This is, in my opinion, the best album to be released during the 21st century.

the last true hip hop classic to arrive.

10/10.

might do a full review later on.

I only have about 4 tracks from this album so far and it is fucking dope, this album is on my high priority list of albums im getting in the near future.

Props Ill for this because this is one of those albums that needs to be heard by some of these so called "hip hop heads" of the corp.

true, i dont think many people know it exists, but in comparison to the music that has come out recently which is labeled as "classic" this far exceeds it.

i was really surprised that i was able to find this at my record store, they even had about 3 copies of it. glad i picked one up.

good news, to an extent binary star and one.be.lo restored a bit of faith for me in hip hop.

the style is classic, but i dont get the impression that they are copying or imitating 90's hip hop. thats what makes it good to me, there are several artists out that are dope, but that are just imitating an era that has been. i dont feel binary star do that.

anyway, enjoy.

Finally had the chance to go through this album fully and well what can I say?....absolutely amazing.

Listening to this album really brought a smile to my face, the fact that both One.Be.Lo and Senim Silla really show a love for the music and the culture of hip hop really makes the album more of a satisfying experience.
The production is fantastic and raw and the fact that every track feels well implemented, not sounding like filler at all. Both mc's put a lot into this lyrically covering a good range of subjects.

I cant give it full marks now because I haven't had a chance to fully settle with it and judge whether it has good replayability but for now I give it a 9/10

I urge people to check this album if you haven't already, it really is a dope piece of hip hop that should be heard by all fans of hip hop.

One of the most slept on albums ever. 10/10.

One.be.lo's album s.o.n.o.g.r.a.m. is dope as well, although not on a level with the Binary Star album. Senim Silla just released his debut solo album, and so did Decompoze (who does most of the beats) but I aint got either yet (in the post).

Senim Silla - The Name, The Motto, The Outcome
Decompoze - Decompozition
