There are a flurry of hip hop acts breaking ground at the moment who take their lead from the early nineties golden age of hip hop. Clear Soul Forces is one such group. Hailing from Motor City Detroit, their kicked back sounds reminds me of Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief and early Nas, and is far removed from the commercially inclined pop-hop that suffocates the urban music scene.Lyrically stong and with rich productions from Hudson Mohawke and others, Clear Soul Forces have restored a little of my faith in modern hip hop. And they have some great videos.
