In a time where the term hip hop can be associated with vulgar displays of senseless excess,empty and often overtly violent and sexual lyrics, it isn't often you find a group who digs into the heart of this enigmatic art form. Returning to the roots of a social and cultural movement designed as an avenue for social and political change. To shout loudly at injustice. To poeticly deify the heart of the streets where the lower class struggles remain hidden from the blinded eye of a seemingly uncaring political and culturally empirical society. This is where the movement came from, and impacting social change fell into it's wake, following like the ripple of time,the defiant fault line in a mountain range of injustice. Naturally the popularity of the movement spread into the main stream and the watered down version of this once more pure form of artistic defiance is prevelant on the mainstream radio and music video outlets. The bad taste left in the mouth of many who despise without understanding the genre can be blamed on this commercialization of art, making it a product, mass produced and relieving it from any sort of artistic responsibility . With this in mind we present to you Prophet Allah and Mad Sci's 'Perfect Timing'. An example of the return to the roots of hip hop while progressivly pushing forward in production and overall sound. We encourage you to listen closely to the lyrics, to analyze what is being said. Take it as a responsibilty to think for yourself and find your own perspective. In return we will take it as a responsibilty to the art form. Thank you for taking a minute to check us out and we greatly appreciate the continued support.
