Iame "Lightfighter"

Expanding the Backpack, 9/13/10

This is late news, but I was listening to this legally free album by Iame on my way to work today and forgot that it has some joints worth peeping on it. For those who don't know Iame, he's one of the core members of the Northwest hip hop group Sandpeople as well as a member of Oldominion (who are having a great 2010, I might add). He's released two proper full lengths in the last few years, "Noise Complaints" and "I Am My Enemy," produced by Smoke of Oldominion and Sapient of Sandpeople respectively. This free "Lightfighter" album he's offering is apparently material that was recorded between the two albums, and features production by Smoke, Sapient, Zebulan Dak, $imple, and Iame himself. As is to be expected of a legally free album, it ain't as solid as his previous albums, but it is fairly strong for a freebie and features some pretty good stand-out songs. The tracks "Here to Stay," "Very Hip Hop" and "Momentary Forever" come to mind in particular. You can download the album via Mediafire couteousy of Iame's record label, Heaven Noise Recordings.
