"It's the year 3030..."
A dystopian future where galactic corporate entities sustain a strangle hold on the universe, and "Deltron-Zero" emerges to save humanity and music from this 31st century New World Order by winning The Galactic Rhyme Federation Championship.
This album delivers not only in its fantastic iterations of Afrofuturism, but also in its rich tableau of multidimensional rhyme schemes and symbolism, woven into well crafted samples and turntable melodicism. Rob and Joël explore all these elements while reflecting on the album's underground legacy, and share their respective experiences and journey with this album.
This album ranks as the first hip hop concept album in the evolving canon of the podcast, and most certainly it will not be the last.
