Music Review – Whittier Alliance

81fmBVuUlAL._SL1425_

By Kristine Volovsek

Whittier Alliance is Haphduzn’s debut album produced by Dimitry Killstorm. With 14 tracks, it has a good length – just under 50 minutes. The first thoughts I had after listening to this album were something like “woah… rough life, yo…” You can tell that Haphduzn’s a little older and more mature than many other rappers starting out today. I don’t mean any disrespect by that, I just mean that instead of rapping about partying and girls he’s rapping about being sober, raising kids, and about how he’s overcome a lot of struggles. The album name is a reference to the Whittier neighborhood both Haphduzn and Dimitry Killstorm are residents of. Whittier Alliance doesn’t sugarcoat a damn thing, and cunningly blends old sounds with new. It’s reminiscent of the gangsta rap from years ago but with a lighter feel. Continue reading
