|Review:||Rising out of San Diego comes this multi-faceted and
ambitious crew, who present the Gospel drenched in hip-hop
As reflected in their name, the 12-member crew takes on the
figurative mantle of sackcloth,Sackcloth Fashion CD inspired
by Old Testament references in which ashes and sackcloth
were worn by those in mourning, to outwardly demonstrate to
God and to man their inward state. Sackcloth Fashion takes
this expression of humility and applies it to the condition
of their collective hearts (“Rend your heart, not your
garments…Joel 2:12,13), declaring themselves to be in
mourning for the lost (i.e. those without Jesus Christ).
They state that the bizarre title of the album, Something
For Everyone To Hate, was chosen to humbly suggest that,
with the buffet of hip-hop sounds offered on the disc, not
all tracks will appeal to everyone.
Indeed, the diversity on the 16-track project (all within
the realm of hip-hop) is evident. East coast, West coast,
freestyle and more, this crew is not one-dimensional in
skills. Standouts are the fast-paced “Liquid Demon”, which
is written from the perspective of alcohol, and “Verbal
Eyes”, which features guest EmCee Playdough (from
Illharmonics) on an East coast vibe. “Pulling A Fast One”
takes itself literally, with rhyme by Mista Tru and
Absolute1 at a rate of 115 beats per minute (BPM) throughout
the entire cut.
Although Sackcloth Fashion members Mista Tru, Sir Rocdomz
and BassSickLee are evident through much of the album, guest
artists are rife, including Grapetree artist E-Roc on
“Rising Sons”, and Dirt on “Subconsciously” and “It’s Just
Me”. The Sackcloth Fashion crewThe track titled “The Guest
List” tosses in cameos from underground holy hip-hop
luminaries such as Btwice, Senaj, Miss Moses, The
Prophetics, Ahmad and more. And word is that that when the
album is later released to the mainstream market, the cut
will be remixed to include an appearance from Tonéx.
Be warned, however. This is not an album for those who like
a little hip-hop flava mixed into their ‘rhythm ‘n praise’
Gospel diet. No, this is for those who desire a full hip-hop
immersion; pure and unadultered Gospel presented as a
hip-hop feast all the way to the last morsel.
If that whets your appetite, then with fresh and innovative
rhymes and a grab-bag of beats to boot, you won’t go wrong
with Sackcloth Fashion.
