Drowning Dog - Got No Time

Drowning Dog is a rap group with something to say. Of all the remarkable things this album holds, the honest lyrics are the most prevalent. Drowning Dog is unabashedly anarchist. From the lyrics to the samples used, the music is focused around the ideas of ultimate human justice for everyone. DD wants a world where everyone is equal and poverty is no longer an issue, and offers anarchism as a way to get that. Many, if not most, songs are very sample heavy. Snippets from news interviews and other media outlets that support anarchism and anti-government practices are all over this album. The rapper herself (that's right, herself) is also very good. Her rhythm and rhymes are well constructed, and the beats are good and catchy. A great group.
