By now, fans of hip-hop are familiar with Stones Throw's Chrome Children series, and Volume 2 delivers more of the same eclectic hip-hop, soul, and funky electro beats found on the first. Here, Koushik and Percee P slink and croon their way through the saucy, energetic "Reverse Part 2."
Amir Sulaiman is on a mission to revive posi-hip-hop one track at a time. This activist, writer and MC is at his most uplifting on "Change Gonna Come," a politically conscious opus that'll have backpackers and nu-soul devotees equally energetic.
