If you long for the days when hip-hop still had a wry sense of humor, provided a tongue-in-cheek critique of America, and spouted zingy, "did he really just say that?"-type rhymes, then Superiority Complex is your new favorite group. SC MCs Poisoned Fetus and Iron Monk and producer Blackology might start a new True School era with this flawless album, which even flips A Tribe Called Quest's classic "Butter," music and all. Blackology's beats mix taut, Large Prof-style drums with Jazzy Jeff's melodic sample-ology. The Orlando trio flexes lovely on the Vince Guaraldi-looping "Seasons" and the soul-drenched "Love."
