Termanology drops a brand new album that is dope as usual. His flow and delivery haven’t missed a step in all of these years. He keeps it street official and has some great features from legends like Kool G Rap, Tragedy Khadafi, DJ Kay Slay, and Fredro Starr. He also has newer artists like Jarren Benton, UFO Fev, Nym Lo, and more. The production on here greatly varies but Statik Selektah handles a few tracks. All in all the production is decent. I’d say it’s average to above average. It’s a decent album that plays through well and hip hop fans will definitely appreciate it.
Paul Wall links up with Termanology in a strange but dope pairing for this project. I would have never picked these two MCs to go together but this one works. On the mic, both of them shine with their signature styles. It does sound a bit complementary as well. I think Termanology may have edged out Paul Wall by just a bit lyrically. There are features from Bun B, Crooked I, Nems, and more. The production is pretty decent throughout giving a mix of some hard street beats and some more laid back, introspective sounding records. The highlight is “Recognize My Car” with its almost old school sounding beat. All in all Paul Wall and Termanology give us a good view into how well collaboration albums can go.
Termanology links up with producer Amadeus 360 The Beat King to give us a project filled with pure hip hop. On the mic, Termanology sounds great. His bars are pure and skilled. His flow and delivery are basically flawless. You get some great features from M.O.P., Ras Kass, Sheek, Nems, and many more. All of the features are great as well. Amadeus does a banging job with the beats. This is pure, unfiltered, and real hip hop. Any hip hop purists will revel in this new project. Termanology and Amadeus should be very proud of this album.
Statik Selektah and Termanology team up as the group 1982 once again to give us a very quick EP for the summertime. This one only has 3 tracks so there really isn’t much too it. Term brings the bars as he always does doing his thing on the mic. The music is a bit more laid back and airy and has a hint of a summer vibe to it. This is a good joint to play in the convertible on your quick trip to the convenience store. A good job once again by 1982.
Termanology links up with Shortfyuz to bring us an absolutely slamming new project. This one is packed full with dope rhymes and boom bap beats that should be sure to satisfy any rap fan out there. On the mic, Termanology is one of those MCs that keeps getting better and better. You can hear the maturation in his bars. He is getting better at writing all the time. He gives us some clever street lines all throughout this project. There are tons of fantastic features on here including Nems, UFO Fev, Cassidy, Planet Asia, Jay Royale, and so many more. The beats on here are slamming across the boards. There really isn’t one on here that you are going to be disappointed in. This is definitely one for the hip hop heads out there.
The 1982 duo team up once again to give us another dope project. Termanology provides dope bars and clever rhyme schemes throughout each and every song. One thing is definitely true about these types of projects – they are very cohesive and all of the songs sound like they go together. Statik Selektah is a busy man and keeps the beats coming. One thing I would have liked to see more of on here would be the themes of the songs. This album is called The Quarantine and I would have like to have seen darker, eerier beats and more content that was actually about the quarantine from Termanology. He gives us great lyrics telling us about how he is a better MC than most, but I wanted to hear more bars about this latest pandemic. Show us the terror of the world currently like he did in the first track “Pandemic.” All in all, this was a dope project, I just wanted to see a little more focus on the topic at hand. Good job fellas.
The wordsmith Termanology conducts another dope creation with this project Vintage Horns. On the mic, he is fantastic. His flow is near flawless on every track. He is a master at putting bars together and riding the beat like an expert. There are some decent features on this project from Grafh, Eto, 38 Spesh, Ras Kass, and more. The beats on here are pretty clever as well. As the title would suggest, it is very heavy on horn samples and you get some great boom bap beats. True hip hop fans will definitely appreciate this project. It is something you can definitely bop your head to. Termanology definitely keeps it rolling along.
Termanology teams up with producer Dame Grease to drop a fantastically crafted album upon our listening ears. This album really does have it all. Termanology definitely delivers the bars. This guy just gets better with time. You can see him getting better and better with each release. He is a dude that truly respects the culture and respects the craft and he puts his all into his rhymes. Dam Grease backs him up with the beats and does so with great quality. I’m not 100% sure who to credit with it, but another thing to point out are the hooks on this album. Most artists can’t ever get the hooks right because they are so hard to get a great one. This album reminds me of Pusha T’s classic My Name Is My Name where every song was expertly crafted. They weren’t looking to make radio songs, rather they were just looking to make great songs. And that is exactly what Termanology and Dame Grease did with this project. Highlights on here include “Travel The World” with Bun B and Enisa and “You Wouldn’t Understand” which is a fantastically song about dealing with alcoholism. Not only hip-hop fans, but fans of actual quality writing, will enjoy this magnum opus.
Termanology has been dope and y’all have been sleeping on him. Shame! This MC teams up with Statik Selektah to bring you their third release together as 1982 and it is pretty dope all around. Is it perfect? No. But you definitely get a concrete hip hop effort with this one. Lyrically, Termanology is nice. There isn’t any denying that. It sounds like he is getting better too. He just has that hungry sound on this album. You will also get fantastic features from Chris Rivers, Conway, Nems, & Crimeapple. All 4 of those features really go hard on this project in their own way. The highlights for me include all of the songs that they are on: “30 Shots,” “Fuck Ya Lyfestyle,” and “Crimeology.” Statik Selektah definitely puts in work on the production side of things. You get some really dope beats on here. Another great thing is that it sound like all of these songs belong together which is always good to hear on a project. You definitely can’t go wrong with this album. Hopefully we get to hear more of the same in the future.
Termanology made an extremely dope project here with this one. I’d go as far as to say that this album is what New York is supposed to sounds like. He is getting better and better with his bars. You can tell as you listen to him. It’s like each project, he studies his previous one, and makes the improvements to get to the next level. I like to see that progression in an artist. The beats on this one are really raw and gritty as well. You get those hard hitting drum tracks and dope samples that make it sound like it is coming out of a black Benz cruising up Broadway in NYC. Not only can you hear it, but he makes you see it too. The highlights on this one included “Termanator & The Machine” which features the lyrical beast Conway. That dude just smacks it out of the park on his verse. “Kaleidoscope” featuring Smif N Wessun was also a strong song on here. Give this one a spin, you will not be disappointed. New York rap reppin hard right here.
This was a decent release by the homey Termanology. I don’t necessarily think he is the best MC ever but his flow is pretty good. His rhymes are strong on this release. I think the best part of this entire project is the fact that he is able to come up with great song concepts. He definitely picks some good and diverse topics to rhyme about. I think is what can truly make a good MC when they can rhyme about different things. “First Love” is a song dedicated to his daughter. “The Last Time” is a scary tale about drunk driving and the dangers associated with it. “We’re Both Wrong” featuring Saigon is another song addressing current issues with police in society. The beats on this whole project are pretty decent. They might not be the most classic beats ever, but they do seem to stick with you and beg a replay from you. Overall I think Termanology did a good job on this project.
