Recently had a short exchange with Done about the underappreciated goodness of Whoridin' by The Whoridas. I revisited an assortment of Hobo Junction tracks I have in the collection, and recalled that I was a fan of crew member Eyecue.
Naturally, I followed with some internet-ing to see what he's been up to since the late 90s. I found this:
First time I've read her work. Didn't like this one.
She's a talented writer, but I feel there needs to be balance between technique and storytelling. There's just way too much going on stylistically in this book, to the point of distraction. She's literature's answer to Chip-Fu on the Nervous Breakdown album. (at least she is here)
Also, whenever her characters were speaking patois, it felt like her characters were trying to speak patois.
A couple of years ago, I had a chance to have dinner with the Brother and his peoples. They were all really cool people, and I'm happy to see that they're all still working hard and releasing quality material.
I'm a bit late to this small project, but I like it a lot. Hits at the right spot of freshness and nostalgia.
Peep the video, and download the EP if you're diggin' it. (Name your price)
