Pick of the Day – July 19th: John Robinson/Lewis Parker – International Summers

John Robinson & Lewis Parker – International Summers

John actually explains the entire format and rundown of the album at the beginning of track one.  The album succeeds on all fronts – it could be played anywhere, anytime, and not just for a specific audience.  If there is a slight lean, I’d say it’s a bit boom-bap jazzy, which is definitely a good thing.  Dope beats via Lewis, who has a really nice golden age-ish flavor to his production – worked with Ghostface on his Fishscale and More Fish releases. You get strong rhymes from JR and the Londoner Lewis – they talk about the every day shit you want to hear.  No car and chick talk – just some real shit.  The guests are pretty dope too.  I definitely enjoyed this album. Recommended.
