ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Many of us are able to remember those days as a youngster when that dreadful wintertime cold came over us. We would come in from school or from playing outside with a red nose, itching eyes, drippy nose hoping that mom will be able to work her magic and heal the aches and pains. Many mothers were able to take one look at our face and know exactly what medicine to grab, and knew precisely how to give you the medicine. For those who hated taking medicine, there was a technique that is still used widely today called "putting the medicine in the candy," as a result disguising the medicine inside of a treat, a method that grew to be very effective; paving the way for many medicine products today that taste, feel and look like typical candy from the corner store.

The hip-hop industry is sick ladies and gentlemen, every time you turn on your radio it's like stepping outside in 30 degree weather without a winter a coat, the end result being a virus that gets into your soul and marinates until you get one thing – Candy Medicine. The concept is simple, medicine that is not apparent, but instead transparently working its way into your system inside of candy that you are used to.

Let's face it; listening to mainstream hip-hop today can be a sickening experience for some and its time for the hip-hop community to heal. What happened to hip-hop music with soul, with heart? What happened to hip-hop music that didn't glorify material wealth but instead hip-hop music that focused on keeping the culture alive? This type of music still exists, from your Common's, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Dead Prez, Kanye West, Little Brother, but the top 40 virus has it in its control, and only releases like Candy Medicine can free it.

Candy Medicine is the latest effort from revolutionary emcee and producer ScholarMan, previously known as Scholar. Scholar is now legally ScholarMan, separating himself from the many Scholar's in the music industry, not only by name but by sound as well. Candy Medicine consists of 12 tracks, solely produced and written by Scholar with one goal in mind – to heal. How does it heal? Through tunes you can nod your head to, and gain something from, real hip-hop. On this album ScholarMan explains his view on what real hip-hop is, and it's worth a listen. From pounding beats, inspirational lyrics and an underlying message on every track, ScholarMan sets himself apart with every track.

From the reviews I have read I had to check it out! Hot stuff

Steven Choi

WOW
The beats are sick on this CD. Everyone should check out this CD and his other albums. His new album Soul Purpose is phenomenal

Jon

What hip-hop needs!
I caught info about this album from Hip-Hop Linguistics as well, not one complaint about this album. Beautiful production, intelligent lyrics, what hip-hop needs.

Reginald

Sick as hell..
Now this is classic hip-hop!

kyle


beats are sweet, lyrically it\'s very talented, and a great message for lovers of true hip-hop. Great cd from start to finish!

celso

!!!
Very good CD... start to finish it's got a great vibe.

Craig

Simply classic
I read a Scholarman article on the 5 types of hip hop albums, which ranged from garbage to classic. After I finished reading it I wondered when I would ever find a truely classic album, as I'd never heard one that fit his description. After listening to Candy Medicine, more than a few times, I've finally got the classic I was looking for. This is hands down the greatest album I've ever heard and every time I listen to it I gain more apprectiation for not only Scholarman but hip-hop in general. If anyone is looking at these reviews and thinking about buying it it's my advice that you do as soon as possible because you wont regret it.

Nat

overwhelmingly soulful yet hard-hitting production
I constantly hear rappers talking about real hip-hop, or how they’re representatives of real hip-hop. Unfortunately, most of those cats simply talk about how they’re real without incorporating anything real into their music. As if real hip-hop is somehow defined by a bunch of songs talking about what real hip-hop should be. ScholarMan is one of those MCs that doesn’t have to talk about being real. He just demonstrates real through his music. And I realized that in a major way this week ...

Faye
