Blankstairs album BTS001 combines layers of samples and melodic bits questioning what you hear. Theres is a craft to putting together music, an art to it. Listening to sounds that makes you feel like dancing is completely different from sounds that trigger imagination, literally dropping you into scenes. Ride with this album, its more then just music.
Inside of Tabil Kweli’s album Prisoner Of Consciousness is several pieces of art, all containing different representations of the content by various artist. One of which was illustrated by Allister Lee.
This piece reminds me of the facets on a diamond , each angle crafted with accuracy to present the many reflections of light to simulate brilliance or which I have translated as ones self understanding the reality and the limits of achieving a flawless life. But again, flawless could very well mean submitting to appreciation. Or does this art simply portray the current state that commercial Hip Hop resides. Crossover to his realm.
