Little Brother - "The Minstrel Show" (CD)

You know, at my age, I never expected to warm up to rap "music". They speak so fast and sometimes the music is just so loud that i can't understand what's going on. My grandson gave me this Little Brother CD confidently promising that it didn't fall into the same category as the circus music you often hear on the radio. Surprisingly, I like it. There's real artistry here and the underlying music ("beats" they call it) is creative and soulful. This has me wondering if this is what I've been missing all along or if this Little Brother is somehow an anamoly.
