Another birth of a MC classic/I Hell Raz' the dead, when I speak to the masses." Even though Hell Razah is a phenomenal lyricist he sometimes comes off as too force full with his beliefs and he over fills the glass with knowledge, and sometimes the beats that he chooses to rhyme to are a bit annoying to listen to, this is true with the song "Musical Murdah" also Hell Razah's hooks are, at times a "stretch" But if you a true fan of lyrics and story telling raps then you will fully appreciate this release. Other songs you will love are "Project Jazz" and "Millenuim Warfare." So get it and i hope this helped you out.

Hell Razah always seemed like a star in the making back with the Sunz Of Man, but 'Renaissance Child' is even better than fans could have hoped. Razah is an absolute flamethrower on this record, touching on everything from religion to Dick Cheney. While he doesn't shy from talking about life on the streets here and there, don't pick this up if you're expecting a typical hardcore hip-hop album. This is a record that you'll need time to wrap your head around .

Thankfully, the production team is ready to keep up. The beats on this record are top-shelf, mixing that classic 'haunting piano' Wu-Tang sound with some old-school horn section stuff. Add in killer verses from some of the underground's top MCs (particularly Ras Kass and the Rugged Man, who completely tears it up), and you've got the best album yet of 2007.

Hell Razah finally drops a solo album of his own after a decade or so of rapping and being a Wu-Affiliate. Also part of a few groups, released a few albums with the Sunz of Man & one with Black Market Militia as well, and is also part of the Maccabees (though they have no group album that has been released yet), so you know he is a veteran in the rap game, though flying under the radar of most people, I would suspect. This debut is a very nice album and was a long time coming. With 15 songs, you get 2 that are almost classics, 4 ar eok, the other 9 are good or real good songs. His style, voice, and content is very similar to that of Killah Priest (who is in all 3 of the groups Hell Razah is, and they have done many of songs with one another through the years as well) so you know just from that, that he has some skill and potential. Of the 15 songs, you get guests on 6 of them. Production is nice as well and handled by many different people. Khrome, Dirty Needles and Bronze Nazareth each do 2 songs, 4th Disciple, Dev1, MF Doom, Shuko, Fokis, Jordan River Banks, Smokeshop, DJ Battle and Fabreizio Sotti all do 1 song. A nice album to have from an under rated and unfortunatley lesser know but talented emcee.

#1 - 7.5 (short intro)
#2 - 9 (nice beat)
#3 - 8.5 (f/ Tragedy Khadafi, R.A. the Rugged Man & Timbo King -- also on R.A.'s "Legendary Classics, Vol. 1" album -- good beat)
#4 - 8.5 (f/ Talib Kweli & Viktor Von -- nice upbeat jazz track)
#5 - 7.5 (f/ Bronze Nazareth)
#7 - 7.5
#8 - 9 (nice beat)
#9 - 7.5
#10 - 8
#11 - 9 (f/ Killah Priest -- nice beat)
#12 - 9.5 (tight beat)
#13 - 9 (f/ Ras Kass -- nice beat)
#14 - 9.5 (f/ Killah Priest & Timbo King -- tight beat)
#15 - 8.5
#16 - 9 (nice beat)
