Ski Beatz – 24 Hour Karate School
I’ve already talked briefing on this highly anticipated, long over due album. As I hoped – crazy nice album. What I like is the freshness of every track – even with the highly familiar (within the “worthwhile hip hop to listen to” circles), like Curren$y, Camp Lo, Jay Electronica, and The Cool Kids. But the real winners are the relatively unknown cats, such as Stalley and Ruz D. Bewler. Definitely hip hop in the “cool, in the know” vein, but without the pretentiousness. (Yes…hip hop CAN be “pretentious”….read: El P.) Highly recommended – Ski is still “super duper bad” on the boards.
