MC/Producer/DJ J-Live has successfully entertained us for over 15 years and is releasing his fifth album, S.P.T.A. which will be preceded by his Undivided Attention EP November 2nd, 2010. Over the course of his four studio albums, J-Live has established a standard that he rarely deviates from: incessant, dope beats and witty, intricate rhymes. This EP is no different, although Undivided Attention includes production by others besides The Triple Threat; Nicolay, Floyd the Locsmif, SMKA and newcomer Korede help handle the beat machine duties. Never a slouch on the mic, J-Live rocks well throughout the album and especially when verbally tag teaming your eardrums with Homeboy Sandman on Fitness. The only time the EP falters is when J-Live relinquishes the mic to 3TP newcomer, Oddy Gato on Calculations. As the final song on an overwhelmingly great EP, Oddy Gato’s social commentary over a J-Live beat is disappointing. However, my anticipation for S.P.T.A. remains high and once you wrap your ears around this EP, you’ll understand why.
