REVIEW: G-DO & Xception: The Otherside

Leave a comment

CoverG-DO & Xception are back to drop their fourth album, this time it’s on Goal! Records. I’m glad this album came along; I was starting to think that R.A. The Rugged Man was going to have the only great hip-hop album of the year, luckily he’s got company. ‘The Otherside’ is slightly different from their previous releases but you still know what you’re getting, great beats with some great songs over them. These guys have an impressive track, every album so far has been great and ‘The Otherside’ is no exception. I can’t remember the last time a hip-hop group or rapper has had this type of consistency. Right from the first track ‘On We Go’ you know that this is going to be a good one, that quality continues through the entire album. People that dig good hip-hop if you don’t already know G-DO & Xception ‘The Otherside’ is an album you need to check out.

REVIEW: G-DO & Xception: A Tribute to Fela Kuti- Felatastic

Leave a comment

G-Do & Xception are back; this time with an album that’s a tribute to Fela Kuti. The last album was great so they had a lot to live up to here. As you may have guessed from the title the album is a tribute to Fela Anikulapo Kuti, this originally started out as just a one song tribute to Fela Kuti but it quickly snowballed into ten songs, and I for one am very glad it did. This album is great no matter what side you look at it from. The beats are incredibly unique but have enough of a throwback to keep them fun and the lyrics and rapping on here is up to a level of the likes of some of the guys in Hieroglyphics. These guys are so damn talented they have seemingly no limits, they chose to focus their talents into this tribute album and I don’t see how it could have turned out better by anyone on the planet. Fans of hip-hop (especially the quality underground variety) get on this, you will not be disappointed!

REVIEW: G-DO & Xception: Chicago to Amsterdam

Leave a comment

Chicago rapper Xception and Amsterdam producer G-DO are back with a new EP, one that’s about the places, events, and people. As you can guess the title comes from the places that G-DO & Xception do. The EP came out on Goal! Records in August and is available for free download. If you don’t know about G-DO & Xception, they’re a team that’s putting out some of the best new hip-hop that I’ve heard in years. This EP is a great place to start if you haven’t heard their debut album. And if you have heard the album, I imaging you’ve wanted more G-DO & Xception. The EP features songs as homage to both Chicago and Amsterdam (‘Chicagoing’ and ‘The Damn’). Both are great songs, ‘Chicagoing’ is a perfect choice to start out the EP, I love everything about the song, it might be the best on the album. And ‘The Damn’ is a great bookend to close things out, it picks things up after things start to wind down and leaves you wanting more G-DO & Xception, and as soon as possible. ‘I Still Love H.E.R.’ features the newest member of Goal Music Group, Shishani. The flow on this song is so smooth; this is the type of song you can never skip. ‘Family Matters’ is a great middle song to hold the whole thing together; this is a damn quality song that ranks up there with some of the best songs about family. ‘Timeless’ has Muliplist making an appearance, he showed up on a couple of tracks on the ‘Mood of the Music’ album. I’m glad to have him back because there’s talent that works just right with G-DO & Xception. As you might expect there’s not a bad song on this EP, any fan of hip-hop simply needs to hear this, no excuse not to.

1. Chicagoing
2. I Still Love H.E.R.
3. Family Matters
4. Timeless
5. The Damn
