One constant throughout the history of Hip Hop–and really all genres of music–is the habit of aging artists attempting to evolve into modern trends and styles to stay relevant. The practice has been done with mixed results, sometimes even so much with the same artist. As a recent example, Nas has songs on his latest album King’s Disease II where he sounds both good (“Rare”) and not (“40 Side”) when blending his craft with the current mannerisms of today’s popular rappers. But in Hip Hop, the direction to adhere to the roots of the Golden Era has proven time and time again that when done well, an artist will yield timeless music consistently. The Boom Bap Project have over their career presented steadfast proof of this, and perhaps never as well as on their latest album Return Flight.
