To quote Third Kind’s Dr. Soose, -- the joke’s on you, Jack! Anyone who sleeps on this hip-hop trio is slipping. The star of this show is Dr. Soose. The creative mind behind the groups beats, Soose paints a sonic landscape that takes listeners on a trip that crosses time, geography and culture. MCs Falah Salaam and Spec more than hold their own, sounding comfortable over the eclectic sounds, serving wack MCs, addressing hip-hop sellouts, reminiscing on relationships and more. Spec’s voice takes some getting used to, but his flow adds even more flavor to the group. Fans of Black Eyed Peas should take notice, but make no mistake, Third Kind has a style of its own.
