This guy's a fucking odd one.. I mean, check that amazing cover for a start. He's done the odd thing that I really think approaches some sort of genius for creating a totally unusual alliance of quite experimental, always interesting and not particularly commercial production with his lazy, drawly rhymes which don't seem to be all that much above the level of the likes of Lil' Wayne, Gucci Mane or even his chum Soulja Boy.. Misogyny, homophobia and all. It's the apparent contradiction that seems to get a hold on me.. Check 'I'm God' or 'Myspace' on Youtube for prime examples. And now he's releasing stuff on Weird Forest, which is also.. Weird. For his label debut he's taken his ambient thing to the absolute extreme, jettisoning both beats and your usual lyrical gangsta trappings in favour of full-on New Age synth soundscapes and a general tenancy towards a preachy, reflective poeticism which, as it goes on, begins to give the impression that he might actually believe that he is some sort of deity, beyond the posturing of his Based God alias. Apparently this album went down like a lead balloon when it was played in the office the other day and, at seventy minutes with little variation, it's definitely not gonna be to all tastes but I'm fully endorsing. I've never heard another record like it! THANK YOU BASED GOD.
4/10 Martin Customer review,
I might be ignorant and out of the loop but didn't Faithless do something very much like this ages ago just adding beats and bass to the equation...?
