I’ve gotta give it up to these two, they constantly put out influential and quality material. Peace to them and the whole Ego Trip crew. In a world thirsty for instant gratification, it’s great to see folks stay true. Cop the third installment of their blackbook series.
The brother Ka continues to razzle, dazzle and amaze us with visuals from his recent classic album Grief Pedigree. Personally, I’ve been listening to the album since the day that I bought it from the man himself (fittingly in our beloved Brooklyn), and still haven’t gone a day without hearing it. Grief Pedigree is a slow, brooding, cold piece of art that seems to peel back a layer leading to warmth with every listen.
Methodical with his beat making and light years ahead of his counterparts when it comes to his skilled delivery of introspective and cryptic lyrics, the deliberate nature of his work is refreshing. Following the ad-libs alone can take you for a journey off of the main path.
The time that was spent writing, producing as well as mastering this album is very much appreciated by myself and his multinational and devoted fan base. The song sequencing is the icing on the cake that gives Grief Pedigree such a tight cinematic feel, which in turn lends itself to multiple listens.
Peep the new video to see exactly what I mean.
