(Rating System 1-10)
Divine Suns are a group full of lyricists and producers. They been recording together for 20 years and after listening to their new album "All Is Well" I'm mad I haven't heard their music before until now. On this album Divine Suns capture the very essence of the true hip hop sound. Their sound is a relief from the trap beats and mumble rap. Only the true hip hop heads will be able to appreciate an hip hop album like this, dope original beats and nice lyricists. The album starts out with the title track "All Is Well" which almost puts me in the mind of a earlier Wu-Tang sound, it has strong content and dope production. Best song on the album is "Reign" ft. Mae C, the production is hot and fits perfectly with the lyrics. Mae C singing on the hook makes it special, it sounds radio friendly! Another favorite song of mine is "World Gone Strange" it's hard on the production side and the bars side. Peep the lyrics:
They used to tell us lies to tear apart homes/now we catch them on smart phones/and trials are televised/but still no conviction/just like some still push dope and feel no conviction
The Divine Suns spitting some serious bars on the whole album, strong content is such a missing part of hip hop nowadays, so this album is needed for the culture. I like the song "Back To The Strip" as they give you the feel of being in a cipha on the street, made me so hype I felt like writing some bars. Overall, I like this album because of that pure hip hop sound. The lack of good sound quality is what will hold this album back from being outstanding, it needs to get mixdown and mastered again. I'm a true hip hop head so I was excited to hear great bars and dope beats. This album is definitely worth buying, click the link below to purchase.
