5.0 classicJoeyCatunta | January 14th 10

This album is crazy dope! Its true if you don't understand Japanese the listening experience is limited in a sense but I find regardless I still bug out over the crazy flows and bizzaro-awesome production. It should also mean that production includes Omid (aka OD from Los Angeles whose produced for Aceyalone, 2Mex, Murs, Busdriver) Sole (god to anticon crotch riders) and K-the-I??? (the peoples champ of weirdo rap).

3.0 goodBulldog | January 13th 10

Root Is The New Leaf is a collaboration album between Japanese rappers Kaigen and Meiso. I stumbled upon this album on Rhapsody while desperately looking for new music to review. Originally angered by the fact that the lyrics are not recited in English 95% of the time, this album, despite being - :wince: - just noise, is enjoyable. The hyper-fast rapping of Kaigen and Meiso could draw comparisons to Twista, and the ancient oriental music elements within the half-pop/half-rap beats are good enough to make this album listenable. However, it's lack of vast replay potential practically makes it novelty rap, or rather, rap's equivalent of a coffee table book - something you have more to say you have it, without really liking it a whole lot. Either way, this is fun, mindless noise*.
* = If you don't speak Japanese.
