Arsonists alumni Q-Unique can always be counted on to bring through the amped-up mic skills. The Brooklyn MC’s fourth solo project starts with the booming “Look Up In The Sky,” where he bigs up his rap-rock connections—“I’m tatted up and I’m on the road with Korn”—before signing off in superhero terms: “Capital Q, Brooklyn, look up in the sky!” The energy and intensity continue via a couple of collaborations with Ill Bill—the eerie “No Country For Old Men” and the dramatic, string-powered “Cult Leader & Capital”—along with the discordant modern borough shoutout “Brooklyn Stomp.” -Phillip Mlynar
Back in the late '90s New York indie-rap heyday, the Arsonists were one of the most exciting and revered acts around, city-raised B-boys known for neck-breaking beats, razor-sharp lyricism, and explosive live shows. Q-Unique was one of their standout members, and though the group has been disbanded for many years, he continues to release quality music on his own. His second solo joint following 2004's "Vengeance Is Mine", "Between Heaven & Hell" finds him keeping it real to the utmost, refusing to concede to current trends by changing up his dense wordplay or ear for relentlessly rugged production. His storytelling verses tackle everything from pre-Giuliani NYC ("Crack Era") to small-time robbery gone bad ("Mr. Lopez"), while getting a hand from co-conspirators such as Ill Bill, Mr. Hyde, Jise, Slaine, plus Arsonist homies D Stroy and Freestyle on "Questions." This is music for people who still like their hip-hop grimy, and preferred Times Square with more peep shows and less Applebee's.
