To those who don't bother to take his indi. Cons: Needs more variety. The world and its grandmother knows which emcee I idolise.
Yeah, if you read my reviews regularly youll know of my obsession and admiration for DPG flame-spitter Kurupt. Well, as hes slowly becoming more and more isolated over at Death Row under the delusional spell of Suge Knight, its time for a new hot young emcee to step up and grab the limelight, much like Kurupt did back in 92 and 93.
His name is Young Roscoe, Kurupts younger brother, whos basically one of the hottest young prospects in the rap game. Roscoe first jumped to attention in 1999, aged only 14, he blew away me and most people with an earth-shaking verse on Kurupts I Call Shots, spitting fire: Swearin y'all can see me but that's just like seein Elvis / I grab to crick a back and crack a n--a 'cross the pelvis / My rhymes is dangerous, hazardous to health / I make a n--a murder twenty kids and cap his own self. Armed with dangerous rhymes like this, its not strange why many people immediately compared him to his older brother. Given the way Roscoe was also born in Philly, but eventually raised in Cali, this gives him the same east-west blend that helped (and hindered) Kurupt. So it was only a matter of time before we saw a debut album.
This takes the name of Young Roscoe Philaphorna, and it has been pushed back more times than a Rakim album - it was originally slated for an October 2001 release, but on June the 10th it finally found a release. Could the potent young emcee hold his own throughout a whole album and would he live up to the hype created by himself? Track Listing 1. Head to Toe feat Sleepy Brown.

Get Low feat Young Assassins (****) 13. I Call Shots II feat Kurupt (*****) I classify Roscoe into the midst of a number of talented, young Westcoast lyricists coming up in the game such as Sly Boogy, Crooked I and Planet Asia. Whenever hes dropped verses before Philaphorna theyve always been on point, but the question is does he continue his progress on his debt album? In short, yes. Roscoe can ride virtually any beat, for example on LT Huttons insanely fast, oriental-sounding beat on former lead single Shakedown. The eighteen year old drops a quite stunning triple-cadence flow with lyrics pelted out at top-speed it almost reminds me of *whisper* Pharoahe Monch.
O Seconds, a good opening song, finds Roscoe once again spitting rawness over a simple and hard-hitting Fingazz beat: Breakin em off, like umbilical cords / takin em off the billboards, charging through at full force / Head first, walk em, torture them high to death / ready to scorch them and leave them stiff like starch Given that this album is 13 tracks long, its pleasantly surprising that there are not really any weak songs. Now how long has it been since Ive been able to say that about a rap album?
I like this album considerably, so much Im prepared to nit-pick. What hinders Philaphorna is that Sco is lured into nondescript writing when the tempo drops and the commercial stakes increase, such as the single Head to Toe. He sounds somewhat lacklustre, and its a contrast with the high energy kinetics previously demonstrated. And apart from the storytelling of Last Night Roscoe doesnt really dig very deep or vary his subject matter that much. Ok hes only 18, but some introspective lyrics might have been a nice touch.
Ill sound biased saying this, but Kurupts calming influence has otherwise helped this CD. Not only has he executive produced and helped sequence the album, he drops background vocals on several tracks and provides the hidden remix of the classic Kurupt song that I mentioned at the top of the review: I Call Shots II.
Roscoes battle capabilities obviously derived from his older brother shines here, he literally tears his new verses apart with venom like: I snort Anthrax / transports sacks of raw like Amtrak and When I see bling-bling I snatch it and pawn it / Ching-ching add it to my wallet, Im heartless. Yeah, ouch in an era where a hundred lesser emcees have blown up because of their endorsement of bling-bling, its a brave demolishment job from Roscoe of a style of Hip Hop he could easily have been tempted to adopt to push units. All I needed on this otherwise excellent remix is a new verse from Kurupt to complete things. However, the production on Philaphorna is very good as is he sequencing: it flows smootly with nice variety, and the solid beats from various recognised producers is impressive. Take Smooth Sailin, the albums standout moment. Sampling the Ba da ba ba baaaa chant from Earth, Wind and Fires Brazilian Rhyme, this fits in perfectly alongside a truly relaxing, hypnotic synthesized beat with various soothing sound effects. Roscoe adjusts his flow and tone brilliantly to deliver smoothly flowing tales of his ambitions and life during sunny California afternoons.

As indicated by this standout, if youre only into grimy hip hop a la Mobb Deep or Boot Camp Clik then maybe this CD aint for you. But cuts like Get Flipped are undeniably pure heat, as DJ Quiks stirring orchestral efforts enlightens the song. This is the perfect CD for summer Its About That Time is a great feel-good song to chill out to.
It has that Westcoast mentality. There is no doubt about it, you better step out of the way of the Young Roscoe Philaphorna express-train. Roscoe is an eloquent, serious lyricist who is not to be f--ked with and this debut album demonstrates this. Blending feel-good summer tunes with some awesome shows of lyrical prowess, all this young emcee needs to do is add some variety as he can undoubtedly already hang with the best. A very solid album that isnt mindblowing, but great for Westcoast fans and people on the look out for new talents.
