Album Notes
Canto I - \"While You Were Sleeping\"

Canto I gives Hip-Hop a wake-up call with their brand new, full-length sophomore release entitled \"While You Were Sleeping\". Their thematic approach gives listeners an in-depth examination of the state of the music industry, life industry, and future industry. \"While You Were Sleeping\" resurrects smooth, syllable flows, creative, speaker-tearing beats, and most importantly independent ideology. With production by Marco Polo on \"Think They Know\" and \"I Do Still Love H.E.R.\", guest features from Tree Woodz, Has-Lo, and Lacy Redhead, this album is sure to bring the \"old-school hip-hopper\" to reminisce over times when music was a part of everyday life.

The way these two flow back & forth with each other is a thing of beauty. There is no ackward pauses & they never go over each other. The old-school style is something that has been missing for some time now. Great job guys!

Jaime De La Cruz

very sick asa album i just heard 2 of their tracks and i bought both albums my favorite track is "I do still love H E R" check em out, they have a funky sound, and you won't regret buying the album.

Brad at CD Baby

If one thing becomes evident after listening to "Think They Know," the second track on the sophomore release from this Nevadan hip hop pair, it's this: you can check your expectations at the door. These guys are set to get a little topsy-turvy on you, and you'd be wise to simply strap in and enjoy the ride. When you hear a well connected hip hop duo, the most impressive thing isn't always their strengths as individuals; it's often the seamless ways in which they pass the mic back and forth, never missing a beat, never allowing for any awkward missteps. These two have it down to a science, feeding off each other's verses and stepping in and out when the time's just right. The lyrics are well-penned and easy to get with, filling out a sound that's already stacked with thick, groove-laden beats. They leave no space wasted, fleshing out every last second of these 14 head-nodding cuts.


Well done
Best underground hip hop album in a long long time. Keep on rockin!

Pistol Pete

The Renaissance of hip hop
This band has created a truely brilliant album. It's not often that a hip hop album takes you on a genre infusing journey. Coming from a true fan of music, who appreciates the art of creating an album, not a jumble of quickly assembled songs with a few, 'singles' interspersed throughout. This band has done just that, brought hip hop into the I-pods of music fans who would normally be reviewing an album by arcade fire or spoon. Thanks for turning me on to this album, cd baby!
