Jedi Mind Tricks - A History Of Violence
Stoupe's sprawling soundscapes could score a Genghis Khan biopic, and with Vinnie swinging his axe at everything in sight he rides along in stride
There is plenty to love and plenty to hate about Jedi Mind Tricks' unmistakable brand of hardcore Hip Hop. Over the course of 12 years and five LPs, Vinnie Paz and Stoupe have dished out their fair share of intense, M.O.P.-esque battle cries over sweeping, epic production. But for every fan who loves their rugged never smooth stylings, there are those who can't bear Vinnie's clumsy religious rhetoric, unending contradictions, and repetitive brute force battle raps.
