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.
For the cd check the link below. Get the vinyl for the bonus cut. Also cd’s of his first album Iron Works are available on the site. Ships worldwide.
We last spoke of Mr. Young Guru here. As usual, he’s back with some real talk about the complexities of trying to survive and thrive in the current music industry.
Also kind of unrelated but still involving music, I got a kick out of seeing these N’awlins icons bring it back to basics. Mainly Mystikal and Mannie Fresh. It’s almost like they’re having their 90′s in the 000′s, if you get what I mean.
Peace to my man Q-Unique, Asf-Tck mobb. Fly song, creative video and nice hand styles. I remember all too vividly the Crack Era. Somehow in all the madness of the mid to late 80′s and the early to mid 90′s, rap took shape and became a globally dominating music form. It’s an amazing story that I’m sure someone will get rich telling.
Anyway, check out Q’s new album “Between Heaven & Hell” which is coming out on Sept. 7th, on the Fat Beats Record label.
I wonder if he’s going to do a remix called the Fat Beats era with all the ex employees?
I’ve been listening to Termanology for about a year now, thanks to my dude Bobby Lopez 5mh and DJ 3d of The Underground Railroad Radio Show, here in New York.
I didn’t even realize he had music videos until today. At first, I didn’t like his music because I thought he was too much of a line biter. If you jack more than 3 popular lines from popular rappers and put them in your music..I’m usually better off listening to the original artist. Nahmean?
After giving it a real good listen during a trip to the city, I was able to understand and appreciate his rhymes and style. He’s studied his craft and and will hopefully continue to put out good music.
I’m a strictly vinyl dj, but was still amazed by Primo’s light saber turntables. Forget flying cars, thats the illest new invention. Anyone know if those things are real or just for show?
