Del, Souls Of Mischief, Casual and Pep Love return for a damn fine new full length. As if you need us to tell you, the Hieros are one of Cali's longest running crews – and Full Circle is, for the most part, a pretty laidback affair. Pep Love really seems to kind of stand out as the leader this time; it's not so much that Pep gets the most mic time (although that might be the case), but his quick, sharp, yet still sort of leisurely delivery kind of serves as the glue between sort of co-captain Casual's harder, more booming delivery and the others. Soulful progeny Goapele appears on "Make Your Move" and the title track, and Abstract Rude rocks a verse in "100,000 Indi". Full Circle may not break any new ground, but it's a warm visit with longtime friends that we wouldn't trade for 100 flavour du jour MCs and producers that get all of that praise in CMJ and Entertainment Weekly. Other tracks include "Fantasy Island", "Powers That Be", "Shift Shape", "Classic", "Chicago", "Halo", "Love Flowin", "Let It Flow", "7 Sixes" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Like It Should Be
Jive, 1994. Used
One of the many lost Hiero efforts on Jive. Like other early Hiero LPs this one's got nice jazzy Bay area beats and is still filled with some of the energy that they seemed to lose a bit of before their indie renaissance in the late 90s. 14 tracks counting the intro, including "Brown ... CD
