When the homie DotdotDotdotDotdot hit me up super excited with a sneak preview of his upcoming opus From Russia With Drugs, I got excited myself. This hypeness came from the fact that referring to any single one of his works as an opus seems redundant, as he never puts anything less than his all into the music he releases. Still, I was not prepared at all for what From Russia With Drugs held in store for me… DotdotDotdotDotdot took the Prince Paul approach made famous in A Prince Among Thieves and essentially made what equates to an audio movie, and as difficult a task as that is to pull off, my man does a killer job of it. Thanks to some vocal assistance from Alesia Lani, Pro Zay and Dray Yard, the project has a range of vocal textures, and with such an intriguing story enhanced by DotdotDotdotDotdot‘s stellar wordplay, this is a project you’d be foolish to skip. Dig this one and dig it good.
