Eyedea & Abilities+Themselves
Eyedea & Abilities are the Dream Theater of hip-hopa blaze of ridiculous chops obscuring an aesthetic that ain't always everyone's cup of tea. MC Eyedea is a Scribble Jam champ and Abilities can scratch like a beast, but their recent album, By the Throat, is a weird, 30-minute, quasi-punk album that has left rap fans boggled. Fellow envelope-pushers Themselves are back after a small hiatus, and are leaving a trail of surrealist word clusterbombs, frenetic beats, and mind-altering lap-pop.
