G&D The Message Uni Versa
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Look
The queen of experimental soul (Georgia Anne Muldrow) and the king of stoner soul (Dudley Perkins) are practically conjoined twins. And with this 20-track acid trip, they’ve decided to publicly consummate their funkdafied union (away from their erstwhile label Stones Throw, oddly enough). Surprisingly, most of the cuts here (produced largely by Muldrow) don’t come off as esoteric as their makers’ personas might suggest. Shining moments come on tracks like “Poppa’s Song” and “Stronger,” where Muldrow croons solo, sans the Ol’ Dirty Bastard-esque ramblings of Perkins. Pushing boundaries while subverting preconceived notions of black music may be a difficult task for some, but G&D appear to be up for the challenge.
