Little Brother - The Minstrel Show mp3 flac
The Minstrel Show is the second studio album by hip hop trio Little Brother. It followed the critical success of their 2003 debut, The Listening. The album was highly anticipated and touted as a probable breakthrough for the group, even before its release. The title is a reference to the minstrel shows that were popular in the United States during the 19th century.
Complete your Little Brother collection. Thematically speaking, this album is unlike anything I have ever heard. From start to finish, Little Brother and their production crew (near) flawlessly execute their Minstrel Show satire. The "Fifth and Fashion" skit is in my personal skit hall of fame. If you are a young, (halfway) educated black person in 'merica-like myself-this skit especially will make you smile.

Few groups earn a major-label contract based on their producer's merits, but when Little Brother jumped to Atlantic for their second full album, The Minstrel Show, any cynic looking for a good reason would point to the increased profile of trackmaster 9th Wonder (Jay-Z, Destiny's Child). But it wasn't just 9th Wonder that made Little Brother's first album one of the best underground rap debuts of the new millennium; rappers Phonte and Big Pooh matched a smooth Southern drawl with up-North smarts

The album's Minstrel Show is a fictional Saturday Night Live-type program televised on the UBN (U Black Niggas- a revealing bit of finger-pointing) network, which provides the basis for the bounty of skits and jokes throughout. Some of the skits are funny at first listen, but the skit long ago became the wanky guitar solo of hip-hop. Save the skits and one stab at soft targets, R. Kelly and Ronald Isley, Little Brother make no attempt to adhere to the concept. Little Brother have good intentions. They want to sound like the groups they grew up enjoying, namely A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Pete Rock & CL Smooth (they even homage ATCQ's "Oh My God" on "Still Lives Through"), but their songs sound more like signifiers of those groups, not their logical descendents.
