Ams Uno – “The Day of Devotion!” – [Labeless Illtelligence Records]

Representing what looks like an active RI scene, emcee Ams Uno, out of Woonsocket RI, shows off a wide range of hip hop styles on this album, bringing equal parts spirituality, social consciousness, B-boy swagger, and goofing around (sing-songs, fairy tales, and movie clips). Soul and ragga sounds flavor the music in more than one place. The poetry is sharp and crazy no matter what, and the man’s emcee skills are beyond question. Homies DJ Orator, Missin Ellements, Esh, and Gibran support him with good raw beats and creative production. Orator does all the cuts and gets to showcase a bit on #20. A few of the tracks start and/or end with snippets of songs by other artists. #19 is nothing but a short slice of Disney’s ‘Jungle Book?. Maybe you’re already down with the Wooney brand of hip hop, but I wasn’t until now.
