iTunes Review

Bay Area’s Heiroglyphics are an entrepreneurial, free-spirited group of emcees and producers that gained acclaim in the early 90s, when several members inked major-label deals, including quirky founder Del Tha Funkee Homosapian, raspy rabble-rouser Casual, and free-flowing foursome Souls of Mischief. The crew’s multi-faceted members had collaborated on countless projects prior to 1998’s 3rd Eye Vision, but this marked the collective’s first full-length album as Heiro. Sunny vocal and instrument samples set the stage on opener “You Never Knew,” which showcases the crew flexing verbal skills and professing the type of D.I.Y. work ethic that propelled them to release this album independently. “The Who” features the emcees swiftly passing the mic back-and-forth over a slightly haunting, jazzy production. Although each of the seven emcees get spotlighted on a solo song throughout the 22-track album, the group chemistry brings the best out of each member. At times Zen-like with mystical lyrics, this is also a battle-ready competitive collective. 3rd Eye Vision is on par with — or better than — any Heiro-related album that preceded it.

Solid Beats, Lyrical Brilliance.

Lyrical reinventors like Tajai, Phesto D, A Plus & Del have allowed hip-hop enthusiasts like myself to see this dying breed of emcees in a new light. Thank you Hiero. You will be remembered.

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...
