With Graphic Melee And Words Of Phrase
With his sixth solo album, Two-Headed Monster, underground hip-hop veteran and critically-acclaimed MC Blueprint pays tribute to the proud tradition of MC’s who have been equally effective behind-the-boards. From its dusty drum breaks and surgically chopped samples, to its hard-hitting rhymes, Two-Headed Monster proves that Blueprint’s name is among the best producers to touch the mic in modern hip-hop. Unlike his previous solo albums, which focused in on his singular lyrical prowess, Two-Headed Monster features an all-star cast that includes Slug of Atmosphere, Wordsworth, Aceyalone, Supastition, Mr. Lif, and Has Lo – cementing Blueprint’s status as a monster on both the beats and the rhymes.
