A brief review of Bumpy Knuckles & Statik Selektah's "Ambition"



For those who checked out my "New album anticipation" post, this album was a part of that list. After the excellent album Bumpy Knuckles did with DJ Premier this year ("Kolexxxion"), I anticipated this one. Thanks to Spotify, which is becoming one of my best friends, lol, I decided to listen to this before I purchased it as planned. Well, after listening to this in its entirety, I was honestly not impressed. It has to be a combination of Statik Selektah's production, which is usually up to par, but on this release it sounds a little too watered down for someone like Bumpy Knuckles. Speaking of him, he doesn't sound like he did over Premo's production on the "Kolexxxion" album. Dare I say, he sounds a little uninspired/borderline preachy on this album. Even the song that features O.C. ("Mic Bless'n Gun Press'n Impress'n") is disappointing. There are a few good songs on here, but overall it's mostly forgettable, and thanks to Spotify, I saved myself $8.99 (MP3 download via Amazon.com). Let's hope he gets it right next time.

Initial predicted rating- 4 stars

Actual rating- 3 stars

(Update- I revisited this album and added it to my collection.)

  2. I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative
    and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  11. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
    to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
