Bloodmoney & Morbidly-O-Beats – ‘The Art Of Self Destruction’ C23 $5.5
This tape is crazy – the cassettes and cases are the exact same color yellow – the artwork is printed on translucent paper with a slight “ivory” or yellow tinge. You couldn’t expect a stranger concept when it comes to the art on this one. And then you have the music – Morbidly-O-Beats crushes this one. The beats are hard, the samples are powerful, the album crushes in an old-school style. The lo-fi beat tape feel is present as Bloodmoney takes on the microphone. Bloodmoney wrestles with his inner soul and social assumptions with a laid back rap style that rests so heavy on Morbidly-O-Beats production. “The Art Of Self Destruction” is a collection of off-key, experimental, dark hip hop. The rhymes and rhythm integrate into a seamless decay of self disconnection. Limited to 98 cassettes.
