The Best Rap Album of September 2011 - Lost Scriptures by Tha Connection

After listening to more than 1700 songs I came to the conclusion that there were several very good rap albums released in September 2011 and only several unfortunately.

On those very good albums the production was extremely tight, the music well thought out with deft rhyming skills by the rappers. The problem was there was nothing new, different, particularly artistic or clever.

At least that's what I thought until I got my hands on a late entry which became this month's choice of best rap album. 

Hailing from Hempstead Long Island and comprised of the rappers Hus Tha Kingpin and SmooVth Dude the rap duo called Tha Connection released their album titled Lost Scriptures and it is my selection for Best Rap Album of September 2011.

It is very easy to tell that Tha Connection was weened on hip hop's jazzy age when groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, and Organized Konfusion ruled the streets and the clubs when you listen to Lost Scriptures but the group isn't stuck in the 90's as their rhymes attest. These cats keep stride for stride lyrically with current groups like MellowHype, Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt but instead of random scratches, clicks and beeps passing for music that those groups have embraced Tha Connection is well at home with Post Bop as the musical foundation holding up the walls of some good old boom bap.

I loved this refreshing album and you may not but you'll be okay. The Best Rap Album of September 2011 is Lost Scriptures by Tha Connection.
Other September Releases I Dig  Phonte, Charity Starts at Home  9th Wonder,  The Wonder Years  Strange Fruit Project, A Dreamer's Journey Brenk, Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)
