CD Reviews

Must Have

"This single contains one of my favorite hip hop remixes of all time. The 'Respiration Flying High remix' prod. by Pete Rock feat. Black Thought?!?! WOW, amazing...I have had this CD single since it came out in '99. Do yourself a favor and pick this joint up..."

"I love both versions of this song, as both HiTek and Pete Rock bless the track in similar, yet distinct ways. Pete Rock utilizes a jazzy piano loop that rises and falls in beautiful synthesis, while HiTek chooses to illumine the track with an understated guitar lick, and rapid percussion. The lyrics are handled equisitely by a triumvirate team comprised of Mos Def, Talib and Common, and while each member lives up to his name, it is ultimately Common that leaves the lasting impression, due to his emotional take on reminiscing."
Fresh Air

""Respiration" is one of the smoothest songs to come along in hip hop in some time. The song has a liquid beat that MC's Mos Def, Taleb Kwali and guest Common glide over the top of. The song contains the line "breathe in, breathe out" and you can inhale this song as breath of fresh air in the hip hop world amid all the gansta poses of MC's like Jay-Z and others."
