商品説明

Eastern Conference/Def Jux labelmates Cage and Camu Tao team up for this incisively outlandish concept album that uses the relatively obscure 1981 Sylvester Stallone/Billy Dee Williams' film Nighthawks as its' driving premise. Cage and Tao twist the plot lines of the film to create a darkly humorous album that exposes New York as a city bent on corruption, fundamentally at the law enforcement level. While the notion of NYC as the ultimate in American capitalism to its gaudy and morally deleterious extreme is not novel, the two underground MCs pull it off with equal doses of crime-core and tongue-in-cheek social satire.

The German-born Cage, known for his work on Rawkus' Smut Peddlers' project, his solo album Movies For The Blind, and his infamous feuds with fellow Caucasian blender-head Eminem, shines as a gifted rhyme-ripper with a penchant for the punchline. Cage, reveling in the role of Deke DaSilva (Stallone), offers lyrics that are single-mindedly stark, invariably turning phrases with pornographic and/or bloodthirsty elements. The lyricist's Gothic qualities make him the perfect master of ceremonies for this supposed diatribe/glorification of Gotham's seamy underbelly.

The unheralded Camu Tao also holds his own on the microphone, playing an equally twisted sidekick- Matthew Fox (Billy Dee)- to Cage's hell-bent Stallone. Tao also doubles as a producer (seven tracks) for the album's squirmy, gurgling score. While not an easy or an engaging listen, the album is effective in that it has the ability to put the fear of God in the listener, at times playing like a scene from a classic crooked cop flick (Serpico), at others, perhaps giving glimpses of a shifty NYPD shakedown or even a dark and dreary Big Apple holding cell. Guest appearances include Eon and Mighty Mi of The High & Mighty, and Tame One, formerly of Artifacts' fame. ~ M.F. DiBella, Rovi
