Jeremiah Jae is one of the most intriguing figures in modern hip-hop. His cryptic rhymes and studious, low-key delivery stand in stark contrast to the bellicose bluster of many of his contemporaries, a fact exemplified by this superb EP. Musically complex and peppered with samples of obscure provenance, "The Decline Of Black Anakin" is a 20 minute blast of darkness from the mind of an MC/producer at the very top of his game. May the force be with him.
