Pagan-Worship

Pretty Tony & Block Revelation
(1998, Recognize Records) 420 kbps

Weird silences scatter this record. At the end of the first song there is a 2 second clip of lord knows what. I suppose its the audio equivalent of spelling the album name and title track with different vowels, an also present mis-edit.

Don't know why I'm focused on the boring.... Pretty Tony is the TT Tucker of Memphis Get Buck music and though this is years after the "Get Buck" performance posted last week there are moments almost as good, like "Ten toes down", and even if his rhymes sometimes are so simple they're strange (I'm Pretty Tony and my music don't suck) he has a way of wrapping triangle raps around square beats. Tentoesdown Wheremfound Northmemphisbound andIneverclownaround Wheremfound Wheremfound Northmemphisbound Wheremfound Wheremfound Tentoesdown Wheremfound Wheremfound Northmemphisbound Wheremfound Wheremfound Tentoesdown Wheremfound Wheremfound Northmemphisbound Wheremfound Wheremfound Tentoesdown.. his left pan voice not sure where the right pan one is taking him, punctuating already strange lyrical math with half-spoke syllables.
