Mike Ladd Father Divine
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: ROIR
Time will tell if he's one of the last poets or one of the first Afro-slackers (Arthur Lee meets Beck?), but Mike Ladd's Father Divine may give new meaning to the phrase "cult of personality." A concept album of sorts, the record revolves around a controversial preacher of the same name, but ends up being an MC's indictment of all the false profits of Babylon, both religious and consumerist. That's not to say there's no fun on this record–you can tell the live musicians had a blast playing for Mike and his guests from the Anti-Pop Consortium.
