With his latest album Respect the Architect, critically acclaimed mc/ producer Blueprint has taken his years of experience making underground hip hop music and channeled it into a cherished vessel of classic 90's rap records – the soul sample chop. After notable releases from his collaborative project Soul Position with DJ/Producer RJD2 and his 2011 genre-defying solo record Adventures in Counter-Culture (Rhymesayers Entertainment), Respect the Architect embraces a stripped-down sound built around sparsely-produced sample-driven production. Print drops his patented no-frills rhymes with bravado and style, saluting the pioneers of the past while showcasing why he himself has truly become an architect of independent hip hop.

Comment: 5 stars 4 Da 5 star General. Genius with ingenuity. Beats and rhymes that pay homage to a day when MCeeing and DJing stood for something. Met Blueprint selling merch at the WLGYLYPTSG tour w/ Atmosphere and Abstract Rude. Smiling, laughing like homies. Dude is extra cool. Memorable.

Comment: Solid 4 stars. aside from some minor f*ckery/ way too artsy stuff, this album is a success. Very tight flow, positive message, old school feel.

Comment: Had to comment again so I could rate it this time. Just 10 tracks but all dope & no filler. So it's a 4 star album in my opinion.
