Hezekiah Hurry Up & Wait
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Soul Spazm
The man behind the Beat Society producer roundtables, Philly rapper/producer Hezekiah makes music somewhat akin to Jay Dee‘s downtempo, neo-soul-ish hip-hop, and his debut album sounds somewhat like J Dilla‘s solo record Welcome 2 Detroit-without the random forays into things like samba and Kraftwerkian electro. While multi-layered productions like the Pete Rock-ish "Gypsy Slang" sound good enough to stand alone as instrumentals, I can‘t help but longing for more guest spots from folks like Grand Agent, Chief Kamachi, Bahamadia, and Stiffed‘s Santi White in place of Hezekiah‘s Will.I.Am-like rhymes.
