Album Review: Mr. Al Pete, G3.0
With his sophomore album G3.0, Mr. Al Pete has certainly taken the genre of hip hop music to the next level. This is a one eighty (180) from the “Talk About It” LP, which came with hard beats, messages of relationship issues and sarcastic skits demonstrating the “Dirty South” music stereotype. The G3.0 consists of songs the listener can relate to, not the fantasy life of many women, guns, and death “The Rap Game” is so known for exaggerating about. This is music you can bob your head to, music you get a message out of, and most importantly music that initiates an uncontrollable grin that sneaks up on your face.
If I had to pick only one favorite, it would have to be “Love Me Now”. This man is a musical genius with the lyrical “flips” he lays down in the first 16 bars of this song. This is an eye opening realization to let those you care about know how important they are to you before it’s too late. The hook brings me back to a place in my life where I was sitting in my recently deceased grandmother’s kitchen on a steaming hot summer day getting a straighten comb softly swept through my hair. With eyes closed I sat there so still, listening to the record player spin. Man, where did you find that record at, my pop’s peach crates?
It’s about time we have a local artist that is coming correct and this gentleman happens to be the personification of hip hop! From the soulful melodies sweetly serenading in the background to the intriguing life lessons being spit in your ear, “Hands Down” this is an album you need to cop. Mr. Al Pete represents Duval County to the fullest in nature and rhyme with mention of favorite hot spots in his songs “Party Ain’t A Party”and “Thinking ‘Bout”. Let’s not forget the love he demonstrates in the “Outro” via shout outs to his vast list of supporters.
For all the local up-and-coming artists (might as well say it, established artists too) I wish you could “Walk a Day” in this man’s shoes. “This is It”; this is hip hop not that bubble gum or garbage gangsta wannabe rap we are used to hearing on the local radio station. I’m not mentioning any details, but you know what I am talking about! Let me give you one piece of advice; Duval artists, in order to compete on the standards Mr. Al Pete has just set, “You Need to Get up on Ya’ Sh*t Bruh”, for real!
While this CD brings you into a different realm from the first, G3.0 still gives you something to “Talk About”. I’m looking forward to the next project and seeing how a musical madman such as Mr. Al Pete can outdo himself…*Salutes*
