At first listen you probably won’t get an impression of how superb this album is. The tracks wonder all over the hip-hop map, and that might leave the average listener somewhat confused. However, upon further getting into “GOD Fearing Gangsters“, one cannot but recognize that it’s the epitome of what it takes to make an exemplary gangsta-rap without cursing or explicit language. And let me assure you, the number of filler tracks here amounts to zero.
AntBanks380 flawlessly blends together very different lyrical topics and musical themes. Whether he is rapping fast or menacingly low-key and slow, he sounds very convincing, and his rhymes are tastefully good. The music gives lots of variety as well, both in beats and in melodies, ranging from floating funky chords, to harder hip-hop beats, to slow flowing rhythms.
Unfortunately I cannot supply individual track names of any standouts, as the album for reviewing came in a special all-rolled-into-one digital track. “GOD Fearing Gangsters“, has a flow and concept to it that many rap albums just don’t have, and it goes beyond the usual rap that grows tiresome after a while. It’s valid and powerful, and there are a lot of topical references that keep it fresh.
Many of the slickly packaged corporate pretenders that litter the hiphop genre, probably couldn’t hold a candle to a real deal like AntBanks380. “GOD Fearing Gangsters“, is near the top of my list as a favorite hiphop album, because the music, lyrics, flow and production is tight!
