Support True Rap Music and Buy This Album
on June 21, 2000
When people think of rap, they think of such people as Jay-Z, DMX, Hot Boys, and other no-talent emcees. This is because of what's broadcasted on MTV, BET and the radio. Groups like Haiku D'Etat(Aceyalone, Mikah 9, Abstract Rude) are not represented and are affected by the recycled garbage on TV. While other groups continue to use simple mother goose ryhme schemes about nothing, hardly even speaking english, and using simple key loops groups like Haiku D'Etat are being original. Like The Roots, they use live instrumentation, which creates an organic sound rarely heard. It works and perfectly fits the three emcees' styles. Every song is good, and if you, like me, despise how this art form is misrepresented and you're mind is above the mainstream listener, buy this cd now.
