Tame One When Rappers Attack
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Eastern Conference
Coming back from the wrong side of the tracks is the Artifacts' Tame One, giving indie hip-hop a much-needed dose of back-to-basics rhyming. Considering how long it has been since he's had product out, Tame has very quickly knocked the dust off his flow, updating it with a few more multisyllabic rhymes. His delivery shows that he hasn't missed a step during his hiatus, as he confidently kicks clever metaphors like I register game like "Jon Schecter." Unfortunately, the production isn't up to Tame's level-the tracks range from plodding and boring to mediocre. It's a shame Tame couldn't be backed with better beats to make this a complete package, but as a rhyming exposition, When Rappers Attack succeeds admirably.
