iTunes Editors’ Notes

An underground vet who debuted with the ABB 12-inch "Bionic" back in 1995, Defari is a close affiliate of Dilated Peoples, Planet Asia, and Tha Alkaholiks, and also one-half of Likwit Junkies with DJ Babu. Staunchly representing Los Angeles, his style is neither hardcore gangster nor backpack nerd: just straight-ahead hip-hop with an emphasis on big beats, basic rhymes, and plenty of Golden State boom-bap. Like the previous albums Odds & Evens and Focused Daily, Street Music has collaborations with longtime co-conspirators The Alchemist, Evidence, J Ro, and Babu, with verses focusing mostly on lyrical superiority, the state of the game, California love, and a hearty appetite for drink and smoke. While not extraordinary groundbreaking, it's still a typically enjoyable listen, with standout tracks like "Deepest Regrets" (featuring B-Real), "Vultures," "Big Burn," and "West West."

Customer Reviews

A Classic!

Just want to congratulate Defari, and let everyone know how tight this album really is! Street Music proves that Defari is one of the best MC's, not only on the West Coast but period. Bottom line, this album brings the sickest production and lyrical content since the Dilated 20/20 album and Visionaires Pangaea. Big Ups to the Defari and the whole Liquid Crew for representing the West Coast Underground like it should be. Quite simply bringing the best HipHop this country has to offer. Don't sleep, buy this whole album because every track is hot! Let me repeat that....every track. Defari has taken us into his mind, life, and soul from Focused Daily through LJ's to Street Music. A true MC, dedicated to the hard worker. Cop this! Peace.
