Most fans label the artists featured on this album as “Christian Hip Hop Artists“, but their music is still fresh, raw, sharp, and intense as the rest of the hip hop music fans world wide dig. Nothing less than easily appeasing fan classics. The artists prefer to rhyme towards the positive side of the spectrum, still as fresh as ever, and that only makes their music stronger. These artists don’t rhyme with blingism-bugged out, ice ice baby type lyrics, but rather real conceptual, deep, meaningful rhymes. Deep Space 5 is an album saying something, as oppose to an album full of artists saying absolutely nothing. Sev Statik, Stu Dent, Mars Ill, and Playdough have a well known extreme natural talent for dropping deep rhymes, that purely entertain fans, and keep them interested, with their ears glued to the speakers. Sev Statik is unbelievably talented, and any fan who’s listened to his music would agree he’s reaching deep, and well deserving of extreme respect, and recognition. The other lessor known artists on the album do a great job as well, contributing positively to the album’s overall success.
The production through-out this album is equally as masterful as the rhymes themselves. A brightly-perfect harmony not to be dimmed by the darkest night or the deepest void of realism in today’s urban music industry where artists frequently make reference to riches and super star-dumb. Quality, excitingly fresh releases is a common trend through-out the majority of Uprok Releases. Packing more flavor than aged pickled pigs feet, Deep Space 5 delivers.
Highlight track, the title joint “A Night We Called It A Day“, which comes off incredible in cuts, rhymes, and production. Easily one of the best tracks featured on the album, and a sure shot fan favorite. The rhymes keep coming strong, felt deep, like the calmly powerful beat penetrating even the most resistant fan. Other notable tracks include “Winter In Manhattan”, “This Curse I Bear”, and “Murder Creek” which all get fans widely open.
Strong points include the steady stream of incredible beats & rhymes that entertain fans, and not only hold their undivided attention, but command it with attitude. The cover art, & presentation of the album is also well pieced together, including a front jacket booklet introducing the artists to fans.
A classic album to keep in rotation, packed with conceptual rhymes, witty punchlines, superb vocal, and production dynamics.
