Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic
our score: 3.0 out of 5.0
De La Soul
has always remained in one spot, at the forefront of hip-hop.
At one time considered 'cutting edge,' they are now riding along
with, however not behind, the hip-hop industry. Their latest offering,
Art Official Intelligence, shows De La's ability to change
with the times, fitting right at home with current hip-hop flavors.
the entire album, De La doesn't miss a beat, their rhyming finesse
is always clean cut. As in the past, AOI is an album everyone
can relate to. It's down to earth and as real as it gets, that's
one thing that De La hasn't changed. Some tracks, like
"All Good," and, "The Art of Getting Jumped,"
stand out from the rest of the album as having more of a party
flavor. But beneath the playful beats the message is the same.
doesn't pack any surprises, it doesn't dissappoint either. From
start to finish it's a solid hip-hop album that demonstrates De
La Soul will keep bringing something fresh to hip-hop.
