Short Fuze & Nasa 's debut LP "Lobotomy Music" was Short Fuze's first solo album and was a long time in the making. It took a life time actually. "Lobotomy Music" is truly one man's story navigating life's ups and downs. It's proof that every person's story on Earth can be defined as "epic". Epic is exactly what "Lobotomy Music" is, in it's scope lyrically as well as the way it's been produced and assembled by Short Fuze's Producer Nasa. True stories of life & death, good & evil, youth & wisdom are laid out over the heavy NYC progressive rap sound you've come to know from Uncommon Records. "Lobotomy Music" grabs you from the first sound you hear and holds you through the length of it's journey. If it doesn't, you haven't lived.
Short Fuze's unique flow combined with his exceptional lyrical abilities will leave you hearing more and listening less, this will never be considered background music due to that. Prepare yourself to stop what you're doing and lend your ear to Short Fuze for the length of "Lobotomy Music".
Shortly after completing Lobotomy Music, Short Fuze & Nasa wanted to get right back to work. Originally that work was to take the form of a maxi-single to follow up their debut album, but the work flowed so freely it grew into it's own full fledged EP project - Toxicology Music. Short Fuze describes the difference between Lobotomy & Toxicology by saying that with Toxicology he wanted to round up a bunch of his friends to whoop people's asses with hardcore hip-hop. Where as Lobotomy was a lot more introspective. The one thing the two projects share is the heavy hand of Nasa's production as it continues to reclaim New York's place among the Progressive Underground. This time around on Toxicology you hear (Nasa's on the mic alter ego) jumping on all the new tracks along side Short Fuze.
In that group of friends Short Fuze mentioned, he assembled his long time collaborators, Taiyamo Denku and Augury from W.A.S.T.E.L.A.N.D.S. But also brought together the production talents of Willie Green, Megabusive, Lou Cypher and Dynamo (for a bonus cut on Bandcamp).
Twice within one year's time, Short Fuze & Nasa have put together fully realized albums. The duo is shaping up to be that sort of rare MC/producer team that you want more and more albums from and on each album they exceed your expectations. But until that next album comes out, they have provided us with a solid chunk of music to digest between "Lobotomy Music" and "Toxicology Music". Sit back press play and enjoy the quality hip hop. Once you are done with that, press play again.
