A street-savvy lyricist from the Bronx, Oktober has been on the grind for the past four years, releasing several excellent 12-inches and a pair of small-run CDs. On his official debut full-length, he hits us with 16 solid tracks that showcase his verbal gifts over gritty, sample-fueled production. "NYC," the lead single, is a dope hometown anthem, "Four Korners" channels Nasty-era Nas and J-Live pops up for the video game dedication "Reset The Game." One of the year's best albums; look for this cat to be large very soon.
