Its been years since we have had anyone that could potentially fill the shoes of New York’s greatest rappers such as Big L, B.I.G. and Big Pun, But after hearing a few mixtapes and random releases I think we found him. Temanology I think will be the one kid that brings us back to listening to rap. He will be the one that could possibly bring real hip-hop/rap back to mainstream. The first time I heard Termanology was his 50 bodies mixtape with Static Selektah. That tape defined him in my mind as the lyrical resurrection of G-rap with passion laced all through his words. His newest release is a two part ideal called Talking To God. Now you all know that Common’s Resurrection is my favorite album of all time and Termanology is doing it justice with using the Resurrection beat over Part 2. Below I put the song, check it.
Not that his words and style are enough but he is backed by the legendary Dj Premire on and off most of his mixtapes. His first album, Politics As Usual, will be dropping September 30th. Politics As Usual has a legendary production list with people like Large Professor, Pete Rock, The Alchemist, Hi-tek, Easy Mo Bee, and three tracks by Preemo. As far as guests go Freeway, Bun-B, Prodigy and Lil Fame of M.O.P. are all on the album. I put the video for my favorite track on the bottom so check that, his myspace and his website, Termanologymusic.com. All I’m saying is go by this damn album and show those record label cats we are still here.
