Zion I-The Take Over Full Album 17



Andres Tardio of HipHopDX gave the album a 2.5 out of 5, writing, "Although they should be applauded for experimentation with different styles, their eagerness to please everyone inevitably took over the album in a negative way."[4] Rachel Swan of East Bay Express called it "a producers' album, wherein all imagination and experimental energy lies in the beats, while the substantive content of the raps ceases to matter."[7]




Zion I-The Take Over full album 17



The whole album is an exploration in dichotomies - the hard and the soft, the steady and the chaotic, both in its instrumentation and in its lyricism. Like the vulnerable emotional experiences it narrates, the album is multidimensional, layered, and textured, blending the light and the dark, the hard and the soft, the steady and the chaotic, expressing a full and complex range of truths.


First off thanks\r\nSecond of all....\r\nWoah, is it just me or did amplive go waaaaaaaayyyy overboard on the beats. This sounds like a remixed lil wayne song, wow, seriously what happened to zion I.\r\nI mean, some of the beats are good, but wow I was just not expecting this at all. Holy crap I'm getting old.","mainEntityOfPage":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/forum\/thread\/437419\/Zion-I---The-Take-Over"},"@type":"Comment","author":"@type":"Person","name":"dave44","image":"https:\/\/images.newschoolers.com\/images\/17\/00\/36\/22\/05\/362205_50w_50h_zc.gif","url":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/member\/dave44.98496\/Profile","dateCreated":"2009-01-29 17:58:44","text":"It's more... well, upbeat or 'clubby', if that makes sense. It's really different from Zion's older stuff. Don't get me wrong, I still like a quite a few of the songs, but it seems like he's trying to cross-over from the 'underground' to 'mainstream', if you know what I mean (eg Common, Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, etc). It kinda sucks seeing an artist you love sell out, but I guess that's what most of the mainstream artists have fallen for and can no longer see the division.\r\n\r\nStay hyphy fellas, I'll give this album a few more listens in the meantime.

I'm guessing none of you like lil wayne. Well I'm sorry but some of these songs sound way much like weezy. We all know zumbi has the whiny voice going on but he definitly amped up the whine in this album and went from the relaxed style like in Trippin to the very short, choppy, emphasized, multiple internal rhyme, lil wayne style.\r\nOn the other hand, amplive has some good beats as always. He has gotten a lot more skilled and complex but also has gone waaaaaaaayyy too 2009 computerized. I'm hearing robot voices in this, really? I have to say I like the African drums and generally the beats sound better than most club stuff but still is club and whack. Theres no need to repeat the same shitty verse over and over again just let zumbi rock the mic.\r\n","mainEntityOfPage":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/forum\/thread\/437419\/Zion-I---The-Take-Over","@type":"Comment","author":"@type":"Person","name":"asian_allen","image":"https:\/\/images.newschoolers.com\/images\/17\/00\/36\/07\/71\/360771_50w_50h_zc.gif","url":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/member\/asian-allen.75791\/Profile","dateCreated":"2009-01-30 18:40:25","text":"pfft, you a fan of the zion i or you just want to hear deep water slang on repeat forever and ever?\r\n\r\nits about subject and content. that stayed the same, his delivery style might have changed, but i dont think hes a lil wayne,.","mainEntityOfPage":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/forum\/thread\/437419\/Zion-I---The-Take-Over","@type":"Comment","author":"@type":"Person","name":"Jwenz","image":"https:\/\/images.newschoolers.com\/images\/17\/00\/35\/92\/02\/359202_50w_50h_zc.gif","url":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/member\/Jwenz.50444\/Profile","dateCreated":"2009-01-30 19:18:44","text":"Who cares about lil wayne, blah blah.

His lyrics are shit. Zion I is very well produced as well but actually has substance to back up that production through stage presence, an actual care about what he sings about and amazing lyrics. \r\n\r\nAmplive is one of the best DJs in the game and Zumbi is on of the best MCs. That's not even arguable. If you researched this album a little, you'd see that they did a lot of experimentation with this album. They wanted to intentionally create a diverse album and spent a lot of time producing and tuning it to how they wanted it to sound. It's obviously not going to please everybody but it's a great album if you ask me. It really shows their ability to diversify their music and Zumbi comes through and dilivers some insane lines on top of some of Amplive's dope ass beats like always.\r\n\r\n\r\nBottomline: See Zion I live and you will apreciate them so much more","mainEntityOfPage":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/forum\/thread\/437419\/Zion-I---The-Take-Over","@type":"Comment","author":"@type":"Person","name":"ThaLorax","image":"https:\/\/images.newschoolers.com\/images\/17\/00\/41\/69\/89\/416989_50w_50h_zc.jpeg","url":"https:\/\/www.newschoolers.com\/member\/ThaLorax.66611\/Profile","dateCreated":"2009-02-01 17:09:31","text":"Oh, and please tell me what you mean by he sold out?
