Me Fault ’10:: Chapter Thrive & Ryan Stinson - 20 Something

Oh my, it’s almost December, and like years past, I’ve begun the process of cleaning up my herohill email and am realizing there are a number of albums that I meant to cover but didn’t get to for one reason or another. This is not an indictment of these albums, as I said, I certainly intended to cover all of them, just more a reflection of the haphazard and somewhat arbitrary manner in which I choose things to post on. So then, instead of not posting those things at all, I shall unleash a series of brief “Me Fault” (me fault being hill-slang which was originated by a hill-associate who used that when he meant “my bad”) posts from now until the end of the year.

 

Unless I’m mistaken, Chapter Thrive and Ryan Stinson both hail from Saskatchewan, and with Stinson on the beats, and Chapter Thrive handling the raps, they collaborated to create 20 Something, a concept-like album about the trials and tribulations of being in your 20′s. School, finishing school and getting a job, various relationships, lots of drinking - to an old crotchety type like myself, there might not seem to be trials nor tribulations in any of these, but I can remember that these were serious times when you’re in them.

 

Anyhoo, the album is really well produced - lots of soul influence but still hits hard enough to please those who like hard-hitting hip hop (you can actually download the instrumentals for the album here). Thrive is a solid MC and does a good job writing songs about his day to day life without ever coming off corny. All in all 20 Something is good album and I’d encourage you to check it out.
