"Koch Records has released S.M.A.C.K.The Album: Volume 1. The S.M.A.C.K. DVD series is hugely popular and this is the first companion album. True to S.M.A.C.K. form the CD also includes a DVD with exclusive interviews, battles and music videos.
Well known artists featured on the CD portion include DMX, Redman, Keith Murray, Erick Sermon, BG. The CD also highlights up and coming and underground talent such as Stack Bundles, Pulla & 2 Eleven, Sandman, Shea Davis, and Bleu Davinci among others.
The interviews are raw and real. You won't see your favorite hip-hop artists sitting in a studio with bright studio lights. S.M.A.C.K. catches the artists in their element. E-40 is interviewed on the streets of Vallejo. The E-40 interviews captures the hyphy movement in it's rawest form. Viewers get a chance to see Mannie Fresh hard at work in the studio making beats and he also discusses why he left Cash Money. DMX is seen behind the scenes shooting a music video and drinking some liquor. It's all about seeing the artists as they actually are.
The S.M.A.C.K.The Album: Volume 1 is a good purchase for the hip-hop fan who likes hip-hop in the purest form. No curse words edited out, artists being themselves, nothing blurred or beeped. It's a good purchase.
