review: Five Deez – Kommunicator

Five Deez – Kommunicator
Rapster Records

Kommunicator is one of those rare rap records where adherence to true school hip-hop and defiance of rap conventions meld successfully. Categorists may have trouble where to place the LP, in their dance, lounge, rap, or electronica sections. Producer Fat Jon layers trippy synthetics and swooning female vocals over headknod-ic beats, and the Five Deez MCs flow poetically, mixing in styles from all of rap, from Native Tongue simmer to Dirty South chants. Though it is a thoroughly accessible CD, I doubt heads will be bumping it in the back of their Escalades. It’s definitely an experience to be savored with headphones on, or sitting about in a cloud of smoke.
