Prodigy, 'H.N.I.C. PT. 2' (Infamous/Vox Music Group)

8
H.N.I.C. PT. 2
Critical Mass
Label: Infamous/Vox Music Group

by Thomas Golianopoulos

Prodigy just might be the most depressing, paranoid, and nihilistic artist in hip-hop today. In his world, neighborhood menaces are canonized ("Veteran's Memorial Pt. 2"), guns are always shot ("Click Click"), and Satan-worshipping pedophiles control the government ("Real Power Is People"). H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 is a real downer, but it's also completely gripping, mostly because Prodigy's weary voice -- made wearier by his lifelong battle with sickle-cell anemia and an impending prison sentence -- perfectly complements the lush, keyboard-heavy backdrops. More kudos for including the creepiest recital of the "ABCs" ever.
