When I first heard the new Strong Arm Steady joint, I was almost convinced that, much like Tame One, Phil the Agony had smoked himself to the brink of retardation. If it wasn’t for the fantastic Madlib production, I may have given up on the album and filed it into my collection to be never touched again.
Because I resent having to pay for albums that blow, I gave the LP a few more chances to see if there was any warming-up to be had. Turns out, I actually adapted to Phil’s often-unbalanced rhyme delivery and I now plan to rep this album as one of the best of 2010 (which has already started to be pieced together) at the end of the year.
Get nice to that. And vibe out with the help of some fine green ingredients.
(Props to anyone who knows what song the title to this post came from.)
