This gem of a release was originally issued in 2003 although there is a new enhanced version featuring a "Battle Star Galactic" music video. Anyone who's heard the tracks "Travelling Circus" and "My Way" will know that this is fresh, gutsy hip-hop with hand claps, shakers and drums kicking up raw rhythms over which the rapper expounds his powerful spiritual messages. There are plenty of guest spots here with Braille of Lightheaded, Kaitlyn Cassels of Sackcloth Fashion and ragamuffin king Sherwin Gardner all adding powerful contributions to the mix. One of the best hip-hop releases of recent times.
