Saint Joe - Thinning Out the Heard (Album)
Denver's Saint Joe Separates the Real from the Fake on Debut Effort
The record arrives several years in the making, and it definitely shows. This is a meticulously crafted effort that flows seamlessly from one track to the next. It's an impressive feat for a project absolutely bursting with music (17 songs) and guest features, but Joe's vision keeps it cohesive and tight. He deftly blends bravado and realness through bars that touch on the struggles of being creative. There's a humility to his tough talk, which allows his words to transcend.
"My music is painstakingly created for Hip-Hop heads and connoisseurs,"
TOTH's guest lineup is just as acclaimed, with names like Dirtbag Dan, Chris Rivers, Reef The Lost Cauze, Chino XL, and others rounding out the features. They all play their part (and very well at that) within Joe's narrative of staying real to yourself. That mindset is best driven home on standout single "Being Real," which features West Philly Freck and Hypnautic. As sharp as their verses are, it's Joe who sums up his mission when he raps, "I'm too busy for that bullsh*t, I'd rather eat."
Thinning Out The Heard is available now via Joe's own imprint, K.R.A.K. Productions, through iTunes and all other major digital retailers and streaming outlets.
