Moving on from Platinum Pied Pipers’ Triple P (2005), Robert O’Bryant (a.k.a. Waajeed) gathers Tiombe Lockhart, Invincible, Ta’Raach, and material from the late J Dilla for his latest album, The War. “The Overtaking” features ominous beat arrangements, slow, suspense-building guitars, and Lockhart on vocals.
