Album Review: M1 dead prez and Bonnot- Between Me and the World
M1 deadprez and Bonnot, A fresh new trans-Atlantic collaboration Between Me and the World sees the joining of two great forces in conscious hip hop. With M1 of Dead Prez hooking up with Italian producer and Assalti Frontali member Bonnot. The result is a politically charged and intensely lyrical album. A project that continues the work of Dead Prez in spreading stories and messages through music.
Opening with Number one with a bullet M1 raps “I’m about to spit some real shit” over Bonnot’s Boyz-N-The-Hood sample setting the tone for the heavily political lyrics to come. On Real OG to exposing the corruption of the tobacco industry on Tobacco Inc.
Coupling this intense lyricism with Bonnot’s atmospheric beats provides an album with real fire across its length. A particular stand out example being Killing It which fully lives up to it’s name. With raging hooks from Noble Society’s Jahdan Blakkamoore linking the bars together.
