Planet Asia The Medicine
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: ABB
Given Planet Asia's and Evidence's past chemistry ("Place of Birth"), their new collaborative effort The Medicine looked to be a sure shot. Though it didn't turn out to be a magnum opus for either artist, it's not a bad effort either. While Evidence's grimy, slow, rolling beats are a little too close to The Alchemist's gangsta backdrops, they do suit Asia, the self-dubbed "hardest independent artist," nicely. What‘s most impressive about this album is that Asia actually does seem to be closing in on fulfilling his goal of making underground music that can bump in the club.
