Azerbaijani Hip-hop Artist I.d.e.a.l Releases Newest LP “Teleport”
The skyrocketing hip hop artist known as i.d.e.a.l. has released his newest LP, “Teleport.” The record is a full length album composed of 13 original tracks that comprise 46 minutes of top notch urban style hip hop listening time. Its back beats are excellently composed, but not the main attraction, serving mainly as rhythm and groove to accompany the blazing talent of i.d.e.a.l., himself. The orchestration of the music is often heavily (and excellently) influenced by modern jazz and rhythm n' blues, over which i.d.e.a.l. raps with all the poetry and expert elocution of the genre's legendary godfathers.
The tone of 'Teleport” by i.d.e.a.l. is often somewhere between Warren G's “Regulate” and Us3's “Cantaloop,” although i.d.e.a.l. often speaks more directly and with more force than either of these artists. It is also worth mentioning that although “Teleport” is listed as bearing what is termed 'explicit language' by the modern music industry, i.d.e.a.l.'s lines are never gratuitous, ridiculous, or merely profane, his lyrical content seeming at all times deliberate, eloquent, and worthy of the listener's consideration.
I.d.e.a.l., himself, is an Azerbaijani hip hop musician from the capitol city, Baku. He was already fluent in Armenian when his passion for West Coast American rap began to transform into a talent of his own for composition and performance. He wrote constantly and took great pains to perfect his English pronunciation, which brilliant results are plain to hear in the surgical precision of his phrasing and delivery on this remarkable record. Although “Teleport” is not i.d.e.a.l.'s first venture into the recording studio, it represents the culmination of over ten years' worth of his masterful efforts in shaping his craft for all to hear.
“With hard work anything is possible,” writes i.d.e.a.l. “People are closed-minded and don't see the work you put in until you put it out for everyone to see. You have to have faith in yourself, no matter what happens. You have to respect others, too. This album [addresses] everyone that doubted, or who makes fun of those trying to get to that level of skill.”
“Teleport” by i.d.e.a.l. is available online worldwide
