I don’t like to classify or make sub-genres of Hip Hop, but this is on some backpacker blow your mind ish. Yes that is a good thing. I started playing Taiyamo Denku’s Articles of Mind and right away it made me feel proud when I rocked a backpack everywhere. A walkman, sketchbook,and sharpies handy to jot down ideas and bump whatever mixtape I had. When I say Articles of Mind is backpacker I also want to include the lyrical content. The lyrics are strong, in your face, blunt statements of the political & social issues, create expression, and the state of Hip hop. Call it what you want, but Taiyamo Denku stays true to that and more. Articles of Mind also has dope guest appearances by some heavy hitters. Buy Taiyamo Denku – Articles of Mind online. Also check out Taiyamo Denko’s free download Lost Thoughts on BandCamp. BIG thanks to the folks at Uncommon Records for the heads up.
