Qwel & Maker – “So Be It” – [GALAPAGOS4]

Super reliable underground hip hop music. Qwel (emcee) and Maker (beat architect) have been working together for a while now and it shows; the two fit together like a fist and a glove and a punch to the face. As usual, Qwel lets his raw wordy rhymes fly while Maker ransacks the record bin and drops in big beats for just the perfect accompaniment. “Back Stage Pass” kicks the thing off in high energy style, but my favorite track is probably “Lunch Money”, a tribute to poor families trying to get by. This here is a pre-release sampler from Galapagos4 with alternate versions and a couple of bonus tracks: #13 is a DJ Bizkid preview mix of the tracks, and #14 finds Qwel delivering some serious rhyming over a Graham Nash(!) sample.
