1: The idea of '' Underground Hip Hop '' almost seems unjust. So much lyrical talent goes unrecognized because artist aren't interested in accumulating absurd amounts of chains or Cristal. Instead, they're about making honest statements and constructing melodies to complement their poetic thoughts. However these artist are probably considered ''underground'' for a reason, with their music symbolizing buried treasure Soul Logistics Radio By Tamara McCollough THE SCRIBE University of Colorado

29: www.soullogistics.com | SOUL TRACKS REVIEW OF RODNEY'S SOUL SURVIVOR - SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 The artist known as Rodney the Soul Singer gives listeners a lot of different voices on his new CD, The Soul Survivor. In the background, listeners hear file audio recordings of David Ruffin, Shepherd Smith and Howard Cosell, just to name a few. Rodney quotes scripture, and he assumes the vocal personas of Sam Cooke, Ruffin, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and Ronald Isley. In fact, Rodney’s voice stands out as the one constant on a record that is tribute, history lesson, piece of auditory performance art and political statement. In a way, The Soul Survivor has the feel of one of those mixed media art pieces that combines painting, drawing and words and pictures taken from newspapers and magazines. At first glance, it appears that the piece has a thrown together quality with no discernible theme. However, a motif begins to emerge after closer inspection. The pattern becomes clear on the tune “PST,” the album’s midway point. This track features someone flipping through the stations on a radio dial. With each stop, listeners hear the original news broadcasts of the demise of great male singers while the opening bars of Isaac Hayes’ version of “Never Can Say Goodbye” play in a recurring loop. The immortal roll call of ‘soul’ men includes news accounts or remembrances of artists including Redding, Teddy Pendergrass, Cooke, Gaye, George Harrison, Billy Preston, Donny Hathaway, James Brown, Luther Vandross Ruffin, and Eddie Kendricks. The tribute includes Howard Cosell’s famous announcement of John Lennon’s assassination during a Dec. 8, 1980 Monday Night Football game in Miami. The tune ends with Shep Smith’s announcement of Michael Jackson’s death in 2009. By the time the listener reaches “PST,” it becomes clear that Rodney wants his listeners to understand that a host of great soul singers have taken their final bows. The deaths also marked the end a style of singing that many fans view as more harmonic, honest and muscular. By naming the album The Soul Survivor, Rodney seeks to align himself with that generation of vocalists, even though hip hop influenced production techniques and swagger course through the numbers “Cry” and “Pleasures.” Both songs successfully strike the balance between the old school and the new breed because Rodney’s vocals carry the weight and passion of the old singers he so clearly admires. A third attempt at old/new fusion, the bedroom ballad “Vegas,” is a far less compelling. The music has a repetitive quality, the drum programming is unimaginative and Rodney’s vocals seemed restrained by this over-produced song. That becomes even clearer while listening to the excellent ensuing cut, the dramatic torch song “Wanting U.” The joint starts with Rodney singing unaccompanied. The vocal harmonies and musical accompaniment merge with the lead vocalist as the song builds to its crescendo. The harmony featured on this album stand out as one of The Soul Survivor’s virtues. Many critics say that quality vocal harmonies are few and far between in a lot of modern R&B music, but The Soul Survivor brims with tight harmonies. Those harmonies can be heard in the ballad “Let U Go,” theymake the hook in “Girl I Need You Right Now,” pop and they effectively give “Cry” that late 1960s/early 1970s feel. Sampling is one new school technique featured on The Soul Survivor. However, Rodney deviates from the beaten path in his search for material to sample. The mid-tempo love song “Choose U” features slice of Marvin Gaye’s rendition of the standard “Why Did I Choose You” that was featured on his 1985 posthumous release “Romantically Yours.” The album’s title The Soul Survivor is a play on a phrase that means that someone is the last one standing. While there are other singers who unabashedly lift the soul banner, nobody will ask Rodney to step out of line when he stakes his claim to the mantle. Recommended. By Howard Dukes

106: Conscious Hip Hop isnt dead author: Twoo-3 This CD is definitely a burner and it proves that nowadays it is still possible to combine conscious lyrics with good music. Doug Evans & the Soul Logistics Cew put out an amzong album. Its an awesome underground release which would be the talk of the town if it was released on a major label. Not only that it presents conscious lyrics )which most of us do rarely hear in nowadays hip hop music) it although presents a lot of styles. and as one or another might remember this what Hip Hop is mostly about : Styles & Consciousness. The CD brings you tracks for any occasion. Some laid back soulful tracks like Better days, some sureshot dancefloorfiller like E.M.C.E.E. & Gift Of Gab Remix as well as tracks to bang in our car (or my bus ride). I am usually more the vinyl type of guy but i give all the advice to get that CD soon or someday in the future you will have to dig deep for it. And by the way i dont think it will come for 8 bucks in a few years from now. | The Soul Logistics Radio Show P.O.BOX 1648 Hopewell VA, 23860

107: Poignant questions were raised by Doug Evan's of Soul Logistics with lines like "Why black folks been paying tithes for years? Still don't gotta pot to piss in; congregation won't listen" and "The jig is up time up the garment/ better read for your salvation; the keys you education/ my people perish for a lack of knowledge and not college/you put your own self in bondage." | '' Games People Play '' smooth , sad , & real author: Veasy Very first thought at the end of the first listening: "Amen" Well done. The sound is great, very clean, balanced. I dig the piano loop. Please, tell that kid I said he (she?) did an awesome job with the opening dictionary definition. Very well spoken, clear and articulate. I note this because I have recorded with children and they often trail off and start mumbling. This kid got it perfect. The rest, the story being told, is also quite well done. The music gives a creeping, incremental feel, moving along like the story itself progresses - inch by nervous inch. The voice is beautiful, strong, angry, each word a precise jab. The lyrics... Was it really a man who wrote this? A man who recognizes his hypocrisy in the game when he decides to call the other out? huh. Remarkable. I easily imagined a video for this while it played. The ending spinning out of control, the cherries flashing through the window in the dark as he stands there. Waiting to face it like a man.
