After years of being at the front lines of Canadian rap, Red1 of the Rascalz is done with begging the music industry for acceptance. This makes for a pretty cynical album theme, but it's also a handy way for the Vancouver MC to introduce his solo offering and new independent label, Killawatt Records. Fortunately, any bitterness over past begging isn't reflected in the music on this party record, which switches settings between the basement and the dance floor with a contagious bump. I'm not a fan of every track, but everyone will be able to find a handful of personal favourites on this varied 75-minute album. Mine? No Fuss No Fight featuring the always ideal Barrington Levy, the Erick Sermon-esque funk of Reckless and the Annie-sampling Living In A Shanty.
