Nice! Quannum finally follows up the hype, wait and 12s with a solid full length of classic hip hop proportions from Jumbo, Vursatyl, and Rev Shine hailing from Portland, Oregon. The songs are steeped in soulful positivity, both in the percussion drunk drum heavy production, to the playful and intelligent lyric interplay, dippin into reggae stained samples, and smooth catchy choruses tight enough to just about cross over. The whole thing is excellent and handled almost entirely by the trio except for a few guest spots by Gift Of Gab, Lateef, Lyrics Born, DJ Shadow
and J-Live. Tracks include "Fever", "What If It's True", "Hellohihey", "Fa Show", "Resist", "Emerge", "Skeletons", "Head Exercise", and more.
