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 Ripps‘ Son 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!
