The Best Rap Album of March 2012 - Self Sacrifice by Mello Music Group

Rap music is really beginning to pick up steam now. March saw the release of some very solid albums.

Ja Rule's album Pil 2 was surprisingly good and the group People Under The Stairs dropped Highlighter which was a mixed bag but very good effort from the West coast.

Comprised of some of the best underground rappers you most likely have never heard of the new crew Mello Music Group produced in my opinion best best rap album of March.

The album titled Self Sacrifice, for reasons unbeknownst to me, is a daring adventure lead by rapper/producer Oddisee who has a number of solo albums and is a member of the Washington D.C. rap group Diamond District.

Oddisee used some of his old gang for this album but he also brought in the avant-garde singer Georgia Anne Muldrow, who I am certain comes from another planet and is here to share her intergalactic funk and soul.

Speaking of soul music, Oddisee does not skimp on the soul roots of hip hop music for this album. Some of the tracks are beautifully produced and could easily be the soundtrack for the latest versions of The Mack or Shaft.

So there you have it, The Best Rap Album of March 2012 - Self Sacrifice by Mello Music Group.

  1. This is new and crisp sounding it reminds me of a throw-back. It has that old-school vibe! The lyrics work. Hot Pick!
