About this item
"II: The Next Wave" is the long-awaited second album from hip-hop production supergroup Quakers.
Featuring over 25 MCs on over 30 tracks across 2 LPs, it's a highly accomplished journey into the more concious and musical territories of rhyme and beat. It contains explosive, up-to-date commentaries on subjects such as American politics, Black identiy, gun laws, disproportionate wealth and global disengagement with minorities.
There's a tense & abrasive mood to the entire album, as if a demoltion ram is about to smash through a brick wall. It's fiercly aligns itself with Run The Jewels & Clipping and is terrifyingly arresting with its urgent aggression.
Featured MCs include Sampa the Great, Koreatown Oddity, Jonwayne, Guilty Simpson, Grandmilly, Jeremiah Jae, & more.
Barry says: A superb juxtaposition of the more upbeat instrumentals from the hip-hop of yesteryear and the darker, more avant-garde producers of today. The Next Wave feels as progressive and as varied as anything i've heard for a long time. Warmingly innovative but without sacrificing latent musicality and GROOVE. Amazing.
