be the new Hannibel Lector from the New Jeru sector"
describing Tame when he does it himself. The former Artifacts member
is coming back with his solo debut on Eastern Conference Records. Comin
from Brick City like Manifest Destiny and Redman, Tame One is repping
the Garden State with creative lyrics and good production. J-Zone, RJD2,
Mighy Mi, and Johnny Dangerous laced Tame some nice beats, and he comes
through with some nice lyrics. Cage is the only MC to touch the mic
besides Tame. Just think of the possibility if J-Zone rocked the mic.
tracks include "When Rappers Attack" and "Heat."
"Iz It Me" is a nice cut that talks about the sell out rappers,
where Tame doesn't break any fresh ground with the content. He's kicks
some good points though about the wackness of music videos, how he's
askin artists to at least have their videos relate to the song. Point
Dangerous lays down the beat for this one. A bonus cut on the album
is "Homage to the Bomberz." Calm down herbs, its not a tribute
to terrorists and shit like that, its dedicated to graf artists. Hip
Hop needs more integration of the various modes of expression, and it's
tight when artists pay tribute to other genres.
is a tight track to listen to just to hear the way Tame travels through
his verses. He's dropping similies and metaphors like it's his job,
which it really is. It's a really short track, but it's a quality listen.
Don't expect Tame to get deep and philosophical on the mic, but he's
got a style that holds a Head's interest because you're just waiting
to see what he's gonna rhyme next. If you're looking for some reflective
tyoe hip hop, this album ain't for you, but if you like the straight-up
rhyming, strong wordplay-type album, give Tame a listen.
