"OKAYPLAYER REVIEW OF ROCK AND A HARDPLACE!"

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

OKAYPLAYER REVIEW OF ROCK AND A HARDPLACE!

They are known as Minlus McCracken, consisting of MC's Minlus and McCracken, and together they sound like Fat Joe from his chainsaw era. Rock And A Hard Place has the kind of cover artwork that might make people mistake it for a GBH or other punk release, but this is rap music, and very good rap music at that.


The two combine sample-based production with a band that they tour work, and both styles are done with equal emphasis, so it's not just a band with half-assed musicians or producers with samples worse than dollar bin gems. They celebrate their love of hip-hop from the early 90's by rhyming hard over beats that are raw, distorted, and a cratediggers dream, as they rhyme about the metaphors that are really real. They don't rhyme about things they aren't, or situations that they have no experience with, they touch on how rough life can be but how things can change if one has the courage to move forward. When it's serious, you'll hear them touch on politics briefly, but if they're talking about wanting a bag of weed or a few drinks, they also talk about sharing that with everyone.

They remind me a bit of what Cypress Hill and House Of Pain on their first albums, where there was some sense of magic that you were witnessing and you wanted to tell everyone that you were a fan. Both groups changed their formula slightly for their second efforts, and while I encourage all artists to progress with their music, it will be interesting to see and hear how they will follow something that will be worthy of classic status in ten years. It's that good, and it may move people to request them on the radio, and see if they can take their mission to phase 2. I hope they proceed and succeed.

(Rock And A Hard Place is available through CDBaby.)
