Is there a better way to finish up a midterm than having a Physics song quietly slip into your mailbox? Don't answer that, it's rhetorical. Composed of Thig Natural, Justo, and Monk Wordsmith, The Physics are one of Seattle's best hip hop groups. While supremely talented, the trio of O'Dea grads have been notably prudent throughout there career when it comes to releasing their smooth, crisp songs. Since their 2007 debut, Future Talk helped usher in the age of party rap to the 206, the trio has only released one FreEP (the critically acclaimed High Society) and one three-track download (fittingly named Three Piece). While other party rap groups such as Fresh Espresso, Mad Rad, State of The Artist, have tried to follow in the groups' footsteps, only the duo of P Smoov and Rik Rude have come close to matching The P-H-Y-S-I-C-S in quality and creativity.
2011 looks like it will be different. Thig Nat recently informed me that the trio is preparing to release their second as-of-yet-unnamed full length album in the Summer along with a late spring project, Digital Wildlife, which according to Thig, will be "comprised of songs that dont quite fit in the "hip hop" categeory, for example 'Fix You.'" Judging by "Fix You," the Physics are back making the music that Seattle fans fell in love with four years ago (see "Ready For We") and the stars are aligning for some classic hip hop in 2011 out of the upper left.
Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
