Hailing from the multi-member rap group Tunnelrats comes the debut album from a man otherwise known as Propaganda. Propaganda is one of the better emcees to come out of Tunnelrats and go solo, with his clever raps flowing together to make a one-of-a-kind sound. His delivery is spectacular, and he gets points across in his own way. Propaganda has got the signature Tunnelrats sound down pat, for example, "We Are" has a 40 second intro of the actual beat used for the song, before raps are laid down, which is a common thing for the Tunnelrat family. This isn't bad, but if you're an impatient person, and you want the lyrics right away, this style isn't for you.
The second track on his debut album, Out Of Knowhere, "Keep It Live," really sets the mood for the project. Using the piano in the back of the beat, and throwing a little electric guitar in the chorus, really makes for an enjoyable track. "My Life, My Music" has a Latin flavor, which works well, with the entire chorus spoken in Spanish. Macho of New Breed keeps the Tunnelrat flavor alive even more, with his spit-fire raps, thrown in right where they can work.
"Don't Let Us Lose It" talks about Propaganda wanting the rap game not to be lost in the shuffle of mainstream and Christian. He reminds us that hip hop was made to display skill, and how well you can rap. The track loosely reminds me of newcomer Manafest, with his track off his debut album Epiphany, "Skills," sans the rock elements.
Other notable tracks include "You Ain't Ready" and "Keep On Singin," the latter of which includes Dax of LPG, has a wonderful light singing chorus. The more you listen, the more you want to sing right along.
Overall, this is a noteworthy addition to the Tunnelrat line of rap and hip hop music. One thing that is always evident with any of the Tunnelrats' music is their blatant regard for Christ. No matter what you listen to by them, God is always very much a factor, which is good enough for me.- Review date: 9/16/05, written by Justin Mabee
