Jedi Mind Tricks - A History Of Violence
Excitement was all over my face when I opened my last editor package of discs. The new Jedi Mind Tricks has arrived. Just released this past Tuesday (11.11.8), Vinnie Paz and Dj Stoupe do not disappoint in their latest release A History of Violence.
The intro is your usual scratch and bite JMT style with samples galore. Monolith is a quick favorite, mincing aggressive lyricism and beats with a subtle female vocal assistance. For more fans who enjoy Stoupe's record work more than Paz lyrics, the interlude's and exploiting of vinyl work make up just about the the sickest beats I've heard in years.
But for those who love the whole ball of wax, Trail of Lies is just about the best track. Paz's tone and kick here takes the fantastic beat chorus for a ride. The lyrics have a great twist on how television and sensationalism can be dangerous. "They're finding different ways to take your fu*cking soul from you, a show about a model will make your self-esteem low for you". Other tracks like Godflesh (Featuring Block McCloud, Demoz) have terrific energy in the beats and work around the rhymin skills of Paz. Terror sits on a variety of unordinary instruments and samples used for hooks.
JMT has added another staple to a very respectable career and catalogue. The album features Block McCloud, Outerspace, Doap Nixon, King Magnetic, Outerspace and Demoz.
