Anyone familiar with the renowned LA Symphony will immediately know Joey The Jerk and this album's producers, CookBook and Flynn. Joey brings what he describes as a fresh new sound, while staying true to his old skool hip-hop roots. This album is more like a project - an epic journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop, with production that is as creative as Joey The Jerk is talented. Picking out standout tracks is tricky when the consistency is this high. With a hint of the old skool breaks and the influences of Naughty By Nature, "King Without A Crown" is a classic underground nod to Christ the King. With a host of gifted guest MCs, accapella and semi-accapella pieces and ending with the electronica-inspired fun of "MacBook Of Raps" and excellent wordplay, this is Joey The Jerk back on form and on fire.
