This is a bumper package with 30 tracks and the calibre of the artists is testament to the Hip Hop Informant's selection process.
Upfront we are treated to a few UK tracks, 777 known to me as an internet rapper proves that he is much more than that with Remix Baby. Mikey Faceless follows with I Remember which features E from the lost. Its a track immediately standing out a a very tasty morsel with fresh horns neatly placedfor an upbeat stomper.
I have to say that the quality of the mixdowns on each track is not uniform, with some of the tracks having a more puny or noisy feeling which makes them not stand out like some of the others.
Natureboy Rowe has four tracks on here, track 14 - 16 Candy Thang which features Pimp C and is produced by Rick Flare, When I Roll Up and Gotta Get It with Girls Gone Wild later.
There is a Authentic Bros. section where they offer up a couple of tracks. They're a duo we interviewed recently and whilst its true that some of their tracks can be a bit poppy and synthersizery these offerings are hard and much better.
Towards the end, Simple Samples offer up A Day In The Life - a clever story rap in which the MCs take the place inturn of a druggie theif, a shop owner and hilariously a Community Support Officer. We have supported these guys for a while and this track clearly demonstrates the skills that the crew have to offer.
The compilation is available for download now from http://hiphopinformant.blogspot.com.
