Jedi Mind Tricks - The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological & Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness
Back in the mid to late 90's, there was this really amazing thing happening where underground rappers were attempting to be scientists, historians, mythologists, ufologists, and theologians all at the same time. It was, i think, the best period in hip hop. Period. This is a perfect example of that time. I introduce Jedi Mind Tricks' 1997 masterpiece, "The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological & Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness". This album, their debut, goes between all of the above categories within seconds of eachother non-stop the entire time. It's kind of like listening to that crazy old man on the street corner that's handing out flyers of his home spun conspiracy theories for an hour straight. Only there's music, which makes it a little more bearable.
