Insight clearly knows how to create a musical Blast Radius equal to his underappreciated debut, 2001's Updated Software 2.5. As a vocalist, though, he divides his tracks into solemn, if enthusiastic, lessons on the art of MCing, hip-hop culture, and sundry textbook chapters. For example there's "Time Frame," where he blends an impromptu history of electronics, complete with shout-outs to Thomas Edison, and a sampling of highlights in twentieth-century black music. Then there's "Inventors," on which he drops a young man into a bad dream, a world without inventions created by black scientists: "He took another step and noticed many things different/Like the filament inside of a lightbulb was missing." Unapologetically earnest, Insight envisions action-packed hip-hop through the eyes of an ascetic.
