Eminem – Kamikaze

Published

on

Surprise, surprise! Detroit’s very own Eminem dropped a “Kamikaze” bomb in the form of his new album at midnight gracing fans with some brand new listening material. The thirteen track album comes just under a year from his last effort “Revival” and has Em rapping in an angrier late 90’s reminiscent form sure to be embraced by longtime fans. Tracks like “Stepping Stone” touch on his relationship with group D12, where as “Not Alike” mimics modern rappers & has fellow hometown lyrical legend Royce da 5’9″, & on the album titled “Kamikaze” he wastes no time calling out critics in true Marshall Mathers form.

Mark Cooper aka Player 1 in “THE ALLSPARK”.

Published

on

There is commentary from the album's host throughout as we hear the analyzation's of Player 1's own life & lessons.

The nerdcore specialist is back at it again! Player 1 Mister Mark Cooper brings us along for a hip-hop infused audible video game in his incredible follow up to last year’s stellar “I Am Player One“.  Incredible indeed! Well traveling through the game Player 1 gets “super lost” on his way to discovering “THE ALLSPARK“. Aided by Optimus Prime & fused with the lyrical creativity of Mark Cooper’s storytelling & production the produces quite the gem. Crown Royal, Magic ft. Key Jay, & Frame Data were some of the early standouts in the first half of “Allspark“. “Frame Data” was like an in your face retro arcade game beat of gold before sliding into the more mellow “Stormtroopers”.

There is commentary from the album’s host throughout as we hear the analyzation’s of Player 1’s own life & lessons.  As we traverse deeper through the game alongside his daunting task to capture the Allspark & return home we are doused with different sounds that scream depth, tying together all the elements & executed precisely in the theme provided.

Super Saiyan” felt like theme music to the ’80s & was a favorite, when we get verses they fit & and truly help build the songs. This album does justice the mashing of different elements outside the verses themselves to provide a cinematic feel that carries a wide range & packs a punch for the listener.

The remainder of the album finishes out just as strong as it’s beginning & middle, I don’t want to spoil the story so you’ll have to listen for yourself to find out if Player 1 ever found his way & got home.  One thing is ensured if you do decide to play the game, it’s one you might just have to play over & over after the first playthrough in this excellent offering from Titan Records Mark Cooper.

Depending what time of year it is, unfortunately things fall thru the cracks when the staff here is getting things in order for the Underground Hip Hop Awards. This project is definitely one of those. Filthy is a Grammy Nominated, Gold, Platinum, and Double Platinum producer, songwriter, arranger, composer, music executive, A&R, and entrepreneur based in Detroit Michigan. Having worked with the great of old and new Filthy has a wide history of music to pull from.  Stepping from behind the scenes he creates a musical sign of the times with “Filthy America”

There is only one vocal performance on this project via the song Behold a Pale Horse which Underground Hip Hop Awards nominee for best artist delivers a lyrical onsluaght from start to finish, no breaks needed.

With that said this project is mostly a instrumental album with sound bites scattered thru out  album. Starting off with the Inauguration its fitting to hear the voice of the late Coleman Young making his vision clear for the city of Detroit. We the people which is the song featured in the visual in this post feels like a soulful time warp. Sit back and enjoy the ride. We will leave it to you to discover the rest.

Every soundbite, every vocal snippet was strategically chosen and meticulously placed on the track(s) in a way to craft a narrative, maximize effect and evoke thought/emotional provocation.

You wont be disappointed
