"In fact, exactly who or, for that matter, what Black Krishna is remains a mystery."

Black Krishna
Mixtape Studio Session Sampler

Every now and then an unknown rapper rolls up onto the scene with dreams of changing the game. Black Krishna is not that emcee. In fact, exactly who or, for that matter, what Black Krishna is remains a mystery. On the first track, a brown-skinned emcee named VIJ ("V to the I-J") announces his introduction over Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement." After that it’s all repetitious gangsta braggadocio and utter hilarity as VIJ spits hip-hop quotes like, "I walk tall and carry a big stick/my balls are so big when I jog I trip." Later, over Terror Squad's "Lean Back," he manufactures his own breed of consent in a vulgar anti-media tirade that includes the hilarious rhyme, "Y'all be choking on (Noam) Chomsky." The beats already belong to hit artists like 2Pac, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent, but at least VIJ offers listeners a little humour in an otherwise underwhelming release.

(Note: No excuses, but some context - I just discovered this googling "Black Krishna" today.)

(In January, I put 8 pre-mixed tracks on a CD with contact info in magic marker - the earliest generation "Mixtape Studio Session Sampler" bootleg. I slipped copy in with The Dope Poet Society CD we dropped off for review - so this is a nice surprise! Thanks Pierre, I look forward to lacing you with an enjoyable finished album, and I appreciate the early, colourful, and understandably mixed shine... for now! - Peace, BK :)
