Yet another great album to add to my playlist. There isn't too much hip hop out there that strikes my fancy. I've been restricted to EL-P, 2Pac, and various other names. I'm proud to say that G & D are definitely another hip-hop group that I can thoroughly enjoy. I can describe their sound fairly simply as well. G & D sounds like Afroman with a serious message and some trippy effects.
Right off the bat, you can tell that G & D are a bunch of characters being that they start off with a verbal skit. Other skits are scattered throughout the album as well as tiny little intermissions. The entire album also carries with it so much soulful weight that it is hard not to get into it immediately. The lyrics in The Message Uni Versa also become politically charged at certain points. Such is the case in "Good Morning Amerikkka" and "War Drums." This album will please even a hippy stoner with the song, "The Stomp." The entire song seems to be recording conversations throughout a club with an electronic backing playing music.
It is refreshing to hear a group such as G & D amongst a sea of pointless hip-hop acts speaking only of snapping their fingers and shaking ghetto ass booties. The Message Uni Versa is a prime example of a truly great hip-hop album. That's right rappers, it is possible to make a hip-hop album with substance that doesn't carry with it, that raunchy, remedial single to hook all of the mainstream idiots.
