Got to honoustly say that we didn’t really know a great lot about the man S1. Only knew him from the S1&Illmind album from back in the days, on which he really killed the intro track with the Rhodes over the George Benson – The Changing World sample. Now hearing this cd, it’s a damn shame we didn’t tap into this guy earlier.
He is the producer from Strange Fruit, never knew that before, they always come with the heat. This album contains all S1 (Symbolic One) productions with a wide range of artists rapping or singing over them, just to name a few like: Big Pooh, Rah Digga, Tanya Morgan, Skyzoo. The beats are crazy with ill samples and the dude plays some mean ass boards, and his style has a breath of fresh air to it. Be sure to go get that disc, it’s worth your while.
