The Best Beat-Tape Album – 9th Wonder – Valley of the Kings

It’s a rare occasion for me to like a whole album of anything and not skip, there has been a few occasions recently quite coincidentally where I heard entire albums without a single skip, struggle to put a tag on my favorite track. I am a follower of the other dimension of hip-hop, beats & instrumentals.┬áMy ears are very careful to detect good beats to just downright awful, there are many beats that don’t make sense or appeal to the common modern day “hip-hop” listener with frequent chops of cuss words and other expletives. 9th Wonder completely nailed this album down in my opinion to be one of the best beat-tapes there is. The chops of vintage vinyls and other beautiful mix-ups just give each beat a beautiful blend and soulful touch to it.

No doubt should you be head bopping to this while you get your work done…
