Quick Review: Joey Ripps’ Son of 1,000 Pardons

I’m terrible at writing music reviews and even worse when they’re hip hop, so I just have a few short words about the latest Blocsonic release, Joey RippsSon of 1,000 Pardons.  Also woops – this was supposed to go up last Friday.  I’m terrible at blogging.

Anyway, I really liked the album overall.  Like I said, I don’t think I’m really all that qualified to write about hip hop, but if I enjoyed it then that means it was pretty good.  I mean, hip hop is not my go-to music genre, so it takes a really good album to catch my attention.

I was reminded quite a bit of Lupe Fiasco while I was listening – Joey has a sort of…I’m not sure how to describe it…flowing sound to most of his tracks.  Not that I’m saying that I think he ripped Lupe off or anything, that’s just the closest sound I can think of to compare him to.

I’ll stop now before I start to turn people away by accident or something.  Just go download Son of 1,000 Pardons from Blocsonic!
