AWOL One & Daddy Kev


(Alpha Pup Records)

Release date: Jan 30, 2001

A lot of people from our camp, and a lot of people everywhere for that matter, may not have been turned on to the underground hip hop movement of this decade had it not been for this record. This re-release is long overdue and few would argue is an instant classic and the best AWOL One recordings to date, under the masterful beat-making and production of Daddy Kev. If you're looking for a simple and unique piece of hip-hop that doesn't sacrifice quality of content, check it out. Or, maybe it would be better to say that you should listen to it if you relate to any of these sentiments: "I don't want the television to make up my mind / and I don't want you / to tell me what to do / and I don't want kids getting pregnant at fifteen / and I don't want you to keep stealing my shit...I don't want a radio without fresh batteries / and all the other radios they try to battle me / but I throw on my boomers, and then I'm fine / no other radio gets louder than mine!" Word.
