Fly Anakin and Koncept Jack$on's latest album is hip hop at its finest

Fly Anakin and Koncept Jack$on's latest album is hip hop at its finest

From the moment the beat drops on the opening track, it's clear that the style of Fly Anakin and Koncept Jack$on's Chapel Road is influenced more by pathos, anger, and crunchy weed than the plush leather sounds of blemish free top 40.  With a voice that seems uncannily similar to that of Brooklyn rapper AZ, Fly Anakin gives the opener a straight ahead, circa 1994 flow that dwells more on mental instability and a desperate need for catharsis than an auto-tuned worship of yachts and Bentleys.

Carrying the flow of Fly Anakin and Koncept Jack$on are the strong use of lo-fi backing tracks and minor harmonies on songs like “''03 steve harvey remix” and “swanton bomb”. Although there are some tracks which seem superfluous, in general this album is superb, start to finish.
