    Product Details


    Troy 'Co$$' Johnson has been bubbling on the LA scene with his tales of love lost and gained and hard street rhymes all told with heartfelt integrity. Hailing from Leimert Park, Co$$ is an artist who uses vivid imagery and sharp rhymes in his delivery to paint a clear picture of his content. Named as LA's most underrated rapper in the LA times, Co$$ is beating off his competition.

    Co$$ has featured on many releases, most notably on Exile's debut album 'Dirty' science, Fashawn's 'Boy Meets World' and on the self titled Johnson & Johnson (Blu & Mainframe) release. His debut 12 inch with Fonetik Simbol came out on Tres in 2009 and was well received world wide.

    Co$$ will no doubt make some huge waves with a debut album bursting with creativity, unique flow and original, introspective content. The production is remarkably varied, with synth laden melodies merged with dusty loops throughout in a melting pot that includes beats from Exile. The perfect balance has been made with songs that make you screw your face up (see 'Da Meanest' Prod. by Exile), and thought provoking, captivating sound scapes (see 'Scriptures' prod. by The Soul Academy). With a beautifully polished intro, 'Risen' brings forth that 'shiver down your spine' music. In typical Tres fashion, 'Spaceman' delivers a laid back west coast sound laced with fly pianos and a hook reminiscent of the classic Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg bounce. Tracks such as 'In The Wind' give the listener that instant head nod essence. Co$$'s label mate Shawn Jackson adds one of two features to the song with his usual experience and prowess.

    Comment: I really enjoyed "Before I Awoke", not just lyrically but the production was also a high point for me. "Spaceman", "No Allah" & "Pot Ash" are my favorites. "Khakis & Taylors" not so much but overall this album is bangin'. Worth the hard earned loot!

    Comment: Wow another refreshing surprise from the golden coast. I must say that I was never a fan of coss from his previous guest spots but this album came together quite nicely. With the exception of one track (khakis n taylors) this album hits all the right spots. I dont know what it is about the khakis track but it hard for me to listen too (was released as a single too!) Anyways the rest of the album is just so fresh, clocking in at 72 or so minutes you get alot of bang for your buck, very hard to accomplish for a jam packed album. Another note I must mention is about the lovely bonus tres records mixtape that was included. it is a fully pressed up jewel case item, looking as professional (perhaps more so) as any other album on the shelves. A great little gift to go along with a great album that this happens to be (4 1/2 stars) Dont sleep and enjoy!
