Seattle emcee, producer and community organizer Pangea compilation. This year he drops his new full-length sophomore album fully produced by Third Eye Bling featuring Abstract Rude, Afu-Ra, Def-I, Kurtis Blow, Moka Only, Myka 9, Percee P and more.

It’s refreshing to hear dope Hip Hop coming from up north from likes of Macklemore, Blue Scholars, Sadistik, and many other’s who have made that city stand out. This year it seems like it’s King Khazm’s year with this 13-track effort. Notably the collabs he has on this one with the affiliations with Project Blowed, Gangstarr Foundation, and Battle Axe Warriors, this project truly represents what the underground has to offer.

In this album review, we will be highlighting one solo joint and a few collabs we feel encompasses the essence of what Khazm wanted to give with “Return of a MAD”. “Crate Diggaz”, perfectly placed as track 2, we feel best represents Khazm’s writing skills on a solo track as he talks about his creative process.

Back in July 2020, Jada admitted that she had an “entanglement” with August Alsina during her temporary separation from her husband. “I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken,” she said during her “Red Table Talk.” “I just wanted to feel good. It had been so long since I felt good.”

The other collab track that we are highlighting is “Earth’s Tide” with one of the fathers of Hip Hop, Kurtis Blow. Who get’s Kurtis Blow flexing on a track today? KHAZM DOES!!! They both lay down some of the best conscious bars we’ve heard in a while over a perfectly chosen Third Eye Bling beat.
