Pimp-T-CD Review-Power Is Mindful Peace
ECMA 2003 Nominated-Urban Category
By John Gavin, Wednesday, January 15, 2003


A great and interesting hip-hop rap CD has been released by Troy Neilson ASPimpTCDPictPowerIsMindfulPeace.jpg from Fredericton, New Brunswick. The CD entitled, Power is Mindful Peace, has been nominated for an ECMA 2003 in the Urban Recording of the Year category. Troy goes by the name, PIMP-T, which means, Power is Mindful Peace and the T is for Troy. This 2000 Urban X-Posure top-five award nominee pokes fun at the current state of hip-hop with his all-for-fun pimpin side.

The CD is produced by a posse of likeminded cohorts, and Pimp-T gives us a disc of raps and beats full of the positive, with the message that there's power in peaceful actions...the beats are right-on, and so is the sentiment says Bob Mersereau, from the Telegraph Journal & CBC Journalist.

Listening to this CD, one gets wrapped up with the notes and topical subjects. It sounds like fun, and has a different approach to music. The CD sounds like a soundtrack rather than a solo artist's debut album. With this in mind, Pimp-T had a variety of Producers contributing to the album. The sound-track-esqueM feel can also be attributed to the diverse content.

He chose a variety of topics for the songs on the CD like, song for his mother, a simple petty crime, the innocence of mind, caters to ladies, party people and a bad mood song. Here are some song titles: Intro-Tha PimpT Thene-Petty Crime-Hippity Hop Feat-Power is Mindful Peace-Bump-N-Grind Fiend-Get Yo Groove On-Party Slam feat-Moma and six more. For all the hip-hop rap fans, this CD will certainly be a winner and perhaps even attract all those non-rap fans. To purchase this fine CD, click in the above posted website & e-mail addresses.
