|Review:||Over the past couple years, Corey Red & Precise easily
qualify as the most sought-after duo in hip hop without a
The heavily pursued New York based crew has been on numerous
mixtapes and compilations, along with touring on the recent
Evolution II Tour with Men of Standard and Tonex, among
others (see tour recap).
CDAfter years of anxious anticipation, the duo fills the
proverbial musical gulf with their debut release, Resistance
This 19-cut escapade is chock full of rugged and raw tracks
that serve to backdrop the potent and powerful lyrical
delivery of Red & Precise.
It would be too easy to compare this duo to Redman & Method
Man. After all, both duos have an amazing street vibe and a
lyrical intensity second to none. Yet, Red & Precise's flow
is laced by the Holy Spirit, and their lyrics bear witness
The leadoff track, titled "Bump In Da Night", gives
outstanding insight into the potential of the duo. The vibe
is straight East Coast and scratches that musical itch to
nod your head to a gritty street track.
"The Martyr's Anthem" has Todd Bangz (catch his Bang
Theory album review) taking production duties. He does a
fantastic job in support, as Red & Precise stress the Corey
Red & Preciseimportance of maximizing every moment of life
and reflecting Christ with every decision in life. Bangz
also adds his production to "Lyrical Biblical". The
result? Another hit.
The hit producers keep coming as Maji from The Yuinon lends
his influence to "No Grey Lines" and "Propaganda". Lee
Jerkins of the RockSoul family handles production for
"What's Goin' On" along with "The Passion". "Da
Matrix Joint" appears on this project after its initial
appearance on the RockSoul Urban Compositions project, where
it was titled "Wild Style". Again, the partnership with
RockSoul and Red & Precise is as successful as peanut butter
and jelly —it just flows!
Now, we know that producers don't show up if artists don't
deliver. Well, believe all of the hype because Corey Red &
Precise bring nothing but heat to their debut. "Q & A" is
seemingly the sequel to Jadakiss' recent hit "Why?". The
difference here is that Red & Precise challenge listeners to
think of what one question they would possibly ask God if
given the opportunity. The questions posed are mind boggling
and the proposed answers are interesting.
"Gethsemane" begins with a classical feel, but soon morphs
into a bumpin' track featuring that infectious beat found
on the Mary J. Blige classic "Real Love". And lyrically,
this is hip hop's equal to The Passion of The Christ movie.
It's a descriptive piece that describes Christ's
experience in the Garden of Gethsemane and brings continued
life to this crucial moment in history.
Corey Red & PreciseOf all of the amazing songs on this
album, the most notable offering is the much needed "Prayer
4 Hip-Hop". On this one, Red & Precise go acappella and
move more into a spoken word format as they pray for hip hop
and mainstream giants, ranging from R. Kelly and DMX to
Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown. In their prayer, they speak of the
importance of properly reverencing Christ while admonishing
many not to run from God's call. It's strong, and is bound
to impact hip hop as we know it.
This project was worth all the wait and is worthy of all of
the hype. Holy hip hop's grittiest duo has brought the pain
and continues to make a significant impact. You can't run
away from this one. Resistance Iz Futile.
