ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Philosophy Cole aka Warpath

Starting as a battle rapper Path hit up local clubs in Pontiac and Detroit slowly building a name and reputation as a gifted freestyler and lyricist. Within a short time he was signed by an up and coming Record Company entitled Detroit City Prospects with other local artist in and around the Detroit area.

The Record Company released the album Detroit City Prospects: Projects to Prospects Vol: 1, which sold out around 2003. The company played shows all around the Detroit area showcasing Warpath, and other artist on the label. Egos collided soon after and the company fell apart. This gave Warpath the chance to focus on his solo career. Warpaths catalog consist of Armageddon, released in 2007 produced by Eddie Logix also from Detroit. After moving from Detroit to Indianapolis, Warpath linked up with Blak Maul to make the mix tape Against the Grain.

Shortly after, Warpath linked with France Representatives, the FakeHunters to make the classic Ears to the Street album signed under feelin’ Music.

Warpath was also featured on the recently released Detroit Hustles Harder Vol: 1
Presented by Aptemal. Produced by Eddie Logix, featuring a host of Detroit based artist. Warpath was also featured on Blak Mauls mix tapes Underground Souls and The Mission.

Warpath uses actual events that he has experienced, escaped or had to face and somehow rise up from the ashes. These instances have helped to sculpt his style. A vivid story teller and witty lyricist best describes Path.

“I think people in general are lost in things unworthy of time. I write about worthwhile things. Real life struggles, real life lessons, reality. I also believe that it’s important to have a meaning, a reason, a main thought, point or goal if you’re an artist. I know that TOO MANY people are just making songs and for WHAT? I don’t know, I doubt they even know. The bottom line is, I’m here to make moving music. Something you can feel.”-Path

Warpath is a BEAST with a Mic
If y'all have not heard the Official Documents album by Warpath & Blakmaul, then lemme y'all one thing, "U will be LOST" (period). Warpath is a master on the mic.. True skills is truly being displayed on the really. It brings back good memories when hip hop meant something back in the 90s.

Blakmaul is the BEAT blaster for ya. With that combination it brings back the era of Pete Rock & CL Smooth & GangStarr.. But they is really doing their own thing & it's good for what HIP HOP NEEDS today. Peeps that really LOVE that true hip hop like they say they do, then this one CD that they can truly EMBRACE.

SO GET ON IT NOW if U haven't already..

If you are in need of an album worth it's money, buy this one.
Do you like albums that are...albums? Not a disc with a few singles and a bunch of cookie-cutter beats and crappy fillers? Then go buy this one. Superb lyrics and concepts that have meaning to it, slamming beats that will make you nostalgia hard while being original, the whole nine yards. It has that Golden-Era feeling to it without sounding outdated, great stuff. Go get this sumbitch if you love rap and Hip-Hop in general, this is one cat you should be supporting. Oh yeah, "Fight Night" is on repeat in my car.

Does anyone remember when music sounded good? I do. I remember when I could listen to an album for the first time and get lost in it; trying to hear every nuance and absorb every detail of the art that was being handed to me by someone, somewhere that believed in the principles that they possesed that allowed them to create it. I remember when an album could transform the shape of my lips and forcefully pull me out of a foul mood or, conversely, transport me into a place where I could openly be angry at the government or the persecution of a people or the intolerable betrayal of a friend. Music used to allow a person to emote. Somewhere along the road to the present people have abandoned that desire to be affected by music that had a message and adopted a strange fascination with substanceless, hollow, superficial sounds that only have the ability to influence the rate at which their feet move from side to side while they dance themselves into being programmed by their 'Idols'. Luckily for those of us that still know how to cry or laugh or love, there is a bubble that floats to the surface every so often that provides the exact amount of air that is needed to refresh our breath until the next bubble pops. Lately Ive been wading just below the surface of an ocean of, what can only be described as, horrible 'music'; waiting for a breath of fresh air to lumber past me and I can happily say that today I am finally taking in that breath and it has come to me in the form of OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.
There are two pieces to this puzzle that constuct the image of OD. Those pieces are a Detroit emcee by the name of Warpath and a South Carolina producer known as Blak Maul. The chemistry between this Detroit, Michigan microphone monster and the powerhouse that created the production is undeniable upon listening to the opening track, titled INTRO. The vocal introduction describes it perfectly as Warpath proclaims "this is some epic sh*t, yall". The strings do their job at dragging the listeners ear into the trap that springs shut as the drums drop and the the orchestral, screaming, sample finalizes the kill. It's impossible to escape now...
Once you get through the third or fourth listen to the first track (you WILL rewind it a few times) you realize that you are hearing a team that has taken the time to learn the tricks of their respective trades to a point of perfection. Maul's finesse with the MPC 2000xl gives the production on OD a commanding presence and basically catapults him into the list of the most impressive producers in the industry. There is a certain "feel" that is specific to Detroit producers and it seems as if, even though he hails from the south, Blak Maul has the choppy, swaying, funky bug that produces that "feeling" because he defanitely delivers with perfect drum selection and a utilization of samples that is reminiscent of one of the most prolific beatsmiths and Detroit royalty, J-Dilla. Im hard pressed to find a weak link in the chain of instrumentals that build the playlist. Every song blends seemlessly with the next as the album unfolds like a story that is being told through the circuitry of the MPC and Motif synthesizer that Black Maul weilds like a hip-hop Excalibur. These are certainly weapons more than production tools and it appears as if Blak has trained well for battle.
If you can peel your ear away from the stunning underlyings long enough to listen to the lyrics on Official Documents you will find yourself being drawn into a web of cunningly constructed social commentary that is balanced perfectly with a working class, punch in the gut delivery that brings you back to the era of hip hop that made people proud to be hip hop fans. The album has flipped flopped the standard of music, lately, in the sense that most albums that have come out in the last 15 years have had a rolling mediocrity that is complimented by fleeting moments of brilliance and on OD there is a fascinating consistancy of fantastic material that truly has no downside. It may take a second listen but there is a story being told here. OD could certainly be mistaken for a piece of audible literature that delivers a message that has been long overdue in the only genre of music that seems to have been destroyed by the very ideals that constructed it. As with any story, nobody wants the ending to be spoiled so I'll leave the specifics up to you to discover and be amazed by.
In a generation of music that lacks substance or relevance of any kind, Official Documents is a welcome bit of refeshment that has revitalized my faith in a tortured genre of music that has come very close to extinction. OD isn't "OLD SCHOOL" or "NEW SCHOOL" it's TRUE SCHOOL hip hop that has been made for real people and real fans of REAL music. We cant, as listeners, let it end with the offering of an album like Official Documents, though. It's our job as fans to grasp the handle that been put in front of us, purchase the works of,  and support the minds that can provide us with such purely nutritional art.
