Brother Reade, 'Rap Music' (Record Collection)

Rap Music
Critical Mass
Label: Record Collection

by Josh Modell

This indie-white-rapper show throws in some cautionary thug tales among the usual braggadocio, and their subtle flair and smarts make up for the occasional tossed-off cliché. Rapper Jimmy Jamz and producer Bobby Evans do a little with a little, grafting sometimes solid, sometimes staid rhymes to sometimes workmanlike, sometimes imaginative beats. When Jamz acts more funny than hard ("I'm Lou Reed and I wanna be inside her velvet underground") and Evans channels Company Flow, they click. That's not often, but often enough not to send them backpacking.
