Paris - Sonic Jihad

By Eric K. Arnold, XLR8R

More than just a comeback album, Sonic Jihad serves notice that the hip-hop resistance to the right-wing coup is officially on. It's been a long time since P-Dog's gruff growls and Casio basslines last laced our ears, and they’re more relevant than ever in this time of FCC cop-outs, corrupt corporate agendas and unilateral government terrorism both home and abroad. This is not an album for the weak or the meek, and while politics are never far from Paris's thoughts, he speaks in a language everybody can understand--even your thugged-out homie Jo Jo, who might be surprised to find he can ride to "Field Nigga Boogie" as easily as Chingy's "Right Thurr.”
