Picking up where the previous instalment Realities of Life left off, Outside Looking In sees Marsh Farm’s finest in top form, doing what he does best…honest, open, reality based rap music. You’ll find no fake gangster-posturing here, no tall tales of wealth and jewels, just a cohesive album of truth based music. A healthy dose of musical honesty in fact!
It sees Life in a more mature mode too. Assured raps that touch on various, pretty darn relevant subjects in these days and times. And while it may be regarded in some quarters, as passé to speak out against subjects such as the war, racism and the prison system (witness the recent backlash against the likes of Al Gore, Michael Moore and Mark Thomas etc), Life believes that music should remain a vessel for change, for protest. And while his music acts as an outlet for his views, his words are backed by actual experience, and illustrated by his collaborative work with Amnesty International, Peace Not War and Love Music, Hate Racism.
As before, long-time friend, PhiLifeCypher cohort and DJ: Nappa produces the entire album. His almost telepathic working relationship with Life again yields devastatingly effective results. His love for funk, soul, prog-rock, reggae and the like really shines through over the 20 tracks, as he, again comes up with goods, delivering a wide selection of backdrops for Life’s frenetic delivery. The music remains hard-hitting and, in the traditions of hip-hop…raw! Yet at the same time there is an undeniably soulful, emotional edge to the beats, with the end result, a truly potent musical brew!
And not content with just producing the album, Nappa also gets his chance to shine on a solo-level (with the help of Mr Thing who pitches in with two beats) on Disc 2: Life Beat Tape, a collection of 28 tracks of classic, re-worked and exclusive Life instrumental material. The aim was to give Nappa a platform to display his skills and to offer a little something extra to the fans that have supported the music over the years
