There's a war going outside no man is safe from. Prodigy (RIP) of Mobb Deep couldn't have said it any better. From Covid, to police brutality, racial injustices, unemployment, no sports, the pending election, you name it, we're in a battle with life like we haven't seen in the last 50 years. The remedy for life's ills have often been sports and music. Sports "may" be on the horizon. With the uptick in Covid-19 cases in several states, much is uncertain as we move forward. However, music is one mainstay that we have to look forward to, as it has often been the case.
The release of Wu-Tang Clan producer 4th Disciple's "Algorythm" is just what the doctor ordered. It is a boom bap sonic and lyrically potent compilation of some of hip-hop's most underrated emcees, which include Sean Price, Sadat X, Rah Digga, Peedie Crakk, Planet Asia, Shabazz The Disciple, La the Darkman, Vinnie Paz, Soloman Childs, Jisiri X and Boaz. This is most definitely a must to have in your HIP-HOP collection.
4th Disciple checked in with ItzYourzRadio's Donni-Oh! to discuss the new album, how Sean Price birthed the entire project, how he and RZA got connected, his formula for dope beat making, identity politics, the election, the census, the golden era and DJ's "breaking" records. See below:
