Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon
Title: Talking to God
Label: St. Records/Nature Sounds/EMI
"I'm talking to God/when you got, Kanye comparing Soulja Boy to Nas/I used to pray, used to pray for the cars/and the jewels and the money now I pray for rap stars... Puff Daddy comparin Lil Wayne to Biggie Smalls." This may be one of the most timely hip-hop singles released in a long time, as Termanology goes out of his way to reference feuds as recent as Shaquille O'Neal dissing Kobe Bryant, which is dope to listen to present tense but could just as easily result in the song becoming quickly dated. Nevertheless the somber strings and symphonic backdrop put across Termanology's point well, and hit the right note of nostalgia when he complains that "nowadays there's no graffiti on the train." Highly recommended for the headphones or an underground mixtape but definitely not a club banger.
