Common Market: Tobacco Road
Buy! - (Hyena)
The Seattle hip hop duo’s masterful 2nd full-length continues the artistic evolution evidenced by their recent Black Patch War EP. RA Scion brings a more confident flow to his increasingly intricate rap lines and while the lyrics are still socially conscious, they’re less preachy and more focused on complex narratives that center around using farming and agriculture as metaphors for illuminating issues of class and community. Sabzi lays down some of his warmest, most melodic production along with a variety of great keyboard lines while keeping the beats banging. 8/14/2008 - Don Yates
