Talk To Em Vol 1.
CD REVIEW BY CHEW OF RAPMULLET.COM
Everybody welcome the good Doctor to the Rapmullet.com review section. Shout to the Numba Runnas too, thats a fly name for a group. Straight up about the only thing I didn't like about this CD was the cover. Some cats think that shit don't matter but in the endless sea of MC and DJs you need to stand out and well that shit is small change. Rhyme wise Doc got endless lyrics, I think he could easily go a couple hundred bars deep on one take, the hunger is there.
"What You Do" got my ear from jump. One listen and you know he from Harlem, that's a given. I was diggin' the pose cut "Numba Runs", I mean the crew is hungry but they need some polish. "King Of NY" was my favorite shit, he was slashing throats with the flow. On some true blue mixtape shit "Alright" is the wheel. Doc getting a little deep, a little introspective with the rhyme. That shit is important man, MCs need to be able to releate to the people and Doc on the right path with this track. Same with "My #1", although the hook could use some work.
I'm seeing a trend with the artist mixtapes; the beat selection is off man. Doc OO Johnson can flat out rhyme, he got flows, he got that Harlem style but what he doesn't have is the beats. That shit is 50/50 with sound man. MCs gotta hold the listeners ear so they can peep that shit in the rhyme. Truth be told I'm toughest review wise on the cats I think got potential and maybe just need some direction. Doc is as dope a MC as I heard in a minute. (8/21/06)
