Busdriver - Temporary Forever
Temporary Forever is the breakthrough record by Busdriver that laid out a serpentine path for what the rap music of Los Angeles would become in the years to come. Hurling straight out of Project Blowed with an uncompromising dexterous style, this record is a madcap journey into the mind and life of hip-hop's most eccentric introvert.
The standout track, Imaginary Places, is still considered one of the more incredible performances ever captured on a rap record. Recorded and mixed by Low End Theory's Daddy Kev; who would go on to be the engineer for Flying Lotus, Jonwayne and the entire of the beat scene in Los Angeles, the album is a touchstone in the careers of some of the more daring artists in rap's ill-defined left-field.
