A little more hip-hop for the Soul

From glancing over the recent posts it seems hip-hop has dominated the blog. So as a natural front runner, I'll add another lyrically powered yet musically comforting album to the mix. The artist of record here is Consequence. He clearly has studied under Kanye, who has a number of appearances in both producing and rapping on the album. Furthermore, the title, "Don't Quit Your Day Job," harks back to the theme of Kanye's first album of College Dropout. And unfortunately, those skits that try to add insight into the artist are ever present. There are of course good things that come with Kanye as a mentor, like that sweet sound that touches your soul while still a part of modern day hip-hop. So without further ado, enjoy this solid album that contains a few gems that you will no doubt be singing in shower, car, subway, maybe all 3 at once.
