    Haram feels like the truest representation what they set out to do at the start of their journey as a duo. As a result, it finds them asking the questions everyone is avoiding.

    In many ways a critique of the legacy of slavery and colonialism, Haram possesses a manic, catastrophic atmosphere.

    Colored by the Alchemist’s palette, Haram offers another perspective of New York City’s hard heart, rooted in ruminations on power and how it’s wielded. These are the spiritual descendants of Def Jux, rappers that not only embrace the darkness, but wear it as a protective cloak.

    The best tracks on 'Haram' come together with crooked production that twitches with sharp samples and cuts, and AH’s billy woods and Elucid filling the space with pointed flows.

    Underground duo Armand Hammer teams up with profilic Beverly HIlls producer The Alchemist to produce the best hip hop album of 2021 so far.Underground duo Armand Hammer teams up with profilic Beverly HIlls producer The Alchemist to produce the best hip hop album of 2021 so far. The dark colonialism-anger charged theme of the duo's verses pairs well with the ever-consistent Alchemist beats, though I did think some of their rhymes were over-crytical. Not for the mainstream, but still a good album Expand
