They go by the monikers “Neo” and “Morpheus.” Ironically, NewWorld is not new to the rap game. Que Day and Traore have been working together for a long time. This is them, reborn, eyes wide open. Trying to open your eyes. This is a new feel for both of them.
I’m not going to do a track by track break down here. There is too much to talk about. This is one of those “You just had to be there” stories. It’s a book you have to read yourself. Their writing technicalities are on point. The beat selection is outstanding. Sampling is well placed. This album is clearly their heart and soul.
As far as the content goes, this album is an expression of who they are as people. Their thoughts and feelings are clearly stated. Tracks like “Reality Show” and “Rise Up” are the meat of the album.
Honorable mention goes to Mind Expansion and Rise Up. Check back tomorrow for a Video Spotlight on “Reality Show.”
