    Product Details

    Summary

    Brave New Rap features production entirely from Kaz One, with guest appearances by La Coka Nostra Leader Ill Bill, EMC's Wordsworth, Braille, and Coldhard of the legendary Crucial Conflict. Track after track, Verbal and Kaz team up on what many hip-hop connoisseurs are terming to be "the return of real tag-team rap". The chemistry boils as the album blasts off with "Dedicated" and never cools off. The old-fashioned boom-bap of "Wars R Us" and "Remove The Gag" follow, reminding fans of what happens when people who know each other well make music together (e.g. Wu-Tang, EPMD). Tracks such as "Questions" and "Suck A Grenade" ponder what Hip-Hop would be like if skills were the only thing that were relevant and later, Verbal examines the American way and challenges its course with "Identity Theft" and the epic "Power II."

    Brave New Rap is the culmination of a musical relationship that was fostered over nearly a decade. As Verbal Kent laments, "Me and Kaz met at a emcee battle at a club in Chicago in 2001. This album is the culmination of 8 years of getting to know each other musically. He has produced over half my music, but never a whole record; that's why this release means the most to me. We started off recording songs in a one bedroom apartment in Dekalb, IL. I would take the trip down from the city to build with him a few days a week and after recording a few songs together, we knew we had something good going. A year or so later, Kaz moved to Chicago above a coffee house a friend of mine owned and we just continued to bang out tracks. Kaz produced more then half of my first LP (What Box) and has also produced multiple racks on every record I have ever released and people have always told me I come across best over his beats...I think now I finally agree. Building with just one producer on a record is almost like having this pre-arranged musical outline that you get to weave in and out of when writing a song. It alleviates the pressure and replaces it with urgency. This album has easily been my favorite to work on and I think it shows thru the songs. You want to like a record for a few weeks then buy some other album. Cop this one and your going to memorize every track. That's what I used to love about a great Hip-Hop album. I'm trying to bring that feeling back."

    Comment: This a good album-- beats are tight and the collabo with Ill Bill and Wordsworth is fresh. Also, the track featuring that dude from Crucial Conflict is nice.

    Comment: Sounds Amazing.Highly Anticipated and Finally Released.Computer sounds and digital samples aside, the beats are really hot. The lyrics are creative and honest. The title is definetely giving it much accord by calling it 'brave'. I enjoy the duo and this is a great addition to my collection.

    Comment: Verbal Kent is definetly not wack. That's for sure. He has a very memorable voice and flow. He could rip it over dead air. This album is one of the better discs I've heard this year, that's for sure. Like he said on track 1, this album is for people who love rap, not people who don't.

    Comment: These dudes bump, and on so many tracks use that famili.pre golden era formula of driving drums, heavy baselines, and efx's Dope, but tracks like 6, 11, 12+ an intro and 2 skits don't compare to classics like 'Questions and Fast Rapping Time' When qualifying this release as classic, but solid indeed
