Song of the Day (12/1/09)

Rapper One.Be.Lo hails from Michigan and is probably known best for his participation in Binary Star, the rap duo in which he went under the name OneManArmy and paired with Senim Silla to put out the 2000 underground hip hop classic, Masters of the Universe. However, this particular joint comes from his sophomore solo release, S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M., which is part of a series of loosely related concept albums (i.e., Project: F.E.T.U.S., The R.E.B.I.R.T.H.). Boasting a chill, old school hip hop beat laced with a flowing organ melody that melds nicely with Be.Lo's laid back, smooth rhyming style, "enecS eht no kcaB" gives the rap purist faith that conscious hip hop still is still alive and well.

Classic old school hip hop flow. He murders this. Takes me back to the days of Tribe...
