There are a few sparse moments that do glide through without the need of imagery, sounds that run the gamut between foggy and sinister to evil hip-hop backbeats that funk things up even while dipping a listener right into an aural dread. This is a paradise if one is to take the strong and thick beats and appreciate them without catchy rhythmic hooks or extended song structures. Instead, these are brief urban beats meant to hammer home the mood of a story. And that story ainít too bad, but it is made all the richer through the work contained here.
