The Grimy Awards (2LP+DVD)
Deluxe LP/DVD Edition includes bonus DVD and digital download code. 2013 release from the New York rapper and producer, best known for his work with Non Phixion and La Coka Nostra. Tangential and biographic, the album sees Bill addressing the formative touchstones of his life, offering "what-ifs" and describing historical events, many gruesome, that shaped the suspicious, futurist, political, analytical persona he's been putting on wax for the better part of three decades. Here he effortlessly enlists a reverent squad of super-notable collaborators, who not only sign their approval but round out a grand Boom-Bap vision sonically and thematically. Featuring A-Track, H.R., Shabazz the Disciple, Lil Fame, El-P, Jedi Mind Tricks and others.
