Chief Kamachi Concrete Gospel
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Babygrande
In Chief Kamachi's world, there aren't a whole lot of good times going down. On his sophomore solo shot, this fiery-voiced Philly native unleashes an onslaught of solemn ghetto scriptures atop the darkly tinged yet bumping production of DJ Huggy and E. Dan. As overcast as tracks like "Death Choir" can appear, Kamachi does a masterful job of capturing the ongoing struggles that the black community faces in the inner city. But beyond merely reporting on his surroundings, Kamachi lets it be known (on "Little African Boy") that he's "in search of a cure for the poison coming off the streets."
