The Perceptionists Black Dialogue
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Definitive Jux
Certified as one of the most energetic, incessantly political live hip-hop trios around, The Perceptionists (comprised of the thickly-dreaded Mr. Lif, Akrobatic, and DJ Fakts One) release a debut worthy of the hype their shows command. Social theory and musical aesthetic find kindred partnership on Black Dialogue. Translation: their preaching doesn‘t compromise sonic integrity; in fact, Lif and Akrobatic‘s hard, bouncing rhymes are equaled only by massively structured beats. "Blo" and "Memorial Day," two live killers, translate gorgeously, and when Guru steps aboard on the title track, the torch is passed to this new generation of thought-provoking rhyme slayers.
