You can't just commandeer a Super Chron hovercraft and expect to understand New York's Flight Brothers. So I'll guide you through their latest inspired conceptual labyrinth, Cape Verde. The first thing you must do is clear the area of rap pedestrians who might interrupt. As annoying as it is when chumps yap over Doom and Ghostface, I promise it will only worsen as Billy Woods and Priviledge lead you through their daily television regimen Talk Soup–style, with conceptual piñatas like "B More" and "42nd Street." Your next move is to roast a tampon-sized spliff. Epic cuts like "Double Jeopardy" and "Reggie Miller" can massage a blunted melon through the happy ending, whereas sober minds couldn't likely make much sense of before-and-after riffs like "Kim Jong Illmatic" and Boo Radley references in rap music. Finally and most important: after you become so enamored of soul smackers like "Travailler" and pop political polemics like "No Spin Zone" that you just have to spread the word, try not to be too disappointed when your friends prove too stupid or stubborn to keep quiet and strap in for the ride.
