    Descendants of Cain proves an exceptional listen. Pairing Ryan’s sublime lyricism with organic production and a precisely constructed concept, the MC’s fifth project is a superb statement piece from one of rap’s most ingenious poets.

    Ka got something from an autodidact street preacher. For more resonating effect he puts together street common wisdoms and Biblical allegories.
