Servants in Heaven, Kings in Hell [Parental Advisory]
On their fifth full-length release, SERVANTS IN HEAVEN, KINGS IN HELL, Philly underground vets Jedi Mind Tricks return with more of the trademark horror-core aggression they've honed to perfection in their four previous albums. Over Stoupe's theatrical beat landscapes, the crew rolls out an onslaught of violent rhymes and inventive blood-letting. But it's not just mindless cartoon violence here: Vinnie Paz's verses paint cinematic pictures of war, oppression, and exploitation that have a chilling resonance in the reality of the early 2000s. Like-minded hardcore MCs Ill Bill, Sean Price, Block McCloud, Chief Kamachi, and R.A. the Rugged Man show up for the fun.
