Album Notes
Waterflow erodes, shapes, and carves. It is persistent and inevitable. And like the natural phenomenon, the sophomore album Waterflow by Seattle artist/emcee Tulsi erodes, shapes, and carves. In his follow-up album to Fresh Points on Life, Tulsi again erodes stale hip hop themes by talking about things we care about and things we can relate to. Tulsi shapes Waterflow into what hip hop should be: substance and style, without sacrificing one for the other. Waterflow takes you back to the Golden Age of hip hop without sounding dated, carving and cutting with a simple formula—beats and rhymes. Tulsi rhymes over beats by Confidence, crafting songs that punch and resonate.

Tulsi’s modus operandi has always been to reproduce the quality of the Golden Age of hip hop with a new school freshness. How many old-timers have you heard say “They don’t make ‘em like they used to anymore”? Waterflow is made with solid wood. No plastics here.

Tulsi again showcases his off-beat sense of humor, his ear for quality, and his knack for saying exactly what we’ve been thinking all along. Throughout the album he showcases his imagination, technical skill, and ear for what has and hasn’t worked in the last 20 years of hip hop.

For a sophomore album, Waterflow is one of the rare follow-up efforts that exceeds the first. It’s Tulsi’s Godfather II or Empire Strikes Back. There’s a reason so many sophomore albums disappoint. Under pressure to out-do themselves, artists overthink, overproduce, and overcook their songs. Waterflow is just right.

Tulsi’s fingerprints are all over Waterflow’s beats, production, and obviously, content. He has been showcasing Waterflow the only way a good throw-back emcee would: by performing live shows.

Great album
Wow! What a great album. When people state the production is top notch I am always sceptical. Let me tell you now that the production IS TOP NOTCH. The album is in a similar vein to Artmosphere's rapping style, although, Tulsi has his own indomitable style. Without doubt this is one of my faviroute albums at the moment. I listen to a lot of hip hop - from the likes of Jedi mind tricks, non - phixion, sandpeople, swollen members, outerspace, grayskul, sleep, brother ali - and this is up there with the best of them, albeit in a different style - GET THIS ALBUM - NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
