Omer Saar /THE GREEN ALBUM
The music industry is changing and only those who know how to adapt will survive. Since the whole napster fiasco album sales have been dropping, why pay when you can download right? Some artist adapted well to this new era, others even used it to their advantage, Dj Mighty Mouse comes to mind with The Gray Album, which is an amalgamation on The Beatles’s White Album and Jay-Z’s Black album.
Omer Saar did the same thing; The Green Album is a mixture of some of Al Green’s classic material with mc’s like Mf Doom, Mos Def, Method Man, The Pharcyde, Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls and others. From the intro to the last song I was amazed how the Al Green melodies worked well on the hip-hop level. Keep in mind that this is not a budgeted project so I was really impressed with the final material. Some songs work better then others but it’s a strong album, a nice soundtrack to this summer.
Omer Saar’s green album is the proof that the Internet can be use to create and this product is an incredible piece of self-promotion.
