He starts off saying saying he didn’t do the album for critical acclaim and he doesn’t need reviews, but I know deep down he wants a review on one of his favourite magazines, good old Rago Magazine out the UK! I had to do it… sorry fam! LOL Why? Because I don’t just need to tell the whole UK, but the whole world that this album is the bomb. Serious, this for anyone who likes Jay-Z, Kayne West’s earlier material and Lupe Fiasco. This is real Hip-Hop for real!!!
Ransom has impressed me before with his unique swagger and style, but this is without a doubt his biggest release so far. He is still flying the flag for Team AFF which is good too, but above all he has grown as an artist. It’s plain to see from the opening track that this release is going to be impressive and not once does it disappoint. It’s well thought out, well crafted, well executed and above all it’s entertaining. This is one of the realest albums I have heard in 2009 without a shadow of doubt. Its releases like this that make me realise how creative the underground can be!
Best tracks for me have to be the superbly Throwback produced ‘Dear Doubter’ where Ransom talks on his situation, the Knoxx produced ‘Baring My Soul’ hits hard and ‘I’m A Man First’ and ‘Shining Star’ also impressed me. This album is pure fire and well recommended from us!
