PLANET ASIA – VELOUR PORTRAITS EP Review

By SUNEZ #SkillastratorLO   The #PowerWrite

The joyous imprisonment here,

away from slatterns that left patterns larger than the Vattern,

Reloaded Qi, a place of enlightenment.

Here,

where all the labels of oppression reverse

into weapons of illstruction in rewind.

Instruct them,

ill all on how you be,

histories in advance barred,

giggle at mistakes–the babies that become lessons.

Here…

In this Boom Bap filled booth.

The more the God Planet Asia lets us know he gives no fucks, the more his words scatter like photons finagled into lasers.  A stream of conscious with the probabilities of illness so high that no one knows the location of the next recording.  Detecting Velour Portraits we listen to an extremely brief flash of brilliance in complex layering. All produced by Sonny Vintage, the twanged electric guitar through distant cymbal clashes and high treble drum smacks on “The Scientific Era” let PA pierce verbals through, “Win the G/battle rap energy/tabernacle Tai Chi master/riddles is Middle East/decoded Matrix,the truth is hard to swallow…” Then on the title track, a more lovely guitar lick flips, thick enough it has me going through ole Bolero crates of the 60’s, Asia verses, “Velour potraits of a syllable scientist/creative director, out of all tactics/they fell for the camouflage jackets/I’m the best, why the fuck you talking about practice?!”

The keyboard melody, guitar plucks and bass thumping on “Get Money” rolls PA into a 1, 2 bounce of non-sequiturs silkiness, “…yellow tape honor roll/Shadow clan/inner Earth packing caravan/carry-on bags, avalanche/awaken the King/live on the side of the ring…”  Interspersed with exotic interludes as “Investments,” further solidifying the real metaphor that Planet Asia been the second coming of Jim Kelly striding through emphatically righteous.  Just over 15 minutes, duos as good as “Made It” with Hus Kingpin & Rozewood all soul glowing as three stylistics rich out the gutter via abstract poetics reveal the God Planet Asia records and realizes whenever he wants. Whenever we need it now.  It continues to be that way.

The organization of these principles around a counterculture, an expressive arts of creation that uplifts the ideas and thoughts of an oppressed people, is why I’m an honored builder amongst legends, knighted by heroes of Medina (Rakim Supreme Shabazz Allah/Rudy Lo, Thirstin Howl the 3rd, Bonz Malone) to further create in my element as a Hip Hop Writer of #ArtOnArt & #ScienceOnMusic. So the world may find love that locks in with the action of loyalty though they may never find another writer with my kind of grammar…
