Album Notes
D-Rhyme is an independent Hip-Hop artist hailing from Massachusetts. Heavily influenced by artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Public Enemy, Gangstarr and others, D-Rhymes attitude on Hip-Hop is simple: Make people feel good and engage listeners in both a musical and lyrical forum. Hip-Hop is not only about what may be portrayed on television and what people categorize in popular culture. Hip-Hop is a creative energy that is personal. D-Rhyme's record Rhyme & Reason is personal and hits you with an array of tracks guaranteed to make listeners think twice about putting Hip-Hop in just one category.

Track one, "The Conqueror", opens with fury as the hard beat mixed with D-Rhymes vocal explosion give the first song on the CD a definite welcome and sonic wake-up.

Track two, What I'm Talkin Bout", is a song with music complexity and a new style of D-Rhymes lyrical skill not displayed on track one. This track has some southern flare while keeping pace with D-Rhymes lyrical meter.

If you're looking for some old school beats and rhymes at its purest form, then track three, "Beats Rhymes and Life" is just for you. To all who think the days of beats and rhymes was over, better think again! This track hits you in its simple form. Back to the days when hip-hop was just starting and lyrical skill was a right of passage.

The rest of the album "Rhyme and Reason" by artist D-Rhyme is a forum for versatility in Hip-Hop. Listeners have commented that there is never a common track and that there is always something for someone. From the ethnic drum playing of Darbuka on "The Grind" to the jazz piano genius of Eric Byrd from the Eric Byrd Trio on "Eternal", Rhyme & Reason is a pulsating experience both lyrically and musically for devoted Hip-Hop/Rap fans, as well as a welcoming introduction for new Hip-Hop fans!

classic hip hop...takin' it back to when lyrical style was supreme
Remember when hip-hop was about lyrical skill and creativity not directed for mass consumption. It's great to be able to sit down and play this cd and be captivated by style, rhymes, and classic beat structures. It's about time hip-hop came back to its roots.

Dryhme does it like it like noone else can.
A disc for the ages. Rhyme - himself a longtime music and cultural critic and frequent player in hip-hop's development - examines hip-hop in his latest offering. Rhyme & Reason analyzes hip-hop as a business, a myth, and a moral force, and proves that it is the single most influential culture in the world today through verse and word play. From intro to outro, Rhyme & Reason shows us why the culture we know as hip-hop has held a steady grip on America, against all odds, for over twenty years. Bravo!

Eric Byrd

Phenomenal CD full of creativity and uniqueness
Listening to this CD is bittersweet for any true hip-hop fan: great because this is full of creativity, a bit bitter because this type of artistry is missing from popular culture and music. Each track is a journey through classic rap and future possibility; a perfect combination of the best of old and new, when the focus was on the lyric and not on the objectification of women of color in the video. No distractions here: just honest lyrics in a phat musical context. If you love the possibility of rap and what makes it great, you'll love this CD.
