LISTEN: Praverb - Everything Is Broken (Prod. by Dirty Treats)
This is one of the best independent Hip Hop tracks of the year. Matter of fact this may be one of my favorite tracks of the year overall. Praverb flows of a jazzy piano groove produced by Dirty Treats that would fit right in on any good 1994 NYC album, or the first volume of Jazzmatazzx. Praverb addresses not only what he thinks is wrong in Hip Hop, but also the state of society righ now with lines like too much religion/not enough faith. There's also some questionable/confusing lines like too many immigrants, not enough blacks and the mysterious too much Kanye/not enough Jazz.
