Visionaries Pangaea

Rap crew the Visionaries-which consists of LMNO, Key Kool, 2Mex, Zen, Dannu and DJ Rhettmatic-remind me a lot of early incarnations of the Black Eyed Peas and Jurassic 5. They're from LA, they're multiracial, and they lay down uplifting, at times didactic lyrics over swingy, quite classic-sounding hip-hop beats-here provided by guest producers like Beat Junkie J-Rocc to Dilated Peoples' Evidence and Shape Shifters' Life Rexall. Suffice to say, if you like your breaks funk-derived and your rhymes conscious, you'll probably be feeling this. I, for one, am gonna go pop on that 50 Cent.
