If you're looking for mean, gross, repugnant rap music, look no further than the Army Of The Pharaohs. Since their formation, they have put out nothing but explicit hip hop with crafty, complex lyricism. Their fourth LP, In Death Reborn, offers more of the group's trademark music. This collective, started by the Jedi Mind Tricks clan, have a taste for brutal retribution, and their energy and material prove this fact. The best part of this 2014 album is arguably the smart lyrical workings in the songs. They are packed with intelligent metaphors, flawless delivery, and well thought up rhymes. There are few if any surprises on the album, but the vast vocabulary in the rhymes make it worth a listen.
