Jus Ra comes to us from Flint, Michigan. Member of The Fraternity Music Group. Layers on layers on layers. “Blood Sacrifice” seems to me to be this cats Magnum Opus, his life work. The production value of this album is nigh untouchable. His bars, give him the right to use the name of the Sun God, Ra. The content though. That is the most important aspect of this project. There is a message hidden here, but like the Bible, it is for those with the eyes to see and the ears to hear. Most of it seems to be a message to himself, on the first listen. Listen to it again. It will talk to you.
This is probably the most technically advanced album I have had the pleasure of reviewing, to this date. The level of writing skill is unparalleled by mainstream hip-hop, yet consistent with everything else I have heard come from the vaults of The Fraternity. Double entendres, metaphors, word play, symbolism. This album should go down in the history books of rap as one of the best.
Tracks like Foreground Music are easy to relate to. He speaks directly from his soul and skips his heart. The Pairing of T.I.C. and T.O.C. give an insight to an educated mind. This album is highly recommended.
5 Stars. Go get this album.
