We are staying in Cali for this week's upload with J The Sarge's "Head Music" from 2006.
J The Sarge is probably best known for being a part of the Magic Heart Genies and running One Wise Studios. He's dabbled in lots of styles (perhaps most notably Dancehall fusion) but I think the early "Head Music" might be his best work to date.
Sarge has a very Bay sound when it comes to both his rapping and production on here. The delivery styles are very exaggerated and Sarge plays around with multiple flows throughout the album. The content is kept pretty lighthearted for the most part. The instrumentation is thick and laid back at times and frantic and glitchy at times. Various guests stop by as well including Megabusive, Dave Dub, Z-Man, and Franco.
The end result is a pretty solid album front to back. I really would be interested to hear what a follow up to this project would sound like in 2019. Check it out below!
