1000 Clowns - Freelance Bubblehead

I first heard 1000 Clowns on the Good Burger soundtrack, which had the song "(Not the) Greatest Rapper". Years later, I had an urge to hear what else 1000 Clowns had to offer. After a lot of searching for a download for it, I ended up buying the CD (and getting an advance promo copy unfortunately). And now you can get it here.

Anyway, more about the group. Kevi (who, according to Wikipedia, won an award for being the Whitest Human Alive) raps, and has 2 backup singers. They make nearly every song that they're on much worse. There are a lot of songs on here that could be really good, then I hear the backup singers, and it ruins it for me. Also, some of the subject matter is just plain stupid. Like a dog that shits on a rug (on top of an Al Green sample...). Or the trouble Kevi faces when he loses his cat. Then there's the last track (which is one of the best) which is about his father having AIDS. Kind of an awkward transition in subject matter. On a positive note, Kevi has a really nice, smooth, chill, and likable voice when he raps, and lot of the songs have fantastic beats. Anyway, check it out.
