This new album by Ta-Ku & #SpittinInDaWip Alumni Raashan Ahmad “Low Fidelity, High Quality” is the best HipHop album I’ve hear all year hands down. The beats on this project are so sick, it’s 16 tracks of that real HipHop I love, no filler! And of course Raashan Ahmad diliver like an all time great with his delivery, flow and content! I already knew if Raashan was involved with a project it was gonna be dope but I didn’t know how dope it was gonna be…HipHop dopeness.
Below is the official decription of the album:
Raashan Ahmad was on a euro tour some weeks ago and during his stop in Berlin we were talking music over dinner. I told Raashan that we are about to release an album with Ta-ku (which has happened in the meantime, check out the “DOWHATYOULOVE” album) and he asked me whether I knew that he recorded a full album with him some time ago during his last australian tour. No, I didn’t know that and getting my hand on the album turned out to be not too easy as it couldn’t be located for quite a while. In the end Raashan found it on an old hard drive and I was a fan of the album instantly. It’s raw hip hop in the truest sense. None of the songs are longer then 3 minutes, quite some are around the 2 minute mark. Nothing but dope beats and raps with some unreleased Ta-ku instrumentals sprinkled in between.
In celebration of both artists releases on Jakarta Records this year we figured it would be nice to give it away for free digitally and even better we decided that pressing it on wax would be nice too. Only 250 copies, numbered, no repress, the first 80 copies on clear wax.
