    Product Details


    Just when you thought you were safe, Ill Adrenaline Records strikes again! Beneficence, Brick City veteran and longtime Artifacts affiliate, returns with a banging album coming off the success of his critically acclaimed "Sidewalk Science" (2011) album. After 17 years in the game and numerous collaborations with top-notch producers and emcees, Beneficence drops his 5th solo album entitled "Concrete Soul". Sticking to the true formula of golden era antics, Beneficence brings a stellar line up of guest appearances including lyrical heavyweights like Billy Danze (of M.O.P.), Masta Ace, Roc Marciano, A.G. (of D.I.T.C.), Grap Luva, Lord Tariq, Rampage The Last Boy Scout, El Da Sensei and many more. Your eardrums can enjoy witnessing soulful and hard-hitting boom bap beats courtesy of Buckwild (of D.I.T.C.), K-Def, Confidence (of Rashad & Confidence), Da Beatminerz, Gensu Dean, 12 Finger Dan, Presto, Molemen and a bunch of other excellent beatsmiths. "Concrete Soul" displays slick, thought provoking rhyme styles from smooth laid back joints such as the K-Def produced "Cold Train" (feat. Grap Luva & Rob-O) to rough and rugged Billy Danze featured "Art of War". The album brings a soul street element that's been missing from nowadays rap music, along with plenty of dope cuts, samples, and pure satisfaction for true school hip-hop heads worldwide who are still in love with that raw and authentic 90's sound. Let's carry the tradition!

    Comment: I've been dying to get this since I heard the snippets & been bumping it non-stop since I got it. I agree w/ M-1. Beneficence keeps getting better. I love that a whole bunch of different (great!) producers provided beats for this project. It gives the album a holistic feel and Beneficence sounds good on all of them!

    Comment: I'm hearing a few good raps and beats though not always on the same tracks. The dj cuts aren't very good, they should of left that for live shows. Hearing some promise here but I'll be passing on this, waiting for the next album.

    Comment: i was kinda let down wit this joint benefice is dope! but side walk science was a better joint clearly !i think he should have not put so many features on here and alot of these producers did not fit him! long albums get boring aswell! really disappointed in the joint he did wit roc marcaino! that was what I was really looking foward to hear ! buckwild could have came harder !
