Album Review

Grown out of the legendary Unity Committee, Darkleaf has deep roots in the L.A. underground. The Unity Committee eventually split in two, one faction going on to form the Jurassic 5 while the others mined considerably different territory, creating the diverse, dystopian sound that characterizes F—- the People. As the title implies, this is a dark, often angry album. All five members take a turn at the mike, lending a wide range of perspectives — from the philosophical to the paranoid — to seething songs like "Sounds of Armageddon" and "Commercial." While the lyrics are intense, the music behind them is even more challenging. Producers Jahli and Longevity, along with sterling DJ Mixmaster Wolf, combine to give F—- the People its dense, surprisingly intricate sound. Scratches, spoken words, skewered breakbeats, snatches of horns, and disjointed guitar riffs are all in the mix here, blended together and set into a deep and murky low end. Anchored in the clutter of thick bass and hypnotic beats, the complicated soundscapes of F—- the People reveal themselves slowly, becoming more and more engaging with each listen.

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s

Darkleaf emerged from the Los Angeles underground in the early '90s, after the legendary Unity Committee split in two. One faction became Jurassic 5; the other, Darkleaf. From the beginning, MCs Kemit and Metalogik, producers and MCs Longjevity and Jahli, and DJ Mixmaster Wolf wanted to be the darkest bees in the hive. Refusing to submit to the too-easy clichés and vapidity of mainstream hip-hop, Darkleaf developed a style that referenced Sun Ra, Chick Corea, and Jimi Hendrix, among others. Home...
