“Emanuel’s poetic tones inform the listener of the struggles one takes when attempting to create beauty out of decades of decay. It is obvious he has studied past voices and thus been able to craft a unique sense of phrasing which is a synthesis of masterful wordplay and a deep sense of musicality.”

—Reg E. Gaines, Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk
