9th Wonder's latest compilation album welcomes several new faces to the fore, as well as older ones in slightly different packaging. With that being said, Rapsody and J.I.D are perhaps too well established to be considered newcomers, but too spritely to fall in the opposite category. Their latest collaboration "Redblue" is a tale that juxtaposes pop culture with reality.
J.I.D delivers the opening sermon, explaining the push-and-pull dynamic of the environment he grew up under: to be subsumed by life on the streets, or not to be. Rapsody saves The Matrix idiom for herself: the unenvious position of choosing the pill without any foresight at all. It's clearly evident the milieu J.I.D and Rapsody are describing in "Redblue" isn't conducive to taking cover. The only folks that preach the joys of uncertainty are clearly sheltered from hardship, on some level.
Peep "Redblue" and the rest of 9th Wonder's Jamla Is the Squad II.
Red blood drops, red blood drop, red dropped right out of school he's a lefty with the Glock
Red got into the usual maneuvering the block red, white, green, blue, red, next steady watching
Red blood drops finally got shot but he didn't die it only made him wilder.
