Tech N9ne Collabos – Dominion Review

This album is fantastic as it shows that every member of Strange Music is not only talented, but works extremely well with the other members. Tech N9ne has built a strong house and will only continue to be a powerhouse in the rap game.

The production is incredible with a huge range of different beats to allow for an extremely diverse set of tracks. The backings each create the perfect atmosphere for the type of song that they are as well as blending together with a top level of cohesion. There are no problems with the production here and Strange Music should continue with this mentality.

The lyricism is amazing with every artist showing that they are as talented as their leader. Tech leads the way with plenty of examples of top quality wordplay and the rest of his troops fall in line with their own stunning displays. Each artist here does a really magnificent job here and proves that Strange music makes strong decisions about who they sign.

Overall, with every artist here being a guest and doing a great job, this release may be a bit of a long slog to the end, but the end result stays fresh with the switching artists making things interesting. The house that Tech N9ne built is a strong one and only continues to get stronger.

Ces Cru – Codename: Ego Stripper

This is a nice varied album. Both Godemis and Ubiquitous are good on the album showcasing their abilities on the mic. They both keep their signature styles and flow on every track while simultaneously fitting in with all the different styles of production.

The production is excellent on the album. Best listened to through headphones, it has a lot of range and a lot of depth. It also works well with Ces Cru’s lyricism and the tones of their voices.

The tracks are laid out well so that the changes in tempo of the songs are where you need a break from either the fast of slow beats. This leads to a much easier listen and a more enjoyable project.

Overall this is a good album for Ces Cru fans, as well as a good project to attract new ones. It shows everything good about the duo and should be viewed as a milestone in their musical careers.
