Capital D Return of the Renegade
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: All Natural
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
In this young man's rap game, the odds are stacked against Capital D: he's over 30, a lawyer, and married. But on his third album, this Chicago veteran proves that nothing can keep him from remaining relevant. Atop blazing uptempo beats, Cap effortlessly kicks "street sense with degrees to boot" ("Street Knowledge") and makes "the downtrodden wanna get down" ("Ups & Down"). When not dropping uplifting gems, he flexes his superior storytelling skills on the funk-filled "Game the Mic," a vivid portrait of a bustling day in Cap's native Hyde Park 'hood. It's hip-hop that nearly anyone can enjoy.
