Swamburger The Roots of Kin
- Words: Jesse Terry
- Label: Eight Dimension
From the beat quality all the way up to the lyrics and delivery, this is a top-notch album. You could tell Swamburger was up for good things after his guest spot with BMF and Beef Wellington of Orlando's Eighth Dimension crew. The Roots of Kin seals the deal. Conscious rhymes and a quick delivery bring to mind groups like Binary Star, Zion-I, Digable Planets and early De La Soul, while Swam occasionally picks up the speed to rolling Outkast flavor. Funky guitars dominate the beats, which hint at an experimental electronic style. When's the last time a hip-hop album turned that frown upside-down?
