I went into this album expecting Little Brother type production with a splash of Foreign Exchange flare. I was not disappointed. This album is solid from beginning to end. I was initially introduced to the album by way of the first internet leaked song featuring former Slum Village artist Elzhi entitled Not Here Anymore. Over a beautifully chopped sample of the Rose Royce classic "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", Phonte and Elzhi deliver exquisite bars.
Though the album is solid from top to bottom, my personal favorite is the introspective and easy to relate to "Who Loves You More". The first time that I heard it, I probably repeated it some 15 times in a row because I was overwhelmed by the quality and the sincerity of the words he spoke towards the end of the song. This song invokes thoughts of regrets, questioning your place in life, and just morals in general. This song is hip-hop; the emotion, the content, the flow, and the clarity. Once you add a nice sound scape and Eric Roberson to the equation, you have a winner in my books.
Though the first week sales did not correctly to the story that is "Charity Starts At Home", this is a worthwhile purchase so do not be fooled by things that do not matter such as radio spins and sales, this is GOOD MUSIC!
Charity Starts at Home is one of the best albums, hip hop or not, that is out today. Phonte is a skilled lyricist who ranks up there with the likes of Nas, KRS ONE and Scarface. You actually learn something positive from these guys, and with Phonte focusing many of his songs on Black Love, which is heavily in need of promotion, he continues to prove that record sales is not his motivation for making music.
GET THIS ALBUM!!
On this solo Phonte RIPS IT!!!!! every track is real world reality rap for the everyday person. None of that unobtainable fake flawed braggadocious rap about money, yah, and ass. So to you Phonte, I apologize for the world for not recognizing on the worldly scale you deserve.
This album is HOTNESS!!!
Quote (From Everything is Falling Down):
Eastside Bing-ham St. Repper,
Tae rock the spot like I'm half Leopard.
Then pray for you lames like I'm half lepar.
And if it don't fill the coffer
motha-f the offer
A-Chew on you n*gga's like I'm black pepper,
With wine and some father beans, I'm half Lector
King *ish Kane *ish no half stepper...
This is not even scratching the surface!
If your a real Hip Hop Head, this is a must have. You'll love it Trust me.
He is in my new top 5 with Danny Brown ,Kendrick Lamar Jay Electronica and Wale
