iTunes Review

A two-man group from North Carolina, Actual Proof (Enigma and Sundown) goes the concept route with its first album, relaying the story of a young boy growing up alongside the radio in Raleigh. Signed to Jamla Records, Actual Proof is assisted by an assortment of smooth and soulful beats from the likes of 9th Wonder, Khrysis, AMP, Hi-Tek, Dre Brown, and Eric G, among others. Lyrically, the duo has a relatable, everyman style akin to Little Brother or De La Soul, with solid storytelling, slick verbals, and no gangster fronting whatsoever. Extremely listenable and undeniably funky, Black Boy Radio also benefits from quality features, including Raheem DeVaughn ("All the Way"), Rapsody ("Headlights"), Bird & The Midnight Falcons ("A Letter to Coretta"), and Geechi Suede from Camp Lo ("Poison Ivy Gloss"). It's a strong debut that'll definitely resonate with indie-rap heads around the globe. Other highlights include the ear-tickling "Why You Wanna Pass Me By" and the jazz-drenched, horn-fueled title track.

Nothing but the BEST...

I haven't hear a album like this in a long time. Not since the Nas, Biggy, Redman, Method Man, EPMD ect have I heard something this good. There isnt a bad song on the whole album. This is what the true from of Hip-Hop should be. If I recall my Hip-Hop 101 class correctly, Hip-Hop started out just like this. This is true Hip-Hop, and just great music all rolled into one!!! This is a must have in your iPod!!! Already a classic album!!!

Album of the year

From start to finish, Black Boy Radio flows oh so nicely. This album was put together with thought and a purpose and the fellas delivered with a 5 star product. This is real hip hop. This is NC! This is JAMLA!! Buy the album and help make this a top download on iTunes!!

A few things...

First.... THE PRODUCTION:

This is the first project where I can really say that 9th Wonder didn't put forth a true effort. His production is the weakest of all of the producers. Normally 9th is on target so I'm really surprised at this. The best production came from AMP and Khrysis (We Gon' Continya and The Feel)

Next... THE ARTIST:

Lyrically this cat is above average. But his voice seems to throw the project off. It's either too light or too fine for the production. Either way his tone definitely brings down the project.

Finally.... THE OVERALL:

The project is decent. Hip-Hop through and through. More emphasis needs to be put on artist selection. But definitely better than what's on the radio. -----C plus
