A-Class brings Hip-Hop back to life with his debut album, Motive Response. His Grade-A classic rhymes and complicated rhythms put mainstream music into after school programs. He twists each word to have dual meanings and uses metaphors from science to TV sitcoms. Using his voice and educated mind, he succeeds in telling a different story in each track with the same hustle and dedication.
The emcee's compilation has the main elements of a great Hip-Hop record. Its lyricist is on point, you can lap dance to some beats and head nod to others, and it's complete with witty interludes and old school samples.
The record is well produced by Tom Delay, P-nyce, Rosirus, Big Whiz, and DJ Dyrti. They allow A-Class to stand out as the artist, but keep the music well mixed through the speakers. no EQ-ing involved ladies and thugs. Each beat incorporates samples ranging from piano to big brass to jazz flutes and heavy percussion. Samples circa 1930s to present day gel completely with A-Class's solid tone.
The artwork on the anticipated album is also done by A-Class himself. His abstract graffiti has been seen all over Brake Fast Records and the Baltimore City Area.
The artist has a few jump-off tracks, itching to be singles off the record. Hope gives the album a chance to be in the clubs and climb straight up from the underground. Look out for A-Class's Motive Response record this summer on the Brake Fast Records website and at A-Class myspace.
