Collective Efforts Medicine
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: ATF
Atlanta hip-hop has never been short on variety, and its latest offspring, Collective Efforts, only adds another shade to the city's expansive palette of sounds. With their R&B-styled hooks, harmonious flows, and smooth beats, these MCs could easily pass for crooners. But it's not love ballads that they're laying down; with their "medicinal" music, they're out to heal the souls of listeners living in troubled times. The CE crew isn't likely to appeal to every hip-hop head, but their soothing new album further proves that you never quite know what will come out of ATL next.
