Abstract Mindstate- Nostalgia

January 27th, 2006

Out on 4 The Soul Reciprocity, ‘Nostalgia’ is a solid but slightly generic track by the US based male/female rap duo of Ice Gre and Eboney Poetress The Hellcat, featuring Common. Although Common’s contribution is the best thing about the release, it doesn’t justify spending too much listening time here. ‘Missin U’ is of the slightly cliched ‘We miss real hiphop’ mentality but is a far stronger effort, with some pleasant female vocals and a chilled vibe. The problem here is the female rhyming, which in a world of Lauryn Hill’s and Jean Grae’s, fails to have any lasting effect. This isn’t wack, nor is it amazing. It’s alright none the less.
