Lethal Dialect - LD50 ( Album Sampler)

Dublin rapper Lethal Dialect serves up this offering of intelligent rhymes and top notch production that stays true to early to mid 90's hiphop, no gimmicks just rawness.
The album opens with a haunting piano loop and some excerts of classic hiphop from Wu Tang and Big L among others and this sets the scene aswell as showing what LD's influences are before the song The Beginning of The End kicks in and he proceeds to drop knowledge over the downtempo beat.
Next up is Metamorphose and i found this to be a highlight because some of the rhyme patterns and schemes are exceptional.
With only one feature from the impressive Tommy Hand and the majority of production handled by G.I. this gives the project an extremely cohesive feel.

Jonnyboy provides two beats and these are also top quality especially Far From The End.
In short if youve ever heard the term "irish hiphop" and been turned off dont let it make you miss this as  you need this in your life.
