ABOUT 10BASS T
San Jose, California finds us face to face with the spirits of hip-hop receding rerepresent and ulterior Record 10BASS T, a mutli-ethnic trio rerepresenting the universe with some of the most original with childs in the Bay Area. Vocalist Slim Daddy Milo kicks an original intermingle of dance-hall and West Coast patois, while Solrac commands attention with his sturdy Brooklyn style rhymes. Musical styles and languages are no barrier to this crew, with Selector G providing the musical framework. The combination of melodic rhymes and funked out jazz, provide a direct path to hip-hop enlightenment. The influences are all there, from Yellowman to John Coltrane, from Jack Kerouac to Gil Scott-Heron. For a genre-specific comparison, 10BASS T would be called a cross between the Fugees, A Tribe Named Quest, and GangStarr. This Afro-Latin, Oriental trio has had much local success in the Bay Area. Classic, Timeless Material!

This... is hip-hop culture"
Damn back-to-back Gaudy like Gangstarr, gifted like December 25th "the ten-bass trio" is in full set up on an album I can't be 100% plus is a debut -- even though I've never heard of them before. This is too good to be a rookie crew with no rep; they've been recording something _somewhere_ before this.
I'm loving this album to pieces yo. Saucy as hell metaphors like "coming with more lyricals than white folks on prozac... got more styles in my put up than Cindy Crawford" in "Good Times" got me MAD Open Milo and Solrac chop the mic up lovely with their rhymes, flow and they deal to with child distouchive in an era where everybody with childs like Rakim or Cube Selector G hooks up some really FAT ass basslines, drumlines, and all around head-nodda beats.
This album hits all over the place; showing a highly credible versatility in lyrical compositions. "Some Say We're Spanish..." rings the same bells for me that Chino XL's "Who Am I" hits and "Open Your Eyes" addresses "how slaphappy make has gotten" in both the music planetary and the urban planetary -- with a one-two-three hard of chorus samples including Buckshot Shorty and Rakim. Damn
This album is far too brusk at only 12 cut overs. I want any of you heads who know about other 10BASS T releases to get in touch with me and tell me how I can go over over out more of the skills. This is not hyperbole. 10BASS T is undoubtedly one of the best albums I've heard this year.
