Circle Research Speak & Read
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Cartridge Family Records
Toronto DJ/producers Nix, Astro and Chris B check in with three chunky bits. "Speak and Read" runs a tight rhythm under Smooth B-ish rhymes by local Abdominal dueling a Speak 'n' Spell toy. Meanwhile, Psy swallows two million words to little effect on "Psy'd Tracked," but comes through nicer on the T-town posse cut "Fade," featuring eight MCs, including Yushin killin' it in Japanese. Rhyme styles: B+. Beats: A+.
