Kwite Def (aka Kamackeris of Monsta Island Czars) really stood out on Escape from Monsta Island!. Once again he teams up with X-Ray to produce another great album.
I am going to keep this review short, so instead of spending time reading a long review you can just buy it and know that not only you are buying a great album but you are also encouraging other indie artists to release more quality work.
Artz and Craftz is a great example of indie hip hop, Kwite Def is a master on the mic and X-Ray's production is once again stellar. The album's very consistent; while there is a lot of variation in the lyrical themes and production style the quality stays at a high level. There are also some guest appearances to keep things interesting.
Artz and Craftz will easily go down as one of my top albums of 2007 and and I would easily recommend it to anyone looking to check out indie hip hop.
