ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MuAmin Collective

The MuAmin is a collective. Drums, words, samples, keys, minds, rhymes, & perspectives have been collected, filtered, & chopped beyond recognition. The artifice resulting is aLIVEmUSic. Since 1997, MuAmin Collective has been pushing their sound politics wherever a few are gathered. Comprised of Josiah (ZiON) Quarles & Aaron (aLIVE) Snorton, MuAmin has long served the public with that unadulterated rawness.

The Cleveland-born & -bred new-groes have shared stages with De La Soul, Pete Rock, Illogic, The Coup and Hieruspecs, just to name a few.

We're on some rust belt buckle & bootstrap, hand claps & bare knuckles, dusty 45’s, & blustery winters…It’s called the Lake Effect & there is snow in the forecast. Storm fronts at the store fronts. No grills or frills, just real talk. Accept this offering as a gift from the muse, the red, black, and blues, & the green in-between. Give these vibrations Homes of Understanding. Cee Us & know there’s OnEWAY & that’s up...

We live in a Totalitarian State. Get the Total Experience. Fuck with the MuA…

BUY THIS ALBUM IF YOU LOVE HIPHOP
There's only one way to go and that's ...The MuAmin Kollective. This album is genuine hiphop from the beginning to the end. Record labels should rush to sign this talented group. And to think I forgot what REAL hiphop sounded like...thanks for the reminder yall! Peace

John Book

the entire album is an instant classic, I feel it.
Industry Standard is a blast of the dope shit, the kind of stuff I will play for everyone I see, recommend to anyone who wants me to tell them what I think will be hot. The Muamin Collective conducts themselves with well written lyrics layered over tightly produced tracks. "White Tea" is one of the best tracks on here, and this is not about an alternative to green tea, but rather about, in the words of Caron Wheeler, having to survive living in the light.



Forget it, the rest of the songs... no, the entire album is an instant classic, I feel it. It has that gritty yet carefully selected production that I like, where the samples are obscured but not to the point where you can't nod your head. It is the "beats, rhymes & life" philosophy of words complimenting the music, and vice versa, while looking at the world from a personal perspective, not one filled with false hopes and dreams. If Blueprint or Slug were produced by 9th Wonder, they would all scratch their heads and go "damn, that Muamin Collective is nice". At least these guys use different snares (a/k/a "take that shit to The Breaks".).
