Hip-Hop: Year in Review 2010
6. D-Sisive Vaudeville (Urbnet)
D-Sisive mines the melancholic territory of his recent output with personal, honest introspection and believable, touching second and third person narratives while mixing it up with the scathing battle raps and braggadocio of his early Eat the Beat days. The pop culture references come fast and furious, rewarding research and repeat listens. Production collaborator Fresh Kils brings banging beats, morose melodies and warped children's tunes to the table with live instruments, Moog and weird sample selections. Vaudeville may be experimental and nerdy, but it still appeals to the average hip-hop head.
