Though Chicago hip-hop trio The Pacifics brandishes an unwieldy acronym (People Accumulating Creative Ideas Foregoing Ignorant Conclusions of Society), they still manage come across as neighborhood types trading rhymes on the stoop. KP, Strike3, and Norman Rockwell just want to give you some food for thought. Like similar Windy City crews All Natural and Typical Cats, they bring an up-with-people vibe and diss the bling and booze mainstream. It’s nothing that hasn’t been done many times before, but just like the fried chicken on the album cover, this music is comfort food for classic hip-hop fans.
