Soundbombing, Vol. 2 [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Conaway
With Soundbombing, Vol. 1, Rawkus introduced a ravenous stable of hungry underground MCs, but more importantly it also laid the preliminary groundwork for Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star movement. Both play a large role in the development of Soundbombing, Vol. 2 as well. Mos screens a preview from his impending solo LP, the high-tech "Next Universe," and divulges "Crosstown Beef" with his Medina Green outfit. Talib and Hi-Tek's manifestation as Reflection Eternal contributes two highly illuminant tracks: "On Mission" and the cultivated "Chaos" featuring Bahamadia.

With Soundbombing, Vol. 1, Rawkus introduced a ravenous stable of hungry underground MCs, but more importantly it also laid the preliminary groundwork for Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star movement. Both play a large role in the development of Soundbombing, Vol. 2 as well. Mos screens a preview from his impending solo LP, the high-tech "Next Universe," and divulges "Crosstown Beef" with his Medina Green outfit. Talib and Hi-Tek's manifestation as Reflection Eternal contributes two highly illuminant tracks: "On Mission" and the cultivated "Chaos" featuring Bahamadia. Rawkus' latest coup, Pharoahe Monch, gets militaristic with Shabaam Shadeeq on "WW III" and the virulent "Mayor." Eminem works his magic over a cartoon-like Beatminerz track on the neurotic "Any Man." Soundbombing, Vol. 2 contains an abundance of prolific collaborations, exemplified by Common and Sadat X's elegant "1999," Dilated Peoples and Tash's regal "Soundbombing," and Sir Menelik's "7XL" featuring Sadat X and Grand Puba. One relatively minor blemish arises in the Beat Junkies' control of the LP's continuity -- their cutting and blending methods are peculiarly ineffective, and oftentimes lack direction. User friendly for underground or mainstream fanatics, SB 2 is the quintessential Rawkus project, and the label's finest moment to date.

    For true heads only

    Obviously Matt Conaway had no idea what a dj is or does in hiphop and has never been introduced to turntablism. The beat junkies put together a hell of a mix here with nothing but the ill sh:t. The short table intros through out the mix are welcome breaks into the evolution of power and preciseness that has now become commonplace on the wheels of steel. Not to mention this album is packed with tight joints. Im a little late on this review but I had to stick up for the DJs. ..at least Evil Dee isnt asking us to 'CMON KICK IT!' all over this mix! P

    Great Production

    Eminem and Pharoahe Monch really shine on this album as Rawkus brings you more of the best hip-hop that can be found. Any Man and Mayor are the top tracks.
