Editorial Reviews

I Self Devine (frontman for Micranots, 1/2 of Semi Official & one of the founding members of The Dynospectrum with Slug, Musab & Gene Poole) returns with his debut solo album, Self Destruction. After spending the better portion of 10 years as one of the underground's favorite MC's, I Self steps out on his own and creates his most personal and engaging effort to date. Rhymesayers. 2005.

I Self Devine is the epitome of an all too much ignored hip-hop veteran. The Los Angeles native immersed himself into the hip-hop scene as a rapper and graffiti artist at the tender age of 13 in 1985. After encountering gang-related problems, I Self was incarcerated in 1987 for one year. After some time of living on the street, his mother moved them both to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1989, where I Self then began his real journey into hip-hop. In 1991-92, the Micranots (I Self + DJ Kool Akiem) were formed after I Self spent a second sum of time in jail. Upon I Self's return, the duo recorded 6 full-length albums before recording their 7th and final album for Rhymesayers Entertainment in 2003. During that time, I Self also worked with Mr. Gene Poole, Musab & Slug to create The Dyno Spectrum in 1998. In 2003, I Self also fronted Semi Official with label-mate DJ Abilities. And that brings us to I Self Devine's debut solo album, "Self Destruction" (2005).

If you've heard much work from the aforementioned collectives, you may notice that I Self doesn't get too personal with his lyrics. At times he favors a more universal and sometimes a personally detached role in his music. While many could feel I Self's struggle in his lyricism, there was still much mystery behind the man that went untold. That said, "Self Destruction" gives I Self a fresh start. Here, I Self gets much more intimate with his audience, sharing his struggles and personal tales of hardship and overall outlook in his most gripping album to date.

I Self recruited four critically acclaimed hip-hop vets to produce his most ambitious record yet. The highly underrated Jake One produces 3 cuts here, and brings some nice boom bap elements to the record. Bean One & Vitamin D also produce 3 very nice cuts.

I have been a Micranots fan for a while now and I dont know why they dont have any fans they are great hiphop. I buy every CD that has anything to do with the Micranots and they never dissapoint. Anyway this CD is a great listen, its a different sound than the Micranots but it has I Self Devine in it so you know it will be dope. When I went to see Atmosphere in NY the Micranots were there and they tore it up I Self freestyled incorperating words that the crowd gave him it was nice, not as good as the Oddjobs best live performance of the show but nice.

Once again, the Rhymesayers label never fails to disappoint...Micronots frontman I Self Devine releases his debut solo album and to much respect from yours truly. I Self Devine brings his A-game to the table with an unmatched lyrical arsenal and backed by some of the best beats released in 2005 courtesy of Seattle's Jake One and Vitamin D as well as Atmosphere's Ant. With Atmosphere being my favorite hip hop duo, I have noticed that I have a strong love for Ant's production and his contributions to this release would be no different, Ant's production on "Get Cha Money On", "Feel My Pain", "All I Know", "Overthrow" and "Sunshine" are amongst my favorites on the album. But I am not going to take away from what Jake One and Vitamin D bring to this release. "Live In The Moment" and "Sex Sex Sex" also ranks in the top 5. I will admit that I was hesistant about buying this for a while because I wasnt sure if Devine would hold his own weight, but I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to get this and the guest appearances by Mazta I and Budah Tye will add to the enjoyment. Another treat is that about 20 seconds after the end of "Sunshine", there is a bonus hidden track. Underground fans will enjoy this release from the most successful underground label in hip hop.
