Q's second solo album following 2004's "Vengeance Is Mine", "Between Heaven & Hell" finds him refusing to concede to current trends by changing up his dense wordplay or ear for relentlessly rugged production. His storytelling verses tackle everything from pre-Giuliani NYC ("Crack Era") to small-time robbery gone bad ("Mr. Lopez"), while getting a hand from co-conspirators such as Ill Bill, Mr. Hyde, Jise, Slaine, plus Arsonist homies D Stroy and Freestyle on "Questions." This is music for people who still like their hip-hop grimy, and preferred Times Square with more peep shows and less Applebee's.
Featuring: Ill Bill, Slaine, DJ Eclipse, Psycho Realm, Cashis, Realm Reality, Mr. Hyde and Arsonists members D Stroy, Freestyle, Jise & Ching Production by: Necro, Q-Unique, Quincey Tones, Rob Flow, Lost Son and Q-Dog
Q-Unique's critically acclaimed solo debut, "Vengeance Is Mine", is considered by fans a classic.. With guest features by: ILL BILL, Goretex, DJ Eclipse, Swel, E Dot and Necro. Production on this 50 minute album is an all-star selection of East coast beatmakers. JuJu from the Beatnuts laces "Diamond in the Ruff" and "Me, That's Who." Necro is on point with "The Set Up," "The Ugly Place," "Canarsie Artie's Revenge" and "Father's Day" among others. Phase One handles "H to the C", Context blesses "One Shot," S Groove shines on "Nature of the Beast" and Q-Unique handles most of the rest of his album. Basically speaking, this is a high quality audio venture from start to finish. With so many sharp tracks, Q-Unique becomes the difference maker on turning songs from warm to blazing hot.
