ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rap Songs' manifesto is backed by head-bobbing funk beats, pulling from three decades of influences and bringing back methods that have been

disappearing as music technology makes producing easier. - Max Plenke , Las Vegas CityLife

"Phil A & Hassan : We rock the mic to keep the lights on, We know we nice, thats the reason why we write songs." - From the track "Rap Life" off

the duo's debut album, Rap Songs.

"Watching the juggernaut duet is like watching Cronus eat his children. From beginning to end, their stage ferocity engulfs the audience, bringing them

to fever pitch like they're perpetually toeing the line between dancing and fighting. It's that ferocity Phil A and Hassan's latest venture, their debut album

Rap Songs, is trying to divulge. And what's more, they're doing it right.

Agudelo and Hamilton started working together after frequent run-ins playing shows at Cloth & Canvas, a now-closed clothing shop and venue. Hamilton

says the two had been interested in each other's work and finally made the decision to link up after Hamilton appeared on "Eat Ya Face," a track from

Agudelo's other project, Mob Zombie." LV CityLife

With guest DJ & MC apperances from some of the best talent in the arising independent Hip Hop scene, Solid production throughout by Phil A. and relatable lyrics from Hassan & Phil, Rap Songs could be the album of the year 2011.

True Artists
Along with the New Year came the release of the new album by beat makin’ MC Phil A., Rap Songs. In this collaboration with rapper Hassan, something very special was created – an album reminiscent of the days before hip-hop/rap was whored out to the masses in pre-packaged, style-less, uninspired studio and club mixes. The beats produced by Phil A. contain the soul of a style lost in the haze MTV, radio, and the current music scene. With lyrics inspired by real-life experience – both clever and intelligent – the music does more than fill your eardrums with noise – it stimulates creative thought process and encourages movement – highly relatable lyrics, bringing forth memories of your own life experiences; rather than rap containing lyrics about ridiculous, unrealistic situations, which no one can easily relate too.

With appearances by artists Shane Stream, L.D., Cancerous One, Kool DJ Dielekt, Isaac Sawyer, Reallionaire Jream, HighDro, Marion Write, G.C., and P.O.L.O, the album offers an eclectic mix of styles that flow harmoniously with one another. The track ordering of this album is more than enjoyable, moving seamlessly from track to track without making the listener feel as if they are being assaulted by the beat. It is clear the artists put great thought into the layout and production of the track listing.

After spending the afternoon listening to the album on my sound system, I hit the repeat button and threw on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones; which allowed for an even greater appreciation of the beats. The album has easily found its way into the rotation of my listening cycle. If you were a fan of Phil A.’s work on Mob Zombie’s Join The Mob, this sophomore attempt will not only impress, it will move you. As someone who has listened to Join The Mob well over a hundred times, I can assure you, you will love this album. If you’re new to Phil A.’s beats – Phil A. & Hassan will soon become your favorite artists; and that is a guarantee.

Throw on Phil A. & Hassan’s Rap Songs, hit repeat, and feel the beat. Much love to these true artists.
