Rip Slyme – Star Review

At one point this year, I thought Rip Slyme had run it’s course with members going off and doing their own thing. Star was a surprise release because I didn’t hear anything about it until after it had dropped into stores.

I do think that Star is a little weaker from other albums. They rely on familiar styles and while other releases had a good amount of experimentation, Star is lacking that.

Rip Slyme are on top of the heap for Japanese hip-hop, so don’t think the album is entirely worthless. It is still very good, but I was hoping that the group would do something a little different again.
