The Anti-album

The Anti-album by Semi.Official
Released: Jan 2006
Label: Rhymesayers
I Self Devine of the MICRANOTS and DJ Abilities of Eyedea & Abilities spent years toiling in the underground with their respective groups, but it was this 2003 one-off collaboration that featured their best work. I Self Devine departed from his typical pan-African treatises to impersonate a thug living hardcore, pushing dope on "Styfle Progression," writing a "Police Assassination Anthem" and imagining his death on "Transitions." DJ Abilities digs into crates full of '70s funk and jazz fusion samples to make a melancholy soul backdrop for I Self's morality tale.
