Editors’ Notes

One of hip-hop's most prolific, charismatic, and longest-lasting crews, Oakland's Hieroglyphics collective (Del the Funky Homosapien, Souls of Mischief, Casual, Pep Love, DJ Toure, and Domino) has been cranking out next-level rhymes and sample-propelled production for more than 20 years now. While Hieroglyphics' crossover visibility has risen and fallen over time, they've never stopped making dope music, continuing to perform around the globe and inspire legions of devout followers. Although collectively they've released dozens of records, The Kitchen is only their third official group album (10 years after Full Circle and 15 since Third Eye Vision). As usual, high-flying lyricism and effortless interplay shine on each track. The production (usually handled in-house) branches out here, thanks to a collaboration with Sacramento DJ crew The Sleeprockers. The beats are still funk-driven and loaded with obscure loops (and we get more scratching than usual), but they're slightly different than that classic Hiero bump. Regardless, there's plenty of excellent stuff here.

I'm sad

For all of you saying hiero is back I think you've forgotten how much they amazed us with 3rd eye vision I feel like this was such a step in the wrong direction I'm a huge fan but realistically we all know they can provide better than this I was disappointed from the first track listen to this then 3rd eye vision and see the difference.


Hiero is back and they are killing it! So good to hear a quality album from the crew again!

Amazing album

The mighty hieroglyphics crew is back at it with another classic. Must buy for all fans of hip hop

The Oakland-based Hieroglyphics are an underground rap collective who, at their best, combine an offbeat sensibility with a strong grounding in battle rhyming, freestyling, and other hip-hop traditions. All the members enjoy their own separate careers -- founder Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Casual, the Souls of Mischief, Extra Prolific, producer/manager Domino, Pep Love, and producer Jay Biz (the latter two of whom have also worked together as the Prose). Most of the members had known each other since...
