If you like jazz, funky-fresh beats, rap, hip-hop, or music in general – this album deserves respect. We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, the group’s newest album release since 1998. I had heard of the band before, but never listened to them considering I wasn’t listening to rap music in 1998 – I was in the 3rd grade, (really dating myself there). I may need to go back and listen to some of their older material, but I can tell you that their new material is the shit.
The opening song, The Space Program, sets precedence and tone for this album. I love that they even worked in a sound byte for Gene Wilder from Willy Wonka.
I was surprised to hear a sampling of Elton John on Solid Wall of Sound.
I love the mixture of instruments and collaborative guest appearances by André 3000, Jack White, Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Kanye, and many more!
Check it out, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
