Welcome to the "Accusations Of Treachery" album, presented by Configaration Record's artist Ravage. The former Sony Records signee subliminally reveals why he's now signed to C.E.O/Producer Configa's label using only the album as his explanation. Cut from the same flesh, yet vastly unique as brothers are, there's no argument UK artist Ravage belongs in his new home. Configa's last album release "Hastility (H1)" echos the same movement embodied within this album. It's "Hastility"..... It's "Accusations Of Treachery".....roll it all together uphill combined with Configa's recent signing to Chuck D's label SlamJamz Records as a producer....& = Public Enemy?!?!? My math is terrible, do your own configarations.
All cards on the table, MC Ravage kills these 10 tracks softly in his own distinct way, his controversial colors blending perfectly with Tone Jonez's idiosyncratic production. Both flavors are potent enough to distract you from one another. If you have trouble focusing on both at the same time, just take those tracks back to the beginning and start again if you miss a beat or syllable like I did.
Initially, I was and still am quite enamored/overwhelmed by the way in which Ravage was driven to construct this album. It's a uniquely blended arrangement with his frustrations seeping out on to the tracks. Fear of failure as a father, memories of personal grief, record label politics, the mistreatment of black people and relationship heartbreak are just some of the issues eloquently raised within his lyrics.
"Some Of Us Stay Kids, Some Of Us Will Grow...While Some Remain Brainless"
The first promo track for this album is "Memories Of You"
Take a change of pace... listen to second promo track "Hot Potataz"
The two tracks above are definitely some of the hottest tracks on this album but if I have to choose I would say it's track #6 "I'm Scared". Come to your own conclusions as to why I relate to this track so much.
I rate this album a 10/10 in a category of it's own. It's music to open your mind, music to inspire and promote free thought. The teachings and hallmarks of classic Golden-Era hip-hop are etched within this album. This is "Accusations Of Treachery" there is only one real power to fear and his name is God, not a corporation.
Stay tuned for our upcoming interview with hip-hop supremo, Configa.
