Contrary to Sade, sometimes it truly is as good as the first time-which is a smartass way of saying that the RJD2 and Blueprint team-up known as Soul Position is paying off quick-style. Blueprint’s riotous rap on “I Need My Minutes” will provoke laughter in remembrance of the equally hilarious but truth-speaking “Fuckajob” (off their last effort, 8 Million Stories), and RJ’s production is as diverse and head-bob-inducing as ever. Like Blueprint explains on the release’s second track, “No Gimmicks,” Soul Position is invested in beating the shit out of mediocre hip-hop.
