THEESatisfaction - awE naturalE
"Leave your face at the door. Turn off your swag and check your bag."
So starts the amazing track "QueenS" on THEESatisfaction’s debut album AweNaturale. In a time where Hip-Hop is obsessed with who you are and how much swag you have, THEESatisfaction go against the grain. By evoking the spirit of the Native Tongues Crew (De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest,etc.) they present modern ideas in a palpable way. With a combination of jazz, soul, amazing singing and powerful rapping the duo of Stas and Cat make thought provoking songs. They push forward ideas of gender, humanity, spirituality and much more. Stand out tracks include the aforementioned "QueenS", "Earthseed", and "Needs". The production on the album is top notch and has a great flow; it's a good addition to any Hip-Hop collection.
