While the rest of the music world currently awaits LA based TDE/Interscope rapper Kendrick Lamar’s sophomore album this year, It may be easy to neglect the music of long term Underground MC’s like Joe Styles (also from LA). Backed by production from Shinjuku, Tokyo producer Budamunk, “Soul Quest” takes plenty of influence from past Hip Hop albums where rappers would often utilize R&B vocalists or sing their own chorus quite often to the humour of listeners. 


Albums like that would also seek to tap into the market that commercially viable hooks had on outlets like radio and music video channels. This does not however correspond to the modern R&B/Rap stylings of artists like Drake and Mack Wilds but instead more towards the direction of albums like Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s “The Main Ingredient” and Blu & Exile’s “Below The Heavens”.

The track “Soul Quest” serves as the intro, with Joe singing his heart out, approaching harmony and voice control in an intentionally funny way. Concepts on the song jump between smoking weed, to the appreciation of thick women and while Its content that had been explored minimally on their previous joint effort “From LA to Tokyo” It sets the tone for what is meant to be a very playful audio experience. - Medium
