Breakdown – “Social Studies ” – [Saving Grace Records]

This talented MC from Tampa FL isn’t afraid to get personal; many of the lyrics focus on his difficulties and family issues, letting you know how he got where he is. The bragging is a bit more toned-down than we hear from other emcees; Breakdown comes right out and says no way he’s the best or the illest but he’s got something to say so pay attention. Cool attitude. All of the backgrounds and beats are strong. A handful of producers pitch in, and it’s all good; there’s nothing that doesn’t fit just right with the flow. On #4, he checks out the talent at the local club and there’s a happy ending.
Track #16 is unlisted. It’s about 4 minutes of silence followed by 3 minutes of human beat-boxing.

    Track #16 is actually 4 minutes and 20 seconds of silence followed by Effex the beatboxer and Breakdown rhyming over top.

  • Hey Pete- Thanks for clarifying. Sure, Breakdown is on the track. I guess I kind of thought that went without saying, since it’s his CD. I mentioned the human beatbox because that’s the thing that really jumps out and makes the track different from all the rest.
