Various Artists Rasco Presents The Minority Report
- Words: Rachel Swan
- Label: Pocketslinted
Enjoyable throughout, if not ambitious, Rasco's The Minority Report features artists whose crisp beats and funky turns-of-phrase ensure their status in the top one percent of underground rappers. It's a compilation with a tangible sense of rootedness, especially on "Just Like That," in which Mikal regales Bay Area heads with shout-outs to regional stars Mystic Journeymen, Kevvy Kev and Hobo Junction. Otherwise, the best tracks are "Hustla" by Prophet, who will seduce you with his looped piano, "Respect My Team" by Planet Asia, who will seduce you with his triumphant delivery, and "It's a Wrap" by Jean Grae, who will just seduce you, period.
