    Product Details


    Ill Adrenaline Records is back with another classic release!

    Purpose, founding member of the group Tragic Allies, teams up with extraordinary producer Confidence of Rashad & Confidence fame to bring you their debut album "The Purpose of Confidence".

    While these two artists come from different backgrounds, the sounds they put together can only capture the essence of pure hip-hop. The mixture of music takes you in different directions from story-telling, real world situations and lyrical onslaught. Purpose's flow, delivery and lyrics will have you engaged from start to finish while Confidence delivers on the boards as usual. This time, he switches it up to help compliment Purpose's subject matter but still providing his soulful and hard hitting trademark boom-bap sound along with more gritty beats as well.

    Listeners will be in for a nice surprise as these two artists help shape the landscape of hip-hop and keep that raw and authentic music pumping through your veins.

    Comment: Album is hot... Tragic Allies are always releasing sick material. This solo joint all produced by Confidence is a banger from beginning to end... peep it! The Rashad and Confidence album was weak in my opinion - emcee wasnt much and beats were tame. Here though, due to Purpose being a very accomplished producer himself (check the T.A. albums, his mixtape solo 'Better Than Your Album' and the album he produced for Paranom), Confidence REALLY upped his game and all the beats are top notch, perfectly matching Purp's nice flow. Tragic Allies can do no wrong and I eagerly await the next group album after the 7 GEMS classic and hope for a debut solo from Estee Nack and Code Nine.

    Comment: I gave this album a 4, because although I like it, and there are admittedly a few duds, I was really, REALLY looking forward to a sequel to Element of Surprise with Rashad, who BTW, is lightyears ahead of Purpose on the mic and on the pad. That record was just so good, and now we're already hearing about a sequel with Purpose... WTF Confidence? I really hope you and Rashad don't have any beef or something, because we NEED an album with you guys where he just drops more straight-up bars than stories. I want to see another side of Rashad, over YOUR beats!

    Comment: I give this a 4.5 Purpose is on point but is outshined by Confidence on this one. The beats are just off the fuckin meat rack hot. Purpose comes nice tho and covers different subject matter to make the replay value top notch.

    Comment: I didn't really feel the Rashad collabo lp for some reason. This however is pretty banging, lots of back to back gems - only one or two filler tracks. Definitely in top 10 of year could be pushing top 5.

    Comment: Good album but definitely not as good as The Element of Surprise, which was an end-to-end burner. 90% of the props for this LP go to Confidence. He is sick with the beats! But, the brother well, he's fair. But, glad to see Confidence getting some well-deserved shine with some other artists. Now, I'm just waiting for the next Rashad and Confidence LP.

    Comment: A true classic LP. Confidence appears to be able to do no wrong as every song on here and the LP with Rashad are pure musical perfection. This is exactly what Hip Hop is supposed to sound like, at least in my world. It has the essence of the 90's Golden Era yet still sounds fresh and brand new. BUY THIS LP now and support artists making quality and creative music!

    Comment: This is amazing! I loved "The Element of Surprise" last year, and this album is definitely a very hot contender for one of the best of 2012. Confidence's beats are crazy, but Purpose's rhymes & flow still hold their own and only complement them even more. I don't know how someone could possibly hear this and not be mind-blown.

    Comment: What a waste! Confidence brought the sweet, classic beats and Purpose shit the bed.. The difference between this and the "Element of Surprise" is that Rashad has SUBSTANCE!! The difference makes for a mediocre album versus an all time classic! Hope all your bars about money, women, and guns helped your street image Purpose because it all sounds like blah, blah, blah to me.. 5 stars for Confidence, 2 for Purpose! What a fucking waste, could have been something special..
