Monastery of Sound After listening to this album on cassette in my car for months without ever tiring I knew I had to add it to my vinyl collection before it sold out. Uncommon Nasa is an understated hip hop genius IMHO. Favorite track: This Bodega (Is Trying to Kill Me) (w/ Elucid).

Gregory Bruccoleri Can't believe I missed this. After looking for hip-hop that I can get into as an older guy (plus the needledrop and Mike-C Town). There is an era of this album that does not exist anymore. I purchased this on a whim and glad I did. This may not resonate with younger people but if you're in your 30's and were open to other styles of hip-hop in the mid-90's you will appreciate this. This will take additional listens to appreciate but buy this and support.

Damn That Noise "If there's anything common about the prog rap evil genius, it's his consistent honesty and passion for the art of music, and his city" www.syffal.com/uncommon-nasa-new-york-telephone Favorite track: This Bodega (Is Trying to Kill Me) (w/ Elucid).

Rusty Joints Gave a quick listen. Copped it. Then gave a more real listen, and this thing has a certain magic to it.
I had it all LOOPalized like 3 times today, with no effort.
Rock-On NASA Favorite track: Curmudgeon.

Thank Youse:
First, as always, thank you to my wife Angela for without whom none of this would be possible, your involvement in this record in particular means the world to me. Thank you to my Parents for their support of my art. Thank you to Jazzpants for returning my emails and making myself and Uncommon Records look so good and so professional for an amount of years that no one else ever endured with me. Thank you to Messiah Musik for providing a chunk of this records sound, you gave it a character that it wouldn't have ever had without you being involved. Thank you to Black-Tokyo for urging me to make this record, even at the expense of the record we had planned together, we got next! Thank you to Skribe1 for coming through with the bang that I always need on a record and for making shit that's so easy to mix down. Thank you to A.M. Breakups, glad to have you on one my full lengths now, we gotta do some more work. Thank you to Lyle Horowitz for coming through in the clutch for the second straight record just in the nick of time with a beat to create something I hope is as special to others as it feels. Thank you to billy woods for being one of the best homies I have in NYC. Thank you to BMS for being a true class act and professional, want to do more with you and have you back at the lab. Thank you to Elucid who is now on every single one of my releases, even the ones some guy named Adam made, proud that I can create so much with you man. Thank you to Yesh, 19 year old Nasa is high fiving everyone about how 35 year old Nasa got to do a jam with you. Thank you to Curly Castro for being down as fuck for this record. Thank you to PremRock, glad we finally linked on a recording, long over due. Thank you to C Money Burns for coming through at the very last of minutes and laying down some guitar with your fellow road dog. Thank you to Shortrock for making my strange ideas for cut sequences sound so calculated. Thank you to Tyler Cavallero for the pic on the cover and for two photo shoots that have made me look way cooler then I am in real life. Thanks to Justin Bieler for the hard part of the job, manufacturing these awesome cassettes, can't wait to drop "Cold War Era" on IHAA. Thank you to all my Uncommon label-mates and co-conspirators, so many to name and so much music I want to make with you, I can't even name you all without leaving anyone out. And finally, thank you to everyone that has supported my music and my label over the years, it means more then I can express and more and more to me as the years pass that I'm still fortunate enough to do this. And how can I forget? Thank you to NEW YORK CITY, you made me.
