iTunes Review

Two California hip-hop icons team up for this 16-track collaboration loaded with explosive, sample-based beats and potent wordplay. Muggs has been making hits forever; he got his start with 7A3 in the late '80s before providing classic soundscapes for Cypress Hill, Funkdoobiest, and House of Pain, among countless others. Planet Asia emerged from Fresno in the late '90s and has been going hard ever since, releasing dozens of projects as a solo artist and a member of multiple crews. Pain Language finds them sharing the stage with other likeminded mike-rockers, including B-Real, Killah Priest, GZA, Chace Infinite, and Sick Jacken. As always, Muggs' moody tracks deftly balance funkiness and soulful melancholy, grimy yet catchy at the same time. Asia's razor-sharp lyricism continues to impress; though he remains steadfastly indie-minded, he's still at the top of his game. Check out "Black Mask Men," "Deadly Blades," and "Black Angels."

Customer Reviews

Muggs & PA deliver a top 5 album of 08

The album completely live up to expectations. This is clearly Planet Asia's best album and he can thank Muggs for that. EVERY track is dope. Always been a fan of PA but really the only time he has the production to back him was on The Medicine. DJ Muggs continues to deliver. First he revives the Wu sound on Grandmasters & creates a classic w/ GZA. Then helps Sick Jacken make a good album. Now he makes PA's best album, hants down. Not to mention he had 2 standout beats on Ill Bill's album. It's amazing how Muggs has gained new following from his production these last few years even though he's been a great producer for years (as part of Cypress Hill and producing for Ice Cube, House of Pain and the Soul Assassins albums). A legend and one of the best producers working right now. PA shines on the album and great guests do as well. The beats compliment him perfectly and Planet Asia spits some lyrical gems that he has always been capable of. GZA, Killah Priest, B-Real, Prodigal Sunn & Chace Infinite all provide standout verses. Definitely a Wu-Tang presence on the album which I liked of course. I think Chace really shined and is slept on a lot (people need to check out him & DJ Khalil's Self Scientific albums).

Instant Classic !

Mugg's Production along with Asia's skills and to add insult to injury you got a deadly line up consisting of GZA, Sick Jacken and Killah Priest just to name a few. Best of 08 hand'sdown !

Classic

one of the best albums of the year
