Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD Sour Soul LP

Album reviewed by:

I began listening to this album strictly because I saw that BadBadNotGood was making the beats. BadBadNotGood is a improvisational, hip-hop instrumental trio from Canada. I heard of them through their work with Odd Future and was immediately attracted to their sound. I knew very little about Ghostface Killah other than he was a member of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, but I've heard his raps are like elaborate stories and this intrigued me.The LP is like a smooth trip through 90s hip-hop mixed with James Bond sounding instrumentals. The song "Gunshowers" is a prime example of this unique sound."Simple minds get blown, shattered into piecesMy thesis is thick like the Book of EliWe Live we die, we put 'em in the skyFree your mind as a slave like the Fourth of July" Anytime I can hear hip-hop with live instrumentals, I'm all for it so this album was a real treat for me. The dense, driving bass lines are never generic and give each song their own feel. Jazz fueled drums provide an interesting, rhythmic feel of early 60s jazz-rock fusion. Multilayered, indie sounding guitars are the bridge intertwined between the two.Overall the Sour Soul LP is a unique and unconventional take on hip-hop and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an overall sound that I can say I never heard anything like. I think it was an unlikely collaboration, but it completely worked. I hope to hear more music fusion like this in the future.
