Himself - PROVIDENCE PLAYS NO FAVORITES CD
December 1, 2001 by Jeff
Coming off the strength of THE NETHERWORLDS LP, one third of that trio, HIMSELF, is dropping his debut solo album on GALAPAGOS4. "PROVIDENCE PLAYS NO FAVORITES" shows this prolific MCs talents as a songwriter, while keeping up that bump youre expecting. HIMSELF digs deep and offers up heart and soul in his lyrics. Whether rapping introspectively or snapping off at the lip, it is never in vain. The beats knock with that LA to Chicago vibe, with ANACRON handling most, and DJ PNS, DJ White Lightning, Justin Tewn & Aloe all stepping in with one banger. "Providence" is sure to keep all fans of THE NETHERWORLDS satiated and attract those looking for the soul to be brought back to hip-hop. Cop it now on the product page!
