BPos "Higher" from Positive Beings (One League Entertainment, 2014)
Bay Area hip-hop crew BPos live up to their name of BPos [be positive] with their latest release Positive Beings which has been selling well at the two Bay Area Amoeba stores since its recent release. The new album, whose theme is all about choosing the positive path in life and working towards living life a positive human being -rather than a negative one. It is the expanding San Francisco based hip-hop's crew (now five members strong) fifth full-length release, featuring new member female rapper/vocalist Gyrl Ab'Strakt.
Their strongest to date it is once again released via their own indie label One League Entertainment. Positive Beings is BPos' first ablum in two years and the first release since their critically acclaimed Pos Tapes: The Album. In addition to its overriding theme of positivity that the album delivers the new release is also constructed like a radio broadcast from a fictional station with mic breaks (drops) throughout from longtime Bay Area hip-hop DJs like Kevvy Kev and this Amoeblogger. The group say that anyone who even casually listens to their new album, which since its recent release has also been garnering airplay across the country, will hear its message loud and clear- that "We are all positive beings." This week I caught up with the BPos' Goodword to have him give the Amoeblog some more insights into his group's latest release that includes a hidden track featuring none other than Masta Ace and others.
