Album: ScienZe - Hall Pass (2010)

It's becoming rarer and rarer that you come across a new hip hop artist that really respects the roots of hip hop and really shows it throw their music, but ScienZe does just that and he does it well for all 16 tracks. He dropped a free mixtape "Hall Pass" late last year that seems largely slept on by the hip hop community. Wake up people. 

Take the video and song "History (Play By Play)" below as an example of how MCing should be done; painting the visual narrative, use of creative wordplay, and evoking emotions with a personal message. This really brings about a potent feeling of nostalgia for the birth of hip hop. His flow is honest and seemingly effortless. The beat is driving and the perfect blend of sounds. Been on repeat all day and hope it does for you what it does for me.
