The best rap super group you've never heard of

Boston area MCs Mr. Lif and Akrobatik, along with longtime friend DJ Fakts One, have finally made it official and formed the new rap super group The Perceptionists. Their first release, Black Dialogue, is probably the best rap albulm of the year this far. With DJ Fakts dropping audio samples from Aqua Teen Hunger Force and a guest appearance by Shock G, a/k/a Humpty Hump (yes, he's still spunky and prefers a lumpier style oatmeal), it touches on both the poignant and the insignificant. The Lyrical style ranges from "Where are the weapons of mass destruction?/Been looking for months and we ain't found nothin/Hey Mr. President tell us something/Knew from the beggining yo ass was bluffin" to "Get ladies in bunches/They like the stomach so I don't do crunches."

Go support your local capitalist and get this album now.

No idea if they're on Rhapsody...they're fairly underground, so it's kinda hard to find their stuff through downloading, but trust me, it's worth the exorbant $16 that Best Buy will charge you. Or the cheaper price your local record shop (if you have one) will charge you.
