Kero One Check The Blueprints/The Cycle Repeats
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Plug Label
Keep it real. Easy to say, hard to do. Kero One, however, does it to death on this record. Not only does he rhyme and make his own beats, but he does the cuts on "Blueprints" (DJ Seoul Control cuts elsewhere). And he's a graf head, as he attests on "The Cycle." The beats are straight outta '93-jazzy and organic, lots of boom-bap and not the least bit contrived-and Kero's easy delivery fits the mold perfectly. And that's real.
