THE CHAMBER

Nelson El 

THE CHAMBER

In his bio, Nelson El writes that in 1996 he converted "from a life of crime to a life divine." Both elements are evident in his intriguing release The Chamber, which references spirituality alongside lyrics that remind listeners you're dealing with killers. Although there's a gangsta lean to The Chamber, Nelson El impressively manages to spin his gunplay-laced verses without profanity. The steady, bass-heavy beats are tight throughout the album, while Nelson El's flow occasionally brings to mind Tupac, especially on "My Angel," a touching ode to his mother. By keeping things clean while adding no pop polish, this lyricist has created one of the few releases that can be at once street-tested and parent-approved.
