Beneath The Surface


A triumph in the frequently exploitative genre of producer-driven rap compilations, OD's dark and mellow Eastern-influenced productions lend breathing room to the avant-garde double-time flows of the oft-inconsistent Project Blowed camp. Once again Freestyle Fellowship shine with the modern day folk tale “The Sun Took a Day Off and the Moon Stood Still” and a whole gang of rappers assume the role of a variety of animals on the inspired, eight-minute “The Farmer's Market of the Beast.” (Radioinactive steals the show, rhyming in the voice of a goat.)
