Non stop intelligence from pen to vocal delivery. Sounds dropping like overstuffed hawks in a field of micees. Yanking consciousnesses from the daily and turning the number combination to 844-65, translated THINK. Impossible to go from start to finish on Confidence is Everything III and not wonder. Poetry from history, nature, pop culture, sports... Ullnevano and Illien Rosewell blur information and viewpoints with great beats and melodies.
Confidence is Everything III is stated to be the third and final installment of this series. The first cassette was delivered by Already Dead Tapes and Records back in October of 2015, this one is sold out. The second of the series II, came out close to exactly two years ago on the Illinois label In The Lake Records and is still available. Both Ullnevano and Illien Rosewell have 2018 releases on In The Lake Records, ShamGod (Ullnevano & Manhe) and Behold (Illien Rosewell).
With references to Hurricane Harvey, Hakeem Olajuwon, Issac Newton, Uncle Fester, Michael Jordan, Tony Hawk, Instagram... the tangle of topics surly can cause a rhyming charlie horse. In order to amalgamate this newspaper on microfilm of information, there is an underlying confidence on all eight tracks. Refreshing to hear an entire album based on grasp and insight of self and surroundings. Confidence is Everything III is a continuation of Knowledge Reigning Supreme in the boom bap inflection.
Released on Already Dead Tapes and Records in a limited edition of sixty. Copies are available from the Already Dead's website. Ullnevano and Illien Rosewell are nice, be sure to pickup this cassette.
