Joys Of Life & Pain

4.90 4

Head-nodding, truth-telling soulful hip hop from underground Chi producer/MC Thaione Davis – who we actually hadnt heard much from in the previous couple of years – so it's good to have him back! Even though it's been a minute since he's checked in with us, this is actually Thaione's 9th album. He's not only a long-running independent hip hop Chi presence, he's also one of our most consistently high quality players – he gets better and better! He's sharp enough of a lyricist and wise enough of a producer to make music that's built to stand the test of time – skirting trends in favor of truth and soul. Most cats don't do it like this anymore. Good to have you back, Thaione! Includes "Conflict Resolution", "Control", "Hold Me Down", "Galaxie's A Problem" feat 80's Babies, "The Joys Of Life & Pain" with Race of Primeridian, "2 Finger Peace Sign" with Adad, "Everything is Everything", "Anythingthatbenefit", "Hypnotize", "Demonstrating Literature", "8 Bit Analysis" and more – plus the CD only bonus track "No Reciprocal". (Nicely done digipak, too – with an insert card and sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy
