Sims - Bad Time Zoo (Doomtree)

Sims had a lot to live up to following on from his 'Lights Out' album dropped back in 05', and for any artists this is where the worry comes with the whole moving forward ish the next album has to be better it has to grow etc. But I'm not sure Sims had to have these worries, with his mad flows, nice lyrics and some of the nicest beats from fellow Doomtree artist Laserbeak. I think the conclusion was these two were born to make heavy hip hop without losing the content that an album needs to stand up as a classic.

Thick tracks, laced with some of the nicest production I've heard in a while and Sims smashing it on every rap with pure poetry. It will be a great shame if this doesn't get the same light as the other Doomtree solo albums; Dessa (A Badly Broken Code), Paper Tiger (Made like Us) and then Laserbeak (Legend Recognize Legend) all bringing their own uniqueness to the overall crews sound. Can't wait for a new crew project, but still these heads are ahead of the game and bring something fresh on solo ting to a scene which has sort of forgotten the music.

For an album out of the Doomtree camp that is pure hip hop you need to check this !
