ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rhyme University embodies the essence of Hip Hop music. The group consists of blood brothers, Black Ceasar (MC) and Bustrip (MC/producer). They have been rhyming/writing songs since 1996, and have a unique perspective to bring to Hip Hop for a number of reasons. Their parents are from Nigeria; they have lived and traveled extensively throughout the globe – including two years in Paris, France and four years in Muscat, Oman (1997-2001); and both are well educated. Their music is always socially conscious and thought provoking. Upon hearing their music, the chemistry that the two possess is very apparent. They are not only brothers, but best friends and musical soul mates who share a love of beats and rhymes.

The album, “Children of Uyo, Give It Your All”, has been a long time in the making. This follow-up to their self-titled debut is a culmination of years of hard work. Uyo, Nigeria is the birthplace of their parents, and as a consequence, the birthplace of Rhyme University. The songs on this album are intensely personal, detailing the struggles of the two brothers, their Nigerian relatives, and society as a whole. At times militant, the album offers harsh criticisms to injustice, violence, corruption, racism, domestic abuse, and the materialism infesting commercial rap music. The brothers themselves are not immune to criticism, as some lyrics show blunt self-analysis. The beats on this album are at times moody and always soulful, providing the perfect backdrop to Rhyme University’s deep lyrics. “Children of Uyo, Give It Your All” shows the improvement of Rhyme University in their craft and as human beings. This album embodies the heart and soul of the two brothers, and is a must have for any Hip Hop purist looking for lyrical skill, original concepts and dope beats.
