a0986702346_10Chicago’s masterful writers’ guild of outstanding solo turn collective MCs Tomorrow Kings have just released an aesthetically unsettling album. Full of racially and culturally satirical humor, extremely clever rapping, and disparate fringe ideas strung together by the common thread of subtly and overtly causing the listener to critically engage the symphony of sounds and lyrics overtaking their ears, the Tomorrow Kings’ Nigger Rigged Time Machine is a definite contender for Album of the Year. Produced mostly by trendsetting Windy City beatmaker/MC Vyle of Nacrobats and Auburn fame (also on URB Magazine’s list of the Next 100 twice), the album takes on a melodic, dark and funky electronic sound that is also accompanied by the production efforts and successes of the likes of DJ Seanile, Cos (Push Beats), and A.M. Breakups (Reservoir Sounds/Cult Favorite along with Elucid). From front to back, Nigger Rigged Time Machine is a captivating listen from intro to exit due to its novelty in a market where audacious statements such as “Sell Coke to White Folks” and “Black Power in Hell” are not even rumored of, let alone wielded by the tongues of some of the most skilled MCs on the planet. In short, Nigger Rigged Time Machine is that music that holds the statements so potent that the most influential revolutionaries and freedom fighters would only say them off the mic.To three people. In Jest. Click on the “Dropkicks from Saturn” video above and get exposed to a taste of a classic album. The highly uncomfortable “Sell Coke to White Folks” video will be released soon. Stay tuned. You’ll probably hear about it from Barack Obama himself. NIGGER RIGGED TIME MACHINE OUT NOW!
