ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
202

Robert Dryer is 202 and he’s here to prove that there is such a thing as positive hip-hop. The genre is often denigrated by those who misunderstand it as being entirely about violence and misogyny, but that’s simply not true. 202 is all the evidence you need. Combining superb beat work and lyrical skill and spiritual considerations, 202 is a top notch purveyor of what Dryer describes as “underground street-hop mixed with Christian Hip-Hip.” 202 is a unique and innovative voice both lyrically and musically.

Fixture

It may seem like a challenge to fuse hip-hop’s typical attitudinal aggression with spiritual considerations, but faith is a serious for dimension of many people. And, for someone with Dryer’s talent, it is totally possible for the mixture to work. You see, the mixture is a fixture. Music is an unmovable presence in Dryer’s life and so 202 is able to present an intimate understanding of music, the sort of passion and artistic power necessary to express one’s feelings at full strength, even if it goes against the grain. “Music is a fixture in my life that has served to make clearer just who and what I am. Through the sound and expression of music, I am able to connect to and/or convey the most intimate parts of my worldview, and entertain and have fun.” His musical expression provides a strong message for listeners but also rewards the artist with self knowledge. “As I connect and/or convey those parts of me that I hold most important, I am able to find clarity about my purpose and destiny for myself and hopefully others.”

Work

202 Puts in work, on the grind 24-7, 365. Simple as that.

Movement

Dryer as 202 is committed to “God, family, streets,” he says; and with consistent material coming from him, we should be hearing more of him as his sphere grows. He had an independent release in 2007 called Still Standing, and is aiming to have one out every couple years, as he says “everybody listens and joins the movement”. His next independent release will be out in 2009 called “Motivation”. Product can be found on Itunes, Rhapsody, Amazon mp3, Myspace, and most online music providers.

Review

“202 is a unique voice, both for hip-hop and for Christian music.” – A&R Select
