THNK.AGN - THE THOUGHT X LV.AGN














It's hard to condense thoughts about the Thought into one thought but I'll try. He recently dropped Thnk.Agn produced by Lv.Agn which is about as meaty of a work from him as I have yet to hear. He can do a lot of things very well - rap, sing, write songs, spit bars, get deep, record, engineer - and he's one of those nerds who is doing word games no one even asked for but if you're a certain kind of OCD you'll appreciate it like the double-meaning in the melodic and provocative song "thought the anarchist." I am the kind of person this content is for if I'm not being clear. His features have a great selection of Pomona area luminaries like J Soulstice and PsychoSloth.

To be honest his whole discog is worth peeping but he really hits you physically, mentally and emotionally with this album. He effortlessly floats between rap, working class life, the I.E., politics and personal demons and progression as topics in all of his work and this record represents for me a new plateau in his powers and declarations of self to the word. And lotsa the songs still bang just as songs, despite and in tandem with all the depth; it's rap-jazz that is great just as music but has much to analyze if you care to delve farther in to The Thought's actually very over-active mental world (takes one to know one). Don't sleep.
