Nature Sounds Presents The Prof. In...con-vexed
by The Prof.
Released: Oct 2004
Label: Nature Sounds
A nice snapshot of where N.Y.C. indie hip-hop was in the year 2004. Emcees I Self Divine and Sean Price rely on the bloody street narratives that defined underground hip-hop in the late-'90s, while MF Doom and Aesop Rock are more linguistically adventurous and thematically abstract. The production, comprised of tight jazz loops and minor-key chords, is stellar.
