WTF: Soulchef – Remember When

I wasn’t familiar with Soulchef before this week, nor is he an Asian American, but his album Remember When is this Week’s Thursday Freebie on a-Tunes. Why? Well first of all, Vox Merger & Hydroponikz are among the list of MC’s featured on the album and secondly, this is just a plain sick collection of tracks. After hearing the songs and then reading the following description, I knew I would love this release… and it doesn’t disappoint.

Remember When Hip Hop was this? Remember When Hip Hop was that? At a time where the future of Hip Hop is regularly questioned, and the constant debate about what’s “real” is still a hot topic; it’s often times hard to see beyond the obvious. When the same songs from the 70s and 80s were not only remixed in the 90s, but re-remixed again in the 2000s. When live instruments have been replaced with repetitive sounds. SoulChef’s release “Remember When…” takes a look back at the yesteryear of hip hop. His soulfully jazzy approach at production is mixed with live instruments and complimented by a talented line-up of artists who help paint his picture. This 10 track album is a nostalgic look at the fundamental Hip Hop we all originally fell in love with.

I haven’t heard all the tracks yet, but both Vox Merger & Hydro kilt their respective joints. If you’re a Hip-Hop head on any level, I think you’ll appreciate this one. Props to all the artists involved and to Soulchef for the awesome production.

  1. Thanks for reviewing the album. Vox Merger and Hydroponiks tracks are dope! Support Asian hiphop. I am unknown suspect and I have tracks 7 and 10 on the album and I am a Korean MC! That makes 3 Asian MCs on this album. Download this free album!
