Well…it looks like TrendyInk isn’t out of the danger zone yet… It seems that someone out there doesn’t like funny stuff, reggae, hip-hop, movies, and art because they keep bringing the site down. I posted yesterday with the Panacea review and then left to visit my great-aunt, who is on hospice. When I got home, the site was down again. It took some doin, but I finally fixed the new issue and we’re back. Let’s hope it stays that way.
*Big thanks to all my good friends out there that sent emails and were genuinely concerned.
This isn’t the timeliest of reviews, but nevertheless, as I always say, there’s plenty of peeps out there that don’t have access to absolutely everything that drops, so here we go.
For those that don’t know who Panacea is, where you been foo?! They were responsible for dropping one of the coolest, chilled out, enjoyable hip-hop albums that was released for the year 2007 called ‘The Scenic Route’. I recommend that you grab that one and get familiar with these cats through that album, then peep their older stuff…then move forward to this one. This album is definitely nice, but by no means ‘their best’ and comes in second or third to some of their previous efforts. Some tracks like ‘Vandalism’ really make this album rebumpable. Yes, rebumpable is a word…a hip-hop word meaning worth listening to more than once. Booyow! You just learned something.
For one thing, the album art is dope. If you skipped past it and went right to the meat of this review, take a look back upward and take that shizzle in. It’s good to see some traditional art on albums nowadays…instead of that uber-popular trend of mashing a bunch of shapes of the same color together and layering, layering, layering. *It can look very cool, but traditional is still nice.
Anyway, this album is very spacey and laid back. If you are into mellow rhymes over ethereal beats, this one is for you. This is some perfect bump in the background while you chill on the patio and zone out on your local flora. Burn some incense while you’re out there too….I recommend ‘Butt Naked’ from your local incense creator (none of that mass produced cheese).

I just watched dudes latest stand up called ‘Crooked Finder’ the other night. It was pretty good, but this one part was friggin dope. Some funny ass shizzle if you ax me.
Anybody down to try this in a real bar? Let me know so I can bring the video equipment and document it…hehehe.
Brother’s don’t shake hands brother’s throw stuff at each other. HAHA
