USA – An unhurried storyteller, Hamza Abo$$ combines together old school hip-hop with a contemporary sense of narration. Daringly chopped samples further add to the more pensive and reflective facets of the album seeing as they build off the projects everpresent street-conscious sensibilities.
Lyricism within Hamza Abo$$’s work parades an unprecedented mixture of scintillating wit and ruminative humor that is most comparable to that of legends like Biggie Smalls and Jay Z. The juxtaposing of those two elements results in something that projects both substance and elegance. Madvillian’s uncanny crate-digging sampling immediately comes to mind given the strong elements of funk, jazz, and doo-wop incorporated throughout this long playing record.
Everything here works on behalf of the ingenious bohemian seeing as he controls the mic with an adroitness. Not quite rap and not quite singing, his is a deliberate pacing that draws its strength from a most elaborate of introspections. Contrary to his Westcoast upbringing, the album remains primarily faithful to the audacious stylings of Eastcoast hip Hop, the kind I grew up with and adored. Something about the compositional balance and the way that the songs were woven together, grants this project an undeniable meritorious timelessness.
All-in-all, every song on this project exudes some mode of substance, talent, and just overall brilliance. “Im Not Perfect” by Hamza Abo$$ is now available on all major streaming platforms including Spotify, YouTube, and Soundcloud. So, be sure to check out this brilliant and criminally underrated artist.
