A.S.H.E.S The Chosen Flies Through An Urgent Hip Hop Triumph on ID, Ego, Superego
A.S.H.E.S The Chosen comes through with rhymes that matter, paint a picture, and beats that are connective tissue to the body of “ID, Ego, Superego”, and it’s expertly done. Every track has been carefully chosen, words presented as more than just rhymes, and something that hits you right in your mind’s eye. At times it’s bouncing, others it’s raw, but overall the words are put together to show you a larger picture, and it most certainly comes through. It’s with the tracks like “Never Let ‘Em Break You down”, “Art of Survival”, and “No Apologies”, that A.S.H.E.S The Chosen really shines, even though the rest of the record is super as well.
At the end of the day, with hip hop, it’s either hit or miss. This is one of the hits, and it comes through with a certain expertise that you don’t always get from a lot of rappers. There’s so many little things here in the beats, the way the rhymes are put together, and the entire package as a whole. There’s a lot of imagery painted here, stories, emotions, and introspection that makes this a triumph of artistry, not just music. You owe it to yourself to catch up with A.S.H.E.S The Chosen, because this won’t stay underground for long. It’s that good of a recording, and I recommend it.
