I think this is the best hip-hop album on itunes.

I don't think I have to say anything else about it. I could, but it isn't necessary. Just listen to it.

DOOMTREE RULES.

Get this album. Everyone who likes true hip-hop should cop it. Dont illegally download it, you gotta support artists like this who hustle and dont get any recognition. Great group, has 12+ members so they fight for every verse and kill it. COP THIS DEFF.

Doomtree- "Falsehopes" (2007)

Doomtree is an amazing collective, and their music is always top-notch. Comprised of P.O.S, Cecil Otter, Dessa, Mike Mictlan and Sims on vocals, these songs all have at least some redeeming value. In most cases, there's quite a bit of it.
the verbal dexterity exhibited by these five MCs put most others to shame; even atmosphere on his best day can't match most of what's presented here.
Nearly every track is perfect, with the exception of two: "Hot Monotony" is just too busy and loud, while the remix of "No Homeowners" (originally from Sims' Solo disc, "Lights out in Paris") sounds like a trainwreck where the original was one of their tightest songs as a crew.
beyond those, however, everything is amazing in one way or another.
"Flex" and "Traveling Dunk Tank" will give you an idea of the ridiculous skills these five have as MCs.
The production here is split between a few producers: Cecil Otter, MK Larada, Lazerbeak (Aaron Mader of the now defunct Plastic Constellations), Paper Tiger, and POS; each has a distinct style that adds to these tracks in very different ways. "Veteran" is a highlight, Sung by Dessa with production by Lazerbeak. Pianos and horns mesh together to create something catchier than anything this side of Billie Jean. The verses are amongst the strongest on the whole disc, which is impressive considering how consistently good this album is.

Buy it. These are Great musicians working hard. They deserve your money and attention.
Key Tracks: Flex, Traveling Dunk Tank, Veteran, Savion Glover, A Hundred Fathers, If and When
