So I've ate, shit, and slept with Mister Jason's Frankensteez project for nearly six days now, and it's rewind-button-city-all-day. Despite having disappeared from the recording side of things for years - since his Porn Theatre Ushers days with Nabo Rawk - Jason managed to return with a comeback strong enough to rape a horse. Even the artwork is classic.
The video above is for "Skeleton Key," which features DJ Frank White (on co-production), with MC duties handled by Kno Supreme, whose nice and smooth flow is ear crack for any hip-hop junkie. As for visuals; there are too many cameos to name, but Paul Foley (of Wasted Talent) deserves a special shout-out for his Oscar-worthy turn as a bespectacled pedophile murderer.
Which brings me to the vinyl release of "Mister Jason Has A Posse." Over the past year and then some, the Frankensteez crew tapped 26 MCs (track list below) - each representing a different letter of the alphabet - to throw two polysyllabic cents apiece into Jason's beat bank. The result is a heroic feat, easily one of boom bap's stand-out moments of the year. And the B-sides are fire too. I might buy two of these despite having but one out-of-commission turntable.
