Various: Urban Renewal Program Supplement 1.5
Chocolate Industries, 2004
After several delays, the latest installment of Urban Renewal Program finally hits the streets, and it’s far superior to its predecessor. From Kutmasta Kurt’s creative India-inspired remix of “Wylin Out” to the smooth, catchy “Fear” by Atmosphere, this is a tight set of underground hip-hop. The raps are interspersed with instrumentals by Prefuse-73, Caural, and The Timeout Drawer, all of them excellent. I’m not sure what Chocolate Industries’ plan is regarding future issues, but I hope they’re all as high-quality as this one.
