To say Vakill's fans have been clamoring for his third album's release would be a bit of an understatement. And there's a good reason for that beyond his skills as a lyricist who also has a strong ear for beats. Armor of God has been delayed time and time again over the past five years or so, to the point some folks were calling it the underground's version of Dr. Dre's Detox.
But Vakill's apparently readying the album, which his is first since 2006's Worst Fears Confirmed, for release on Moleman Records this June. From the looks of it, Armor of God continues the rapper's streak of picking great beats as Jake One, Panik, and Bluntologist provide the majority of the production. It's also refreshing to see that the guest features are kept to a minimum, though I can't wait to hear Crooked I, Rhymefest, Juice and Nino Bless on "Beast Ballad."
