FREE MP3 DL: “An Adventure To Pepperland Through Rhyme & Space”

REVIEW: Marco Polo & Ruste Juxx’s “The Exxecution”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic To say that this album is easily one of the most ruthless hip-hop albums in some time is definitely an understatement. The Exxecution (Duck Down) is definitely killing anything and everything that dares to call itself rap music in 201 when it isn’t, so what Marco Polo and Ruste Juxx are going are just putting them in line, and one by one putting them in a dark room so that they can be cut up by surprise. No means of escape,this music is meant to be pleasurable torture, music you wanted your grandma to fear, not something you’d find her dancing to at the club. This isn’t so much the “real” hip-hop that for naysayers might be a cliche, but it is very much quality hip-hop, just like mom used to make, bake, and seal in tight baggies.

The songs on here are incredible, with “Death Penalty” sounding like you’re going to war on the streets of war pre-Disney takeover, while Rock‘s verse on “Take Money” shows that unity in sound can be had and handled if you know how to do it well. Marco Polo’s beats range from the modern styles with a grimey feel, to the old heavy funk of the mid-90’s when obscure samples were a badge of pride. When Sean Price drops his genius in “Fuckin’ Wit A Gangsta”, he’s speaking for all hip-hop heads, the overly protective ones who simply want the good shit because they know what they speak of. When Rakim once said “no mistakes allowed”, he spoke about all aspects of life. The Exxecution is an album that takes value in its mistakes and flaws, this is that album that fans will take pride in because it’s music with power, style, and character.
