  • CunninLynguists - Southernunderground [2003]

    Never mind, here's another track-by-track one (excluding the intro and interludes).
    Southernunderground: Great opener, Deacon Kno and Mr SOS all kill it on here. One of only three non-Kno beats, the track is still great. Good stuff 5/5
    The South: Even better. First Kno beat on the album, and to be honest it blew me away the first time I heard it. The flute is just classic. This track was important because they went against the typical mold of southern rappers by talking about the region in a fun, lyrical and witty way. 5/5
    Love Aint (w/ Tonedeff): Seriously, Tonedeffs verse is one of the most fabulous verbal performances I can remember. Great sample, everyone comes nice on here. Captures the mood really well. 5/5
    Rain: A Kno solo song. Superb beat. Song about relationship problems. Although Kno is the weakest rapper of the trio, thats not saying much. Hes still passable and doesnt feel out of place on the album. 4/5
    Doin Alright: Deep song about life, taking it one day at a time. Through the perspective of potential situations where there is limited time left to live. SOS's verse is one of my favorite on the album, maybe ever. 5/5
    Old School: Fucking great. My favorite humourous CL song, and I love Fukinwichu and stuff. This is just hilarious, but still an extremely dope song; very well-executed. The sampling on the hook is great. 5/5
    Seasons (w/ Masta Ace): Great RJD2 beat. One of the best concept songs ever made. The 4 rappers each take a 'season' (era of hip hop) and talk about it largely without specific references to music. Great song. 5/5
    Last line of Seasons: "Its about time for the cycle to start over...how we gon start it?" Well, here we go.
    Nasty Filthy (w/ Supastition & Cashmere): Most people probably think Seasons is the best song on here, but Nasty Filthy is one of my five favourite songs ever made. Its just beautiful. The hook is perfect, and the way the beat changes for Deacons verse is just classic 5/5
    Falling Down: This is based on the movie of the same name. Its somewhat a parody of it, but its actually trying to capture the way people under so much stress can simply snap. In some way its a defense of those who get unconditional crucifixion in the media for their crimes when people dont really understand the circumstances. Anyway, Deacons verses are perfect. The beat on the second part is exactly what is needed to make the song work. The problem is the beats on the other 2 rappers' second verses are anticlimactic. This song is SO close to being classic, but it misses out. 4/5
    Sunrise-Sunset: Not a Kno beat, obviously. Its just not very good. Im not a fan of this song at all, although Deacon does his best to make it work. 3/5
    Appreciation Remix (w/ Cashmere): Great song. Cashmeres verse is great, even better than his verse on Nasty Filthy. Deacon's verse is equally captivating. Terrific. My only wish is that they brought the hook back in at the end, but thats minor. Another classic song. 5/5
    Dying Nation: Classic George W Bush sample lmfao. Great song as well, I would actually go so far as to say Kno has the best verse on here. Good political song, and the best anti-Bush song from his first term. 5/5
    War: Mostly an instrumental. Deacon comes really tight at the end though. 4/5

                My fave CL album, I feel it's more complete than their others, covers more brows if you will...........
                But if you listen then you know that shit's out of tune
                Cuz the function of our life is just to work and consume
