Rozewood’s “The Beautiful Type” 2014 Album Produced by Illastrate From Atlanta GA
Smooth melodic tracks, big hip-hop drums official! Production from Atlanta, GA’s dope hip-hop producer Illastrate. Vocal movie samples at the end of a few tracks, no doubt on some golden era hip-hop inspiration. Rozewood’s lyrical flow, served up easy on the pallet, reminiscent of some Raekwon flavor, Wu Tang style. Holding it down, the crew backs him up with some street official lyricism on this 2014 Working Class Music release. We present to you Rozewood “The Beautiful Type”, timeless hip hop music.
A much bigger hip hop movement is going on in Atlanta then most folks might think. Illastrate, founder of the record label Working Class Music is a great example of that. If you though the ATL was only about Lil Jon and what not, then you might wanna get familiar with cats like King I Divine, Divine ScienZe, and a few others… keep these cat’s on your radar screen, there’s always something jumping off.

Roze spit like the little brother of Prodigy and Raekwon telling maaad different stories. Illa spazzed on these tracks, shit sounds like Isaac Hayes Soul orchestra. Yamin’s mix kept it crispitty yet warm at the same time. Y’all newbies should fck widdit #WorkingClassMusicGroup Favorite track: Last Days”.
