Product Details


History Will Absolve Me is the latest full-length from billy woods and the Zimbabwean-Jamaicanby-way-of-Brooklyn rapper delivers a fragmentation grenade of an album. An explosive riot of bitter invective, evocative lyricism and daisycutter beats, History Will Absolve Me is a solid hour of hardboiled anti-nostalgia. The album features guest appearances by established stars like Roc Marciano, Vordul Mega (Cannibal Ox), MarQ Spekt, and Masai Bey, but also features up-and-coming talents Elucid and junclassic. Willie Green, A.M. Breakups, Marmaduke, Nasa (Def Jux/Uncommon Music) and Man Mantis handle the beats and provide a backdrop that matches the intensity of woods' labyrinthine verses. Following on the heels of last years Cowardly Threats & Hideous Cruelty mixtape, HWAM is woods' third official solo album, but with eight years between them, this is less a follow-up to his debut than it is a bare knuckle epilogue. The limited edition CD's feature a "director's cut" of the album with two additional tracks (one featuring Vordul Mega of Cannibal Ox) as well as a 20 page lyric booklet! Only 250 copies of the album are being pressed, so expect this collector's item to move fast.

Comment: Best hip hop album I've heard in A LONG TIME, Woods maxes everything out with his original flow and DEEP lyrics. This is what hip hop is all about, and it's gonna make you work. I've been listening to it for a year and am still finding new meanings on every listen. Perfect album, maybe the best since Black Star IMO.

Comment: The thing about this album and Billy Woods himself, is there's alot of meaning to what he says. You just have to connect the dots on your own. "Crocodile Tears", "Bill Cosby", "The Wake", "DMCA" and "Cash For Gold" are my joints....

Comment: another backwoodz masterpiece... i'm gonna go ahead and declare its william woods' best solo album... his most polished full length, HWAS is overabundantly stacked with tha god's completely unique steez - stinging political commentary, an incredibly dark sarcastic sense of humor, lyrics so ridiculously ill you will actually want to read the full lyric sheet front to back... there is no one really comparable to billy woods. as with all great music, you haven't even really, truly, heard this joint till you've rocked it all the way through at least ten times... plus this banger is flying out of our warehouse like reptilians fleeing from infinite consciousness, and they only made 250 so you better cop dat rightquick...
