Published Jan 29, 2013Toronto, ON underground vet Theology3 has been building his resume one project at a time since way back in 2003. Along the way, he's collaborated with a vast array of Canadian talent, including the likes of Shad, Ken Starr and none other than your boy Drizzy. On his latest project, Airplane Over One Way Streets, Theo3 hits the mic over some organic, soulful production, with guests Andreena Mill, Tanika Charles, fellow Freedom Writers cohorts Tona and Frankie Payne, and contributions from board vets such as DJ Eclipse and Grouch. Theo3 kicks things off on the right foot with guests Tona and Andreena Mill over a feel-good, vintage backdrop on "How I Flow Part 2" and keeps the positive vibes rolling on "Flowers in the Sun". The sombre kick drum of "I'm Alone" interrupt the flow of the record somewhat; however, Theo's only human and we all need to vent sometime, right? It must be noted that he shows that he's got some melodic singing chops to boot. He shakes it off though and gets back to basics (and to where he sounds best), flowing easily over the very Toronto-sounding boom-bap dished out on "That Ol' Rap Shit." Airplane Over One Way Streets is a solid record that certainly doesn't deserve the "Screwface" T-Dot fans are so prone to wearing.
