The Infesticons, 'Bedford Park' (Big Dada)

7
Bedford Park
Critical Mass
Label: Big Dada

by Mosi Reeves

Musician and poet Mike Ladd's hip-hop satire of the true-school "Infesticons" dueling with bling-obsessed "Majesticons" has lain dormant since 2005's Beauty Party. So why revisit it now with Bedford Park? Ladd acknowledges that the grimy New York indie-rap scene he once defended no longer exists, and this final chapter is mostly a conceit for his messy avant adventures: the scarred, noisy punk of "Blockin' Door Anthem," the mock-Southern swag of "Bombs Anthem," and the gallant ragga of "Plane Anthem." The rap wars are over; all that remains are mash-ups.
