This is the third collaborative album I have heard this week, pretty happy about this to be honest, as it’s always good when mc’s decide to work together, cause it’s hard to become bored of a collab albums. When there’s a good mix of styles and creative minds working together on a album, each verse is different from the last, and there’s a good range of instrumentals.
The “El Cortez” is a collaborative effort by three of Boston Massachusetts’ finest underground mc’s, Jack the Rapper, The Supervisor and Don Def. The album was recorded entirely over a one week in Las Vegas. The album combines the unique perspectives and rhyme styles of each the three artists into a cohesive and entertaining project, they all get a chance to show their musical as well as their lyrical skills, this album has a lot going for it from the jazzy beats, to the up beat tunes, to the straight hip hop instrumentals, and each mc has something different to say for themselves each verse is another little story. At first I wasn’t sure about all of the tunes at first but after listening to it a few times, I find even the ones I don’t like at first have grown on me now and the more I listen the more I get sucked into it, each track has that little something about it. It’s also the sort of album you could listen to regardless of your mood so a good go to when you are in those moods where you just can’t seem to choose what to listen to.
