Hip Hop Artist Absoloot Offers Listeners A New School Style With An Old
Unique and unconventional, Absoloot's brand of hip hop deviates far from the
beaten path. Focusing on content as opposed to a jam of profanity, the
artist places emphasis on his lyrical prowess and state presence instead of
shock to attract listeners. His latest release titled "My Way" is the
continuation of an explosive musical talent who is just getting started.
Absoloot is cut from the same cloth as
many hip hop performers before him, but represents an artist with a style
completely unique and divergent from his predecessors. Since 2006, he has
released two albums each evolving the genre to different levels and giving
listeners a fresh spin on the old school genre. Refusing to become just
another face in the hip hop crowd, Absoloot uses intelligent lyrical content
and live instruments to attract listeners and offer them a deeper message
than the prescribed money and cars routine implemented by many rappers
within the vein.
Released under family owned SOC Records, his album "My Way" is the latest
installment in Absoloot's catalogue and gives listeners a refined brand of
hip hop that is intelligent and complete with old and new school style.
Following his 2006 release titled "Absoloot Raw", the new album perfectly
documents the maturity of the artist as well as the fact that he has
established his place in the hip hop world. Clean content and live
instrumentals mesh perfectly with deep, provocative lyrics to create a rare
breed of hip hop devoid of self promotion and focus on material possessions.
After receiving a great deal of airplay following his debut release,
Absoloot has ventured into a variety of different avenues with his music.
Seven of his tracks were licensed by Don King to promote the James Toney vs.
Samuel Peters fight I and II. The songs "Pleasure and Pain" and "Fire" from
his album "My Way" received significant airplay in Brussels and France
respectively. Absoloot was also invited to the Grammys in 2009 in
recognition of his latest album.
Absoloot is currently in the process of recording his third album as well as
producing other artists. He is also working on releasing his first video for
the "My Life" album which is currently available on iTunes, Rhapsody,
Amazon, and other online music sites. For more on Absoloot, his explosive

I remember asking them to play that song over and over again. Still to this day every time I play that song it’s like hearing it for the first time again.”

A consistent theme in the interview was the importance of being the change you want to see effected in the world. Behaving not necessarily in accordance to how the world is, but as the world could and even should be. The interview laid bare Absoloot’s understanding of the importance of image. Not just the image projected to the world, but also to ourselves and our children. Absoloot has pushed hard to showcase a positive image, not just in his craft, but also in the example set by his life.

Absoloot’s new single 99% and his soon to be released album Banksters, highlight the inciting themes of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Most notably the widening economic gap between the top 1% and everyone else. In addition to the unscrupulous behavior of people in power that used greed and complex math as a pretense to gamble; precipitating the economic collapse. Implicit in the song is an issue that surfaced throughout the interview; the need for education. Education in the sense of making oneself aware of the forces and ideas shaping one’s world.
