Sub-Surface The Others: CDBaby.com Featured Album 3/22-3/25.

Post by The Afronaut »

For those of you not familiar w/ CDBaby.com, its a online store that hosts a multitude of CDs by various artists and genres from around the world...Starting today our album will be featured on the website's FRONT PAGE after being selected as one of the recent best from the CDBaby editing staff...They also wrote this review of The Others:

This trio flexes a style they call "Boom Box Hip Hop," and they define it like this: "Hip hop that hearkens back to a time where there was a balance of style and substance in the music." With this mission statement in hand, they've taken their sound to the streets, standing up to the current state of hip hop with a strength and intelligence that can't be denied. Backed by beat heavy, classic soul sampled production, the focus here is on lyrics and movement, articulating ideals that are clearly being shoved to the side in the modern stratosphere of rap. It isn't a forceful, revolutionary approach, and it doesn't need to be. They shed preaching in favor of pragmatism, citing a time when hip hop music was art and culture, not a factory churning out cookie cutter MC's by the dozen. It's refreshing and heavy, a clear reminder that there's still conscious lyricism flowing through the veins of MC's that are fed up with the low brow posturing that is sadly superseding the artistic integrity in hip hop. The rap game's playing field needs more teams like this.

Stop through and listen to snippets of the album if you have yet to hear it, AND if you havent as of yet picked up a copy, this is the PERFECT opportunity to get one shipped directly to your home!...Still only 10 Dollars (plus shipping).

"What's up? You say you wanna be down?
Ease back, or f### get beat down.
Out my face, fool I'm the illest,
Bulletproof, I die harder than Bruce Willis.
Got my crew in effect, I bought em new Jags,
So much cash, gotta keep it in Hefty bags.
All I think about is keys and Gs
Imagine that, me workin at Mickey D's (ha ha ha ha).
That's a joke cause I'm never gonna be broke,
When I die there'll be bullets and gunsmoke.
Ya don't like my lifestyle? f**k you!
I'm rollin with the New Jack crew.
And I'm a hustler.

H-U-S-T-L-E-R hustler
New Jack, New Jack.........."
