Georgiavania and Funcrusher Plus

January 5, 2010

Georgiavania, the debut album by Willie Isz, came out in April of 2009. Willie Isz is a duo consisting of Khujo Mob, of Goodie Mob fame, and Jneiro Jarel. I really like this disc because it takes hip-hop into new directions while remaining grounded in a sort of Dirty South aesthetic. This innovative yet Real quality is what puts Georgiavania in the same category as Company Flow’s classic underground 1997 release, Funcrusher Plus. Funcrusher Plus, like Georgiavania, has the uncanny ability to transcend Earthly limitations and shoot straight into space while maintaining strong New York B-boy roots.

Check out the cover art and a sample track from both albums respectively.

If you like what you hear, go cop the albums or download them elsewhere cuz this ain’t that kind of blog, foo!
