There aren’t many who can compare accomplishments that Hilltop Hoods have achieved over their musical career, and that particular statement is extended by the release of the Australian Hip-Hop group’s sixth studio album “Drinking from the Sun”. The thirteen-track LP is the group’s latest offering, and debuted at #1 in the Australian Album Chart, which was the third consecutive Hilltop Hoods album to do so. Internationally known AND loved, Hilltop Hoods have once again given fans a master class in rap music, and surely another album that will stand the test of time.
The lead single “I Love It” features Sia Furler and really kicked off promotion for the album towards the end of 2011. Since then we’ve head singles “The Underground” featuring Solo and Classified, and the very popular “Speaking in Tongues” with Chali 2na. The guest appearances on the album were a perfect pick, and each artist involved has heavily contributed towards creating an excellent finished product. Another notable feature was Black Thought of The Roots on the track “Living in Bunkers”. We can’t for one second discredit Hilltop Hoods for masterminding the construction of the album and their own contribution, with or without the guest appearances we’re still listening to an album that’s head and shoulders above a LOT of other commercial releases.
