SOUL Purpose The Construction

SOUL Purpose The Construction
Half of the earnings made from this album go to the Boys & Girls Club of America. That’s not something you expect from a rapper very often, let alone an underground one, but SOUL (Sense Of Understanding Life’s) Purpose feels the need to give back, despite "being the man... who stays the brokest” ("I'm Pacin'”). On The Construction, the hyper-flowing philanthropist takes on the topics that average rappers do — the industry, the ladies, the ’hood — and delivers averagely too. There are a few memorable tracks ("Universal Condition,” featuring Murs, "The Way that We Live,” "Lemons,” featuring Urban Sun and Redskin) but the bulk of the median music eating up most of the album prevents it from being anything remarkable. SOUL definitely has talent (as one would need to recruit cameos from Immortal Technique, Wordsworth and C-Rayz Walz) but, unfortunately he exhausts most of it on very "blah” beats and "been there” rhymes.
