ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pvt Militant aka Alonzo W. Hill was born Aug 17 1968 in Flint, (Hard Rock), Michigan. Pvt Militant has been a fan of the art form (Rap) since the fall of 1979 when he was introduced to rap, via Rappers Delight. While attending elementary school Pvt Militant began to write poetry and read just about everything he could get his hands on. He enjoyed authors such as Steinbeck, Malcolm X, Hawthorne and James Baldwin. As a freshman in high school, he spent money he had saved from his allowance to buy two turntables and a mixer and began to learn how to make mix tapes, and began DJing at parties. Unfortunately, the cost of buying two albums for each new release caused Pvt Militant to slow down on his hobby and concentrate on other things. The other things happened to be girls and partying. Absent from school for almost an entire semester, Pvt Militant began to think about his future, and his addiction to Rap. In 1988 just months after graduating over a year late, Pvt Militant joined the U.S. Army. During his stint in the U.S. Army, he was accused of being a non-conformist as early as basic training and almost was thrown out for insubordination two and a half years later. Luckily, his early years saved him, because of his love of reading, he researched the U.S. Army regulations, regarding insubordination and used the very weapons they were trying to use against him to earn his Honorable Discharge in October of 1991. While doing his stint in the U.S. Army, he became militant (fighting for what is right) and never got pass the rank of private, so he became Pvt Militant. After his discharge from the U.S. Army Pvt Militant entered a local community college and eventually earned his A.A. in 1994 and a B.A. in Political Science in 1998. While attending the U of M splinter campus Pvt Militant became involved with student politics and was chosen to become the Student's of Black Achievement President, but chose to step down and allow another student take the position, so he could continue to make change behind the scene. In addition while matriculating the U of M Pvt Militant lectured to a group of teenagers on several occasions and managed to continue to record several underground tracks. One of which was named "What is a Rhyme Without Substance". Which is the one track that led to him being contacted by Bill Tha Pharmacizt to record a song with Public Enemy and Confrontation Camp titled "We Don't Need U". After being inspired to rhyme, again after a self-imposed hiatus several projects came to being and thus spawned the Impossebulls. C-Doc stewarded the Impossebulls (Marcus J, Tirade, DJ President Ike, Def Chad) while Chuck D offered guidance. Always inspired to write and perform songs Pvt Militant linked with a local producer Tha Commandant and scoured the planet for beats from producers such as Dee-Lo Blackington, Chemiztry The DopeBeat Maker, and C-Doc to complete his long awaited debut album "One Man Against Many". Pvt Militant has performed with and is a member of Chuck D's super group The Impossebulls and has opened up (Alongside the Impossebulls) for groups such as Public Enemy, Dilated Peoples and Blackalicious. Pvt Militant has also appeared on local television shows "Life out Loud" and "In my Opinion" discussing the music industry and having political debates. Lastly, Pvt Militant has always been involved with the Hip-Hop scene, first as a Break Dancer, then as a DJ, turned Graffiti Artist, and lastly an MC.

Hype Currie "scholar of pop culture"


The Flint, Michigan based rapper comes hard with the beats and rhymes.


Artist: Pvt. Militant
CD: One Man Against Many
Label: Warlord Records

One Man Against Many is the current album from Pvt. Militant, a tough-talking Midwestern rapper who takes his cues from the `Golden Era' of message-driven rap rather than from the current `Bling-Bling' era of contemporary hitmakers. A member of indie rap outfit The Impossebulls, Pvt. Militant, aka `Khalfani', is mad as hell at current hip-hop, and it shows.

"War Tyme" (FOI Remix) blends up-tempo beats and guitar riffs to highlight his manifesto: He's a streetwise, politically-minded rapper in the tradition of Chuck D and early Ice Cube- "This is war, and I'm not givin' up.. Marches, sit-ins, petitions, protests/ the powers that be got us runnin' like roaches/ the prison population is blowin' up/ you better duck, `cause the system, loves to lock (blacks) up."

Another one of the standout cuts, "Put the Gunz Down", condemns the street violence that claims so many people; rhyming over a Terminator X breakbeat, he blasts, "Put the guns down, it's time to cease the violence/ if it goes down, knuckle up, I won't be silent/ you affect more than the life you take..if we begin to think".

But lest you think that Militant is just a stern lecturer, he shows his sensitive side on "Come On Baby", entreating a lady to spend time with him rather than her loutish ex: "Come on baby, evade the trap, you should be living much better than that.. let me ease your mind don't sweat, I promise I'll make it better for you someday.." The romantic and naughty side of P.M. continues on the Twista-like "U Get Me Hot" and the club-ready, piano-driven "It's 4 U" will remind listeners of Tupac. These songs help to balance out what could be a relentless stream of polemics to listeners who are otherwise indifferent to "conscious" rap.

Indie hip-hop has a lot of unsung heroes. Radio rarely comes calling, and video play outside of the Internet is even less frequent. Grinding on the underground circuit can be daunting, but Private Militant doesn't mind going up against grim odds. After all, he's "One Man Against Many".

Lord Bastard

This Kat is the Seriousness...like AIDS...
You know, this album is kind of like sex with your wife...if you know what I mean...if you don't, then buy it and find out for yourself. Cause rap is in a state of disarray/ and Pvt Militant is back with something to say/ If you can't take the heat get out the kitchen/ listen to this album and quit all of your bitchin'...

Don't take my words for it, PVT's got better rhymes than that...

Pvt Militant provides a much needed alternative to the bling and booty that's so prevalent in today's rap industry.

The dopest album 2004 !!!
PVT MILITANT !!!!

This man created the greatest piece of work that I had witnessed in the year 2004. This album is a jewel !!!
True Hip-Hop fans will enjoy every second! His lyrics are striking...not to compare with our present Rap -mainstream.
PVT Militant is an artist that this entertainment industry needs, because at this stage -it is lost.

"one man against many" is unique.
The whole album features different kind of awesome beats combined with his dope voice and style...

"One man against many" is not just fresh, it is already a classic rap album! In my opinion, this is a real piece of art! Music for the true rap fans...

I have no favourite tracks, because every track is my favourite track. Seldom there are albums which I like from the very first listening, but this album was an exception.
I was surprised...and I´m still surprised.

Without a doubt, a throughout perfect CD.

BUY IT !!!

Peace, from Germany.

AMG Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5
Label: The Orchard
Release Date: 9/21/2004





It doesn't take long to pick up on the influence Chuck D has on PVT Militant. He sounds like a raspier version of the Public Enemy front man, has the same in-your-face attitude, and can spit out the knowledge with that same D flair. What he adds is a David Banner-type growl coupled with a poet's heart, an odd combination that's worth considering. Militant is skilled enough to straddle the noise and meditation on One Man Against Many, an album that's street-level rebel music one minute, and open-mic night deepness the next. Scrap the materialism, there'll be none of that on the album. Scrap the clichéd production too because Militant has found an idea-filled bunch of beat makers. That's especially surprising considering he's from the not-known-for-its-hip-hop Flint, Michigan. Militant righteously defends the city on the certain "Flint Hop", while the rest of the album displays that credible street music doesn't just come from the coasts. Compared to its fully-formed surroundings, the booty/party jam "U Get Me Hot" is the weak link, but rarely do homebrewed debuts offer up so many mixtape worthy jams. By the end of the album it's easy to forget about the Chuck D influence and root for PVT Militant. Besides being skilled, he's untouched by clichés and unaffected by the south or the coasts, a combination that makes One Man Against Many unique and worth hearing. ~ David Jeffries , All Music Guide

Hard-Hitting, Funkified Rhythms and Biting, Conscious Rhymes.....
Pvt Militant: One Man Against Many

Pvt Militant and Warlord Records have brought hip hop back to an era of hard-hitting, funkified rhythms and biting, conscious rhymes. And this revolution is straight out of Flint . When Pvt Militant says he is “not in this game for fun,” you better believe he means it. This CD is what you get after the show has been bum rushed. The mellow “Flint Hop” with Mostradamus combines a slow flow of verses with a funky piano that you can’t get out of your head once you have heard it. All 15 tracks are live. Pvt Militant has opened for Public Enemy and is part of the ground-breaking Impossebulls movement that is taking the power of music away from the record companies through the Internet. Check out www.pvtmilitant.com to order your CD and learn more about one of Flint ’s finest.

Non Corrupt art at its best...
Artist: Pvt. Militant
Album: One Man Against Many
Category: Socially Conscious Rap
Highlights: Not A Lyric Wasted, Battle Of The Soul, War Tyme (especially the re-mix)
Lowlights: U Get Me Hot, It's 4 U
Notable Influences: Public Enemy, 2Pac, LL Cool J, Paris, Franz Fanon, Huey P. Newton.
Vocals: Deep throaty vocals reminiscent of Khujo Goodie, old Xzibit and socially conscious era 2pac
Beats: Some Frantic, Some chill with the C-doc sound (I call it electro-chill) lots of Public Enemy samples.
Lyrical Content: Socially conscious, at times angry and militant at others toned down and R&B style. Mostly rebellious.
Let me talk first about what I like about this disc. It is not the same old CD, there is no Bling-Bling here, No Woman Bashing, None of the stuff that has created the stigma around rap music and hip-hop culture these days.
In fact it is quite the opposite. It declares "War Tyme" on the mainstream images that seem to have stagnated the pools of rap. The title track brings up images of the socially conscious era 2Pac, the tracks "Not A Lyric
Wasted" and "Battle Of The Soul" bring an incredible beats and lyric mesh that makes one wonder how the mainstream could have possibly slept on an artist like this. Even the skit "Man U Crazy" has overtones of Huey P.
Newton's "Revolutionary Suicide" written all over it.
Now about what I don't like about this disc... I am not very fond of the R&B tracks on this disc. they do not seem to fit into the flow of the rest of the album. I find that these are the tracks that I will end up fast forwarding. Over all they seem out of place. Speaking of out of place
the placement of the middle finger on the front panel of the cover seems very out of place, as it implies a lack of caring for the world, where actually the disc is full of rhymes about how much he actually does care. A whole lot.

Brutile!
Pvt has one of the most evil vocal stylings I've ever heard in rap. This has a lot of power to it and should not be overlooked.
