Album Review

Cap D – “Return of The Renegade ” – [All Natural,Inc.]

Max Level   6/3/2007   CD, Hip Hop

The deep, varied Chicago hip hop sound is all over this. MC/producer Cap D (All Natural) is on top of his game with intelligent lyrics and forceful delivery, dropping serious urban raps over a wide range of beat styles. Guest vocals by One Be Lo, Ali, Iomos Marad, Rhymefest, Cuttness Tone, and Majestik Legend. The production is an unpredictable array of sampled records and fresh studio beats. It could be a bit more focused sonically though; over the course of thirteen tracks, six different producers check in and maybe that’s a couple too many. But when it works it works: #7 has the tension of a midnight street fight about to happen and #8 has perfect production by J Rawls that doesn’t overwhelm the lyrics. Dialogue clips from martial arts and gangster movies add flavor to some of the tracks.
