    Product Details

    Summary

    Hailing from Cambridge, Mass., but a musical nomad of sorts, K-The-I?? has traversed the USA pushing sonic boundaries with his unique brand of densed-out boom-bap. Armed with a commanding voice and a gritty production aesthetic that recalls Bomb Squad-era Public Enemy and signature Def Jux recordings, he crafts tracks that swell and pulse with an immersive gravity. Making an appearance on Bigg Jus and Orko Eloheem's recent NMS album, Imperial Letters of Protection, K-The-I??? has earned the respect of many of indie hip-hop's elite. Whether writing epic love letters or harnessing bugged-out electric currents, K-The-I???'s music has a personality and urgency that demands your attention.

    K-The-I??? marks a thunderous return to Mush with his latest full-length, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow. Production on the album is handled entirely by Thavius Beck, his first project since he finished work on Saul Willaims' Niggy Tardust alongside Trent Reznor. Where his debut, Broken Love Letter, focused on past loves gone wrong, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow is a collection of songs about the MC's cross country relocation, and trying to come to terms with how his life has changed from that. The result is a work of singular focus that catches K-The-I??? at his strongest, dropping ingenious lyrics over Blade Runner beats. The album features a stellar line-up of guest MCs as High Priest of a newly reunited Antipop Consortium, Busdriver, Subtitle, Scribble Jam winner Nocando, Vyle, and Mestizo all drop in. Thavius Beck even leaves the producer's desk and steps in front of the mic for a track. For fans looking for an album that ties hip-hop's past, present and future, K-The-I???'s Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow delivers.

    Comment: Yesterday, Today & Tommorrow is by far my favorite album of the year. K-the-i??? is an amazing emcee fully equipped with a dope voice, fascinating lyrics and an overabundance of creativity; teamed with an arsenal of stimulating intergalactic beats that bang from Thavius Beck (of Lab Waste), the man is unstoppable, transcending all dimensions of space and time through his nueron-bending bars of pure heat. While definitely out-there, this album is K-the-i???s most accessible and best thus far, 14 tracks all thoroughly slammin' with no filler; it's all heatrocks here, though 'Decisions', 'Lead The Floor', 'Just Listen', and 'Man or Machine feat. Mestizo' are some of the illest joints I've heard in some time. Fans of Bigg Jus, Orko, Company Flow, Cannibal Ox, Galapagos4, Anticon, Def Jux, Ninja Tune, Lab Waste, Anti-Pop Consortium, Flying Lotus and the like will definitely feel this album, however anyone open to artful/ avant garde/ post-modern/ ahead-of-it's-time hip hop should assuredly check out this joint. K-the-i?? & Thavius Beck are true innovators, raising the bar for hip hoppers and musicians of all sorts, as proven with Yesterday, Today & Tommorrow: one listen may alter your molecular structure forever.
