Asamov And Now...
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: 6 Hole
Jacksonville‘s Asamov is the first act from outside the North Carolina-based Justus League camp on baseball pro Desi Relaford‘s 6Hole Records-not surprisingly, "Florida‘s Little Brother" fits right in. Sure, the tunes turned out by up-and-coming beatsmith Willie Evans, Jr. (The Perceptionists, Rasco), MCs J-Wonda and Basic, and DJ/producer Therapy tap into a familiar vibe with their Motown samples and recycling of classic hip-hop lines, but in some ways their debut LP one-ups LB‘s The Minstrel Show. For one thing, album highlight "Supa Dynamite" (featuring Mr. Lif) is more of an anthem than anything on that good-not-great album. But, like most of today‘s underground hip-hop, And Now... doesn‘t think enough outside of the box.
