edited October 2011 in The Essence
Atmosphere, Blueprint, Grieves and Evidence have all put out studio albums in 2011, and they've all been quality albums..Rhymesayers Entertainment always put out great music, and that hasn't changed this year..

Atmosphere-The Family Sign: 3.5/5
Tho this album was not as good as WLGYL imo, it's still a pretty good album..it definitely has some gems on it like Last to Say, I Don't Need Brighter Days, Your Name Here, Something So, If You Can Save Me Now..Slug & Ant continue to add solid albums to their catalog..

Blueprint-Adventures in Counter Culture: 4.5/5
Great album!..I haven't stopped playing this album since I heard it..Production is top notch, has great lyrics and content..definitely in my top 3 albums this year..not really a bad song on this album..favorite tracks are Stole Our Yesterday, Radio-Inactive, The Other Side, The Clouds, Mind Body & Soul, My Culture..

Grieves & Budo-Together/Apart: 4/5
Grieves lays it all on the table, backed by great production that fits perfectly with Grieves lyrics..makes for a solid album..favorite tracks are Lightspeed, Boogie Man, Wild Thing, Heartbreak Hotel, Falling from You

Evidence-Cats & Dogs: 4/5
Evidence continues the Rhymesayers trend of putting out quality music with Cats & Dogs..was very impressed being that I never really got into Evidence..great lyrics along with great production on this album from the Alchemist & DJ Premier..Evidence delivers on his Rhymesayers debut..favorite tracks are Late for the Sky, Red Carpet, You, The Epilogue, It Wasn't Me

    Rhymesayers are the best label around IMO.

    I Copped all of the above, Except Blueprint, but thats on the list.....

    Atmosphere last release was a little dissapointing, but it was never gonna be as good as WLGYL. Not many albums are that good.

    Grieves is dope, not got into it yet though. That lightspeed song is great!

    Evidence album lived up to the high expectation.....great release.

    Haven't peeped the Blueprint album yet, but I probably should. Grieves dropped a great album, Atmosphere have been one of my favorites for years and I for one liked the direction they took on this new album, not perfect, but the live instrumentation was well done and created a backdrop for the album unseen in Hip Hop before, Slug was on his storytelling best just wished he would amp up his flow a bit sometimes, and that Cats & Dogs album is excellent. Great beats and great rhymes. The guests all brought it too. 3 dope releases from the best indie rap label around.

    Best and most consistent label in HIPHOP. They always release quality material and their artists are sincere and true with no bullshit.

    That's what really makes them above and beyond any other label; to me, they represent hip hop and never release sub-par albums. They're the one label, similar to QN5, where you can buy an album based off the label. You know it's worth your $$'s.

    The Last to Say by Atmosphere is the song of the year, to me, so far.

    Great thread :tu

    I also love how Rhymesayers seems to be a real family situation. They don't just take on anyone because they are "hot". It's all connected and that helps maintain the quality.

    You mean that all the artists end up in their circle before being signed???
