THE CREST
SKEPTIK
UPRISING

Midwest rapping brother duo The Crest have been at it since 1997, but SKEPTIK is the outfit’s first taste of national exposure. Like most rap albums, a slew of guests lending perspectives adorn these 18 tracks, but the real spotlight shines on Jack Cracker and AD, whose rhyme schemes and verbal barrages are reminiscent of a certain other white rapper that hails from Detroit. Dropping knowledge on social and political topics that range from the Iraqi War to corporate America’s stranglehold on media and big business, The Crest’s lyrical flow may be a far cry away from good times rhymes, but the backbeat behind it all makes your head bob and your body move, even though you’re getting educated in the process.
