SOS & Mr. Archive – Spitz and Giggles (Album) [Review]

Tweet

Vancouver, BC – What do you get when a couple of fly Vancouver MCs get together to brag about alcohol consumption, sexual misadventures, and other dubious/doobie-ous themes? You get Spitz ‘N Giggles, the new release resulting from collabos between SOS aka Sauce and Mr. Archive. With them come a whole host of guesting MCs that maintain and elevate the party vibe that runs through the album from beginning to end.

Review: SOS & Mr. Archive - Spitz and Giggles (Album) - HipHopCanada.com

These dudes have so many tongue-in-cheek rhymes that must be coughing up blood – how many rappers will openly proclaim that they’ll “fishhook you girl”? Their hilarious rendition of Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up” – aptly titled “Bust A Nut” – really did it justice. From the sweet opening song “Eye Candy” with it’s funky splashy synth lines and head-snapping beat, to the random interlude verses kicked over sick beatboxing, this joint rolls from one entertaining song right into the next.

With local veterans like Attikus and Chadio along with cats like Flip Da Lip and Tyler 2X – not to mention the variety of sounds coming from beatmakers Bevvy Swift, K Rec and Lekz – there’s not a bar of boredom to be heard. “Bragging Rights” and “High Pass” offer a smorgasbord of MCs and styles all the while maintaining the shits and giggles theme throughout. Everyone comes correct with every verse and each song is fully developed as a distinct track in and of itself.

It’s clear these guys don’t take themselves as painfully serious as most rappers tend to, nor do they take any other rapper seriously, dropping dis after dis while remaining lighthearted. Sauce and Archive kicked out a rad fun album just for the sake of it and it’d be nice to see more of that in hip-hop.

Jesse "Lyric420" Furnell grew up in the Surrey skate scene of the early 90s. Exposed to more rock than rap - although he did own Public Enemy's Fear Of A Black Planet tape in elementary school - his attitude that 'good art is good art' has always given him a fresh outlook on music whether it be punk, prog rock, metal, indie or rap. The Bay Area scene and sound of the late 90s is what initially pulled Jesse into the boom bap: thanks to Quannum and Heiro, along with what was happening in the East coast underground rap scene, he found himself immersed, impressed and obsessed with hip-hop like never before. The philosophy major turned college dropout, once a familiar face at the Surrey courthouse, is now more entrenched in music than ever before. He started rapping in early 2000 and he's yet to stop, even when asked to. Fortunately or unfortunately, Jesse has much to say on the topic of hip-hop and has now been given the chance to have his opinion heard on a national scale. Our apologies.
