From Sapporo, Hokkaido, Tha Blue Herb are one of Japan's finest hip-hop / rap artists. Tha Blue Herb have developed their own creative sound and style, undeniably hip, but not pandering to the latest trends, with a strong electronic vibe attached to their pertinent lyrics. This album features 3 Tha Blue Herb tracks together with other artists they have signed to their own Tha Blue Herb Recordings label. These are the excellent Shuren The Fire, O.N.O., Jun Gold and Naohito Uchiyama. Jazzy beats, soul and dub feature on an album that showcases the very best in Japanese hip-hop. While Tokyo usually dominates musical trends in Japan, it's in the north, Sapporo, that hip-hop has come of age. Booklet comes with English transaltions of the lyrics.
