The Grouch & Eligh Say G&E!
- Words: Zoneil Maharaj
- Label: Legendary Music
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Left-coast luminaries The Grouch and Eligh have made a tradition of sharing wisdom and morality over mesmerizing production, so Say G&E!, the Living Legends’ members third shot as a tag team, is a business-as-usual affair. It's loaded with substantive wordplay and laidback beats, with just enough nod factor to make necks cramp. MC Eligh also produces a majority of the album, crafting lush, somber soundscapes (“Say G&E!,” “Do It Again”) and upbeat jams (“All In,” “Worried About the World”). Also notable is the A-list lineup of collaborators, which includes Slug waxing nostalgic over Amp Live’s bouncy “!BOOM!,” and Blu kicking knowledge beyond his years on the Flying Lotus-produced “Old Souls.”
