GREENWEEDS & HIS SHADES OF BLUE -- ME AND A PIG'S SOW
PROD: VARIOUS. SON OF BURELL ENT.
What the deal with this cats name you might ask? His name dont say much
about his skillz trust me. So if you figuring that the boy is on about
weed smoking , you be pleasantly surprised. Damn his vocal tones remind
me of someone else but thats not important. All I know is that his style
is laidback monotone steez, like he wont ever strain his vocal chords,
nah his too smooth for that. The production contains unfamiliar elements
too. "Me and Pig's..."
has a sitar sampleand is puntuated by a nice kick ,rim shot combination.
Mr Weeds is on about having relations with a cops wife. You'll notice
that females are the frequent subject matter of most of his rhymes. 3
more joints "tempest", "nocturnalasshoes" and "Some
love" show versatility of subject matter. The latter being a golden
moment were Mr Green decides to stop thinking about the finer things in
life and spares a thought for those who dont have. 4 tracks plus 3 instrumentals
you'll find it hard to ignore this one.

taking a stand for hip hop with there beautifyl tracks "No nonsense"
has this weird opening and I couldnt tell if the track would be dope but
the sbnares dropped it was all over...I mean they were all over the track
with dope vocals. Capital D and Allstar do a reighteous job and Tone B
nimble comes in with the scratches. It done stop "cashin checks"
keeps that same high calibre sounding like something Souls would've dropped
"Representing catastrophe for master P-assed emcees/ with no mastery/
this has to be" "writers block" has this melancholy vibe
while Capital D speaks on things in his neighbourhood. "its O.K."
has some classical sounding orchestra shit in there thats amazing representing
the whole package "windy city style". What? Chicago already
got Common but what out for the next shot from All Natural. They gets
