Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Recording information: Rich Sound.
Muze PNote Director: Slaine.
Muze PNote Photographer: Erin Baldassari.
Muze PNote Never let it be said that George Carroll Jr., aka Slaine, is afraid of provocative album titles. In the mid-2000s, the Boston native attracted some regional attention in the East Coast hip-hop underground with his self-released mixtapes The White Man Is the Devil, Vol. 1 and The White Man Is the Devil, Vol. 2: Citizen Caine. But those titles were obviously ironic, because Slaine himself is white (Irish-American, to be specific), and the handful of people who took offense were mostly Five Percenter and New Black Panther types who picked up on the irony and felt that a white rapper was making fun of their black separatist ideology (besides, the "white man" he was actually referring to was cocaine -- not a race of people). However, Slaine's mixtapes were quite underground, and it wasn't until he rapped with Special Teamz and, in 2009, La Coka Nostra that he started receiving any significant attention on a national level. The less provocatively titled A World with No Skies 2.0 -- "2.0" referring to an earlier, slightly different version of the album being leaked -- is Slaine's first full-length solo album since joining forces with La Coka Nostra; it is also a demonstration of the fact that Slaine doesn't need shock value or gimmicks to maintain one's attention. He is a talented, skillful MC, if a less than groundbreaking one, and it is evident that substance is as important to him as style. Slaine doesn't inundate listeners with a bunch of hedonistic, cartoonishly decadent lyrics about "getting crunk in the club" or how much hard liquor a groupie in daisy dukes or booty shorts consumed before she stumbled onto the dancefloor; instead, he keeps it street (although not gangsta) and spends most of this effort rapping about either urban crime, poverty, and violence or his battles with his emotional demons. A World with No Skies 2.0 thrives on social commentary as well as painfully honest introspection; like a long list of rappers ranging from Eminem to the late 2Pac, Slaine isn't afraid to look in the mirror and describe his demons in elaborate detail. Again, Slaine's examination of urban decay and urban mayhem is hardly groundbreaking for hip-hop, but the fact that A World with No Skies 2.0 is derivative doesn't mean that it isn't engaging; this is a solid outing from the Irish-American MC. ~ Alex Henderson
