Lets put it this way, I always knew I’d put a CD Recommendation section on the website and this is the FIRST CD that came to mind to recommend. Killa Kela, one of the best beat boxers in the world hailing from the U.K. Most people think that with a beat boxer’s CD that it will be boring to listen to, nothing but a man and a mic, but you’re wrong – on this album he incorporates all members of Spit Kingdom, violinist, the works! I remember hearing a radio interview and Pharell from The Neptunes recommended this CD in the middle of an interview that was supposed to promote his own CD! Another great thing about this CD is the thought process, each song flows into the next one – each song has a unique concept and theme! The whole CD is told like a story from beginning to END.
Most people who I’ve shown this album to and their first reaction is "Is this Justin Timberlake?" (That’s right! The beat boxer can sing, makes sense since he can make any sound he wants with his mouth…correct?) "Is this a secret song off Future Sex Sounds?" I understand where they are coming from, unique thick production singing, catchy chorus’, with many featured rappers… but I’m going to go ahead and say it… Killa Kela’s album came out in early 2005… JT’s album came out mid 2006… Do the math… yeah you heard me! I said it!
This CD is for all, it definitely keeps loyal to the Hip Hop Fans, but it showed that an underground Hip Hop musician can bring it to the next level. He paved the way and broke down barriers, unfortunately I think the world didn’t acknowledge what he was doing until it was too late.
Don’t sleep!! There’s a reason why its the first CD I’ll recommend, and there’s a reason why its the only CD to remain on my Ipod since the first day I bought it.
