Just as M.O.P. fans have been asking 50 Cent for three straight years, how about some hardcore? Kanye Wests GOOD Music imprint has tied a few acts of their own up in paperwork. While it might be a good thing that Fonzworth Bentley is still in development, veteran genre-bending troop Sa-Ra Creative Partners has had flavors for your ear dating back to the early 90s. Following a year with success from K-Os and Gym Class Heroes, Sa-Ras The Hollywood Recordings (Babygrande) is an appetizer that satisfies like an entrée.Lead single Feel the Bass with Talib Kweli is Sa-Ra at their most accessible. The group gives an instrumental thats one part Spacek, one part Salt N Pepas Push It, while Talib Kwelis rapid fire flow channels golden age emceeing. Most of the songs are devoted to lovemaking but there are the peppy R&B ballads, such as the Bilal-assisted Sweet Sour You, while Pharoahe Monchs ode to cunalingus, Fish Fillet is blush-inducing. While the metaphor might be a bit junior high, the music carries a doctorate of spacey funk, dynamic rhythms, and beautiful vocal accents. With the exception of the misguided Capone-N-Noreaga collaboration, Not on Our Level, Sa-Ra proves infinite capabilities in their craft and vision.The trio uses guests to add signature to each track. Often providing just a chorus, the band still refuses to be underplayed. Led by Shafiq Husayn, the Sa-Ra Creative Partners sound lives up to its name, utilizing over 12 instruments. With just one samplea Herbie Hancock chop on Hey Love, this is organic Hip-Hop at its best. Whether its the underwater funk of Lean on Me or the broken Jazz of And If, Sa-Ras sound could be described as an iPod virus gone terribly right.Summertime rap has always favored a relaxed, sensual and mellow vibe. Sa-Ras The Hollywood Recordings look into the horizon of sound and style and offer the warmer months something unduplicated. While rappers typically produce mixtape hybrids in the independent pre-release lane, these guys use full creative control amidst a plethora of interesting guests in their first nationally recognized album.
