Planet Asia Vinyl, CD & tapes by Planet Asia at Norman Records
Boston’s Brick Records (MF Doom, Statik Selektah) drops some mighty throwback goodness from Planet Asia. The beats provided by izznyce have that same balance of class and whomp that tends to bring the best out of Ghostface Killah. The snare on ‘Hood Legends’, for instance, sounds more like someone shooting at an oil barrel. Aided by the likes of AZ and Hus Kingpin, Planet Asia chats some well-worn stuff about the rap game in the style of Nas, Ghostface et al. Good to see that he’s still going strong after nearly two decades.
Apollo Brown & Planet Asia
Powerful collab with former half of Cali Agents, Fresno’s Planet Asia, providing the rhymes over deep and scratchy soul selections from Detroit’s Apollo Brown. Willie the Kid, Guilty Simpson and Tri-State each make an appearance. Raw, minimal and basic with a lazy small hours feel and an intoxicating and utterly underground vibe. Green / black smoke coloured vinyl or CD.
