Sol Power Sol Uprising
- Words: June Joseph
- Label: Shaman Work
Sol Power obviously ODed on copious amounts of The Coup, The Fugees and Digable Planets before they recorded Sol Uprising-their sound is derivative of the aforementioned crews without the same level of sophistication. That said, their organic, uplifting sound is a much-needed breath of fresh air considering the sorry state of hip-hop. Sol Uprising gets off to sluggish start, but the duo hits their stride with "Now Is The Time." The mad-fresh "They Don't Know" hints that by their sophomore effort, Sol Power could make serious impact. Until then, this is a welcome, though imperfect, antidote to bling-bling gangsta boogie.
