Channeling the energy of forward-thinking hip-hop groups like Digable Planets, Arrested Development and the Fugees, Sol Uprising is a bright light in today's music scene. Group members Stacy Epps and Lil Sci get their message across as a tag team: Stacy's soulful singsong melodies blend with Sci's raw rap. Stacy's vocals have graced albums by Prophetix and MF Doom and albums from the Scienz of Life crew. Hot beats and smart lyrics appear on tracks like the excellent "They Don't Know," "We Ourself and Us" and "Introspect (Do My Thang)." A future classic and must-have album for any serious hip-hop fan.
