ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When the beginning of an album is a melodic mixture of banjo’s and rhythmic bass you know you have something special. This blended with Dakota laying down Vermont’s funkiest anthem “Itz VT” with lines such as “That’s what is yo/ I’m with my kin folk/cuz in V we get it in and handle biz yo”. The head nodding rhythms of Nastee’s beats doesn’t miss a step with the hard driving track “Luv That” where Nastee leads off reminding us why VT union has been making people “ Luv That” since 2006 with Manus leading off with his completely unique flow of R&B abilities with lyrical wit, something he’s been known for since he first handled the microphone. Not to be outdone Dakota brings his style he’s he best explains as “Boom Bap Boom Bam” to seal this song as a certified house rocker at shows or clubs. “Make Rume” is a certified street single with features from Malice of Clipse and Bobby Konders of Hot 97 NYC. This single was also remixed by Statik Selektah. Such star power from Vermont? Both versions are destined for radio play and will change the views people have of Vermont Hip Hop. Nastee follows up “Make Rume” with one of his own solo efforts “All Goes Down” which takes a Arabian inspired orchestral beat with words of how corruption effects all of us, mixed with an off tone chorus the song holds your ear till the end with bars like “I dangle my Kangol/At an angle/Sing the songs like fuck the Star Spangled”. “All Goes Down” is followed by “This is Me” which features Dakota rhyming with Boot Camp Clik veteran Sean P as they lay down verses introducing or reintroducing them to the World. Sean P keeps his renowned gritty style with lines like “This is Me, yea Americas Nightmare/Young black, don’t give a fuck, I’m standing right here”. The serious nature of “This is me” is shifted to the jazz infused beat for “All on my Nutsack” which features fellow Vermonter Colby Stiltz and Dakota talking about how people just wont stop following their career or their style. The easy going style of the beat is a contrast to the nature of the words, which is tantalizing and often times comedic. Dakota continues his flare for golden era style hip hop in “Nobody” which is surely an anthem for people who don’t have it all and just want a friend on the weekends “At the beach I saw a girl of whom I’m impressed by/Caramel complexion sort of looking like Left Eye”. Dakotas “Nobody” track is followed by the market ready song “Whats that all about” which features S.I.N Sizzle, B-Free and Manus taking over a Dan Freeman produced beat telling the world how the top of the Map lives. The rest of the Union is not one to miss the opportunity to tell the world who they are and “Pop off” is the perfect vessel for such proclamations. The beat has a strong bass line and an even catchier chorus with strong showings from Dakota and Manus, which includes Manus’ strongest showing on the VT Union is Dead album. “Memories” follows and hit’s the nail on the head in terms of nostalgic hip hop that has been avoiding peoples speakers for some time now. Dakota tells the story of the Vermonter, but a story that has to rouse thoughts of everyone’s childhood from country to the busiest city dweller “Eating creamees after the little league games/And taking trips out of town by myself on the train”. Nastee’s beat making prowess is in no short order on the Union is Dead and doesn’t miss a step onto another Nastee solo effort “All my Dogz” which gathers up all the prisoners and down and outs of society and how we can all make it to a higher level of ability and consciousness. The conscience style of “All My Dogz” transfers perfectly into “Stand the Rain” which features Vermonter BURNTmd and Boston MC Akrobatik as they aim to inspire weathering the storm we call life. The end of the “VT Union is Dead” is the Statik Selektah remix of “Make Rume” which is capable of flaking paint off the walls (yes its that good). So as people wonder where Vermont is, for the time being the only place Vermont should be is in tune with this 13 track album that will surely go down as a New England classic as well as borrowing New York’s spotlight momentarily. As Bobby Konders states at the conclusion of the album “We taking over!!!”.
