[Review] Tony “Prone” Patagonia – Paradox of a Mastermind

Prone7 Oddities is a record label in Chicago that represents and respects the true essence of hip hop from the b-boy to the graffiti artist to deep lyricism. 7oddz young gunner Prone recently dropped his latest album, Paradox of a Mastermind but it could’ve been re-titled, No Weak Shit. From out the gate, on Impractical Tactical, prone dismisses current trends and commercialism opting for a more the vintage sound of hip hop, dope rhymes, dope beats, no filler. French producer, Prone MicroFaune aka DaBeatMurder is as much of a star on Paradox of a Mastermind, laying down an absolutely sinister and haunting production on Nameless featuring fellow 7oddz member, Pozlyrix.  It’s a family affair through the 12 track, 30 minute album, even featuring 7 Oddities CEO and head of production, Dreamtek who drops a verse on Infected Direction. Prone never steers off course, aiming to preserve any remaining authenticity left in hip hop, that might of worn off. Prone spreads his wings and his words from Chicago to France on Say What I See, one of the strongest solo songs on Paradox. Paradox of a Mind is a step up from Prone’s last record, Dodging Traffic and leaves you wondering what he’ll do next.
