Product Details

Summary

Nearly 20 years after his classic debut album Fear Itself, Hieroglyphics emcee Casual is a certified Bay Area hip-hop legend. Now, he's joining forces with veteran beatsmith J Rawls (producer for Black Star, J-Live, Stalley, Count Bass D, John Robinson, and more) for a brand new album, Respect Game Or Expect Flames. The project will be released physically and digitally on August 28th via Nature Sounds.

Both Rawls and Casual agree that the album came about organically. "He had a lot of beats that moved my pen," explains Casual. "We worked on a couple tracks together and decided that our chemistry warranted an album's worth of material." On the production, J Rawls wasn't afraid to test his limits. "I changed my style a lot for this album," he says. "I'm known for having a jazzy sound, but some of these tracks are more edgy. It fits Casual's style and attitude." The result is an album that stands out in Casual's already impressive catalog. "This project is different because of the production. J gave me a more universal sound than I've had on any of my past albums," says Casual. "I think it's my best work to date," adds Rawls.

Comment: As amazing as this album is I can't give it less than five stars even though I didn't like about six tracks. Casual is still one of the best and this album is further proof. Fans of the old Hiero albums should feel right at home here with this joint. Not feeling that Egyptian stuff anymore. The album art could of been much better.

Comment: Steve must not have heard Montezuma's Revenge, Vulture's Wisdom Vol. 1 & 2, Rigmarole, The Hierophant, Background Check, and Attractive Sin. Hiero is still dope. Just realize it's not the 90's anymore...modern beats sound different yo. But if you want the old grimey production you can always listen to the old albums. This Casual + J. Rawls is real nice, specifically the 2nd half of the album.

Comment: All in all I was hoping for a lot more. Not so much from J. Rawls just not feeling Casual on this one that much. Overall two stars.

Comment: There is alot of innovation here....not your standard bars. The album has acceptable consistancy. I'm really not into the message however. Everything considered I give this 3.5 stars.

Comment: the cover art alone on this is a bold twisted going hard LIE. really sad. u cant tell me a plate of spaghetti is a lamborghini....it's not. you can't disrespect the make of lifes existence and perpetuation and get off. it is suicide. Hiero use to be real to me. then they ran away from everything that made them great. so I'm supposed to respect you for shitting on what makes LIFE survive and work? Makes no sense....what happened to Hiero saying it's not a game? what happened to hiero saying fuck u stupid fucking gangsters...THIS IS HIP HOP....THIS IS ART.....wut happened? just beyond weak....and I been blocked for over ten years cause I preserve life like a real MAN while these weak faggots try to flip the God and ruin everything cause their bitch asses are....bitch asses. respect life or expect your games to burn in hell.....it is not a game. earth to idiots.....it is not a game. earth to idiots.....it is not a game. earth to idiots....it is not a game. earth to idiots....it is not a game. earth to idiots....it is not a game. aye casual thanks for rear ending that prius like a pussy so it would crack into my F-150....I know who that spirit is..... turn around. You have been warned.... why the fuck would I waste my energy on my stages? clean it up...NOW. when it is prepped properly I will show up....if it is never done properly I will never show up and just do wut I'm doing....u won't do shit to me. buy me a ghost busters t shirt faggot.

Comment: eh...the idea of casual + j. rawls was exciting at first, but as usual, the r&b hooks and shit are already pissing me off. j.rawls' classic sound is what I was hoping for, but it sounds like he's being more experimental and trying to find a new direction on this one. i'm not looking for LCP-sounding shit, because it's a little too "kenny g" for me, but I was hoping for rawls to find a new astrud gilberto sample and freak it that way or something. i dunno, but that idiot a few posts down talking about casual not being to hold up on his own in a solo project...man, fear itself is all I have to fucking say. granted, everything else he's put out has been weak, but that's a classic album you must've just slept on or something.
