This album is a first production by Richmond, VA producer Just Plain Ant in which he showcases many young & creative local artist. Seemingly old-fashioned at heart, with carefully drafted lyrics and classic beats, the album offers what the main stream bling-infested, sex-oriented money driven hip-hop scene is missing: fresh, thought-provoking & innovative release.
“Fly” features artists like Rasul The Nobody, Brad Oblivion, EENJ, Joey Ripps, Stephany Alva and others.
The album is compiled of 14 original tracks and spanns over a total run-time of 57:07 minutes.
The deep messages coming from the tracks of the album are circling around Politics, Terrorism, Philosophy, and Hardships of Life.
Being a follower of the hip-hop genre for quite sometime now, and seeing the legacy it follows and its birth, Just Plain Ant really offers up a treat for old-school Hip-Hop lovers and he whips it up in the most classic manner by focusing on issues rather than portraying a larger than life illusion-ed lifestyle of rappers.
I advice listeners to hear the track “Revolution” and feel the in-depth work put into recreating the entire hardships and suffering people faced with the 9/11 attacks and how the lives of a thousand Americans was never the same again. What I perceived was that the album is compiled with quite a few hard-hitting tracks and they all drift in a certain flow with subtle beats and a message reaching out in the best possible lyrical way.
