The concept album. Some people love them, some people hate them. Is this album even a concept album? I know this, it’s an absolute banger and can only be listened to from beginning to end. I liked a few songs on “Will Rap for Food” they showed they had a lot of talent on the mic. I liked several songs on “Southernunderground” “Seasons” with Masta Ace is one of my tip top favourite rap songs ever! “A Piece of Strange” however is their opus, rap is still art when we’re blessed with music of this standard. Cunninlynguists have, IMHO, fallen off pretty hard since releasing this in 2006 although it would be pretty hard to top it. A critical look at the social landscape of oughts America packaged as a simply beautiful hip hop album with great cover art by Becky Cloonan to boot. Featuring Cee-lo Green and the one and only Immortal Technique. If you’re already familiar with this record and why wouldn’t you be? You gotta agree it’s pretty up there. If you’re not then get that sorted, you’re in for a treat. I’m no music expert but this really should be on your quarantine playlist!!!
