This album is, simply put, one of the best hip-hop albums I've heard in years. Something for everyone who enjoys hip-hop with an eye on the nice sides of life. That said, politics, the dangers behind trap-doors and even zombies are discussed on this album in a brilliant, witty and simply fantastic way. Teej is a different sort of rapper to the grimey or gangsta' rappers (not that I don't enjoy some of those too as I do). His style is very literate with many references to art, ancient gods and all manner of things that you would not expect to hear discussed by someone who is all about the street. Tom Caruana is an absolutely brilliant producer making some of the best hip-hop beats in the UK and armed with an amazing sense of creativity and originality (he also does guest vocals on the song 'Curse of the Corporate Body Rotters'). He has worked with excellent UK hip-hop artists such as Dr. Syntax, Elemental, Skinnyman and others. Together Teej and Tom are Teejuana, an unstoppable force in psychedelic hip-hop. Download now to hear it for yourself.
