Band / Artist: Poetic Death
Some pretty nice garage hip-hop by Chad Marshall. The dark cover doesn't hint to how smooth and emotive parts of the album feel. Here's his website.
One thing I always disliked about hip-hop and rap is that it rarely talks about anything. Music should always do something for the mind, and not just tickle the “Food, fighting, and fucking” part of the id.
The album rides along a tone of nostalgia for a lost lover in the aftermath of a huge breakup. I recommend it if you're a fan of R&B or would be, its a humble, underrated album with a lot to offer.
