Despite its well-documented tendencies toward brand-name fetishism, programmatic bling, and all manner of ridiculously conspicuous consumption, hip-hop culture is nowhere near as concerned with conformity and boundary maintenance as many musical traditions are. Golden Era songs (Want to get in a real fight? Start a conversation with some bluegrass musicians about what constitutes "real" bluegrass. ) Hip-hop is, in fact, quite a big tent, and that fact has made it possible for any number of eccentrics and even borderline maniacs to make a comfortable living while challenging virtually everything that hip-hop has traditionally been thought to stand for. Golden Era CD music is a 3-disc set with 34 songs. ...See Full Description

Golden Era songs 2009 release, a joint effort between Hieroglyphics founder Del The Funky Homosapien and original Artifacts emcee Tame One. The album returns to a time when inventiveness, creativity, funky beats, and above all, lyricism - ruled Hip Hop. Produced entirely by Parallel Thought.
Del the Funky Homosapien's PARALLEL UNI-VERSES isn't designed to be a game changer. Rather, it's an attractively familiar and nostalgic album, one that brings to mind the informal collaborations found on early Lyricist Lounge or Def Jux compilations. Instead of sick rhymes, clever punch lines are the album's calling card with lines like "Selling more units than Moon Zappa" (Tame One on "Before This") and "You simians just simulate" (Del on "Special") being representative of the overall flavor. What makes it all worthwhile is how complimentary the aggressive Tame and the laidback Del are, how fun their strutting and swaggering is, and how funky the tracks feel with Drum and Knowledge from the Parallel Thoughts Crew providing a wide variety of throwback vibes. Punchy bass, jittery scratching, and looped xylophone samples make "Flashback" more than your average homage to hip-hop's golden age, although it's not just the Thoughts crew who are responsible as these veteran lyricists can go way back and "get nastier than Blowfly." Eerie beats make "The Franchise" a highlight, sounding like they might have melted off the b-side of some old Mo Wax 12-inch. But it's the druggy closer "Gaining Ground" that really stuns, slinking across the speakers like Pink Floyd and Massive Attack passing spliffs for six minutes. Songs are allowed as much time as they need but the album as a whole is economical and right-sized at 11 tracks. This is highly enjoyable weekend music from the underground, nothing more, nothing less.
