Saying no will not stop you from seeing our ads, but it may make them less relevant or more repetitive.On the mic, woods is no less of a conundrum, possessed of versatile flows and an ability to not only tackle topics other artists wouldn’t dream of, but also to bring unique perspectives to the familiar ones. The fact that »Maps« is greeted with rapturous applause wherever it is heard is both justified and problematic, as it gives the impression that something is just being waved through. Weaving between poignant memoir, deadpan humor, and incandescent bursts of surrealism, Maps cements both artists’ place amongst the best of their time. It is a concept album based on the extensive touring billy woods undertook following the lifting of covid restrictions.

Reuniting with producer Kenny Segal, billy woods released Maps, an album inspired by his touring experiences, in 2023. For the first time since their epic 2019 album, "Hiding Places", billy woods teams with Kenny Segal (producer) to bring us, "Maps", billy woods' most accessible album to date. In the years since Woods has had an exceptional run of releases including a 2020 collaboration with Moor Mother and two albums under the Armand Hammer moniker.

For the first time since their epic 2019 album, Hiding Places, billy woods teams with Kenny Segal (producer) to bring us, Maps, billy woods' most accessible album to date. absolutely, having Billy on the same song as Aesop Rock + another on with Danny Brown, its something I did not expect but man am I happy it happened.

But billy woods’ new album, recorded with beat maker Kenny Segal, is the NYC underground rap icon’s most accessible record to date, following his decolonial »Aethiopes« (2022) and the autobiographical meanderings of »Church« (2022). The New York rapper works once more with Los Angeles producer Kenny Segal for what is another superb road-trip album that mixes up all the key elements you need in such a record - a good sense of humour and a hint of dread, as well as good eats and better smokes with plenty of lyrical style and great technique.

I was a bit hesitant to check it out at first, due to the album cover picture, title, and bizarre band name. It rolls over in feedback excesses, erupts with roaring trumpets and suddenly segues into gentle bebop piano loops. Segal moves effortlessly through styles but everything is underpinned with deep basslines and mean drums laid down like railroad tracks. We needed to go on other journeys, artistic and otherwise, to come back and do something fresh,” says woods.
