Hitotsu is an exceptional album featuring nine hip hop tracks backed by catchy beats and tight, well delivered lyrics. K.I.C.E. rhymes in Japanese and the hip hop music bares an Asian influence. This gives the music a unique, refreshing vibe that is appreciated. The best track featured on the album is Seidoh featuring DJ Herb. The beat is exciting and intensely melodic. The lyrics are explosive and powerful. This is a sure shot hit. The rest of the songs featured on the album are great tracks that deserve some undivided listening attention. There are no bad songs featured on the album.
The lyrics are delivered via intense flow and vocalization. K.I.C.E. drops in Japanese; however, even though probably not understood by most non-Japanese speaking audiences, the music is still felt and considered tight. Music is universal and there are many non-English speaking fans that love North American hip hop music, even though the lyrics may not be understood.
This is one of K.I.C.E.’s best releases and fans need to check it out.
