Babygrande has been making a lot of moves lately as they've recently released the new 7L & Esoteric, a reissue of Violent By Design, and a September drop of Brand Nubian's new album to name a few. In between all of that they're also dropping Outerspace's (Crypt the Warchild and Planetary) first LP Blood & Ashes. Friends from nearly birth, the duo's brotherhood is closely tied in with Jedi Mind Tricks, thus a similar style is manifested. With guest microphone mathematics from Immortal Technique, Vinnie Paz, Esoteric, Celph Titled, King Syze and Sadat X as well as beats from Beyonder, 7L, Celph, Sat One and Panik of Molemen fame. More noise from Philly...

A definite classic in my book, the duo of Planetary & Crypt the Warchild of the famed A.O.T.P. fam drop a banger of a debut. With an ill sound similar to that of JMT but ultimately their own and a slew of talented guest stars who step up to the mic including underground intellectual MC, Immortal Technique, who closes the album on the brooding Angels of Death, old-skool stalwart Brand Nubian's frontman, Sadat X, and of course their main man, Vinnie Paz who transforms Blades of Glory into one of the album's stand-out tracks. These two dope MC's have risen from the shadows of Jedi Mind Tricks and dropped one the best debut's to come out in years!
