-MUSIC PICK OF THE WEEK-
Masters of the Universe
The story behind emcee Senim Silla and One Be Lo’s astonishing masterwork is almost better than the actual music. Almost. The duo met in prison while serving armed robbery charges, and upon their release collaborated on 1999’s limited-edition LP Waterworld, produced for a paltry $500. The songs from that album would later be re-mixed for Masters of the Universe, combining a love for spoken-word style flows, sample-heavy intros, and jazzy beats.
