|MH-203 Radioinactive - Pyramidi
Radioinactive's first full-length release, Pyramidi follows a string of successful compilation appearances and self released EPs. Featuring thirty tracks of trademark West Coast Workforce stylings, Pyramidi showcases Radioinactive's remarkable versatility and unique approach to writing. Whether he is commenting on the origin of modern man, telling a tall tale about stealing a thug's Pumas, or painting a picture of his father's homeland, he creates story-time for grownups with one-of-a-kind comments on the subject. Featuring production and guest appearances from Antimc, Omid, Sesquipedalian, Shovelhead, and other Los Angeles regulars, Pyramidi is a release that will only enhance Radioinactive's reputation as one of today's top avant-MCs.

|With the Mush collective having defined itself as a purveyor of the most twisted of hip-hop beats, it comes as little surprise to find the thirty tracks which make up Radioinactive's debut full-length behemoth as messed up as anything they have released to date. The lo-fi production values prove the only effective counter to the schizophrenic delivery of lyricist Radio, but even with the beats simple, they still find themselves flustered by the endless stream of crazed verbals - with the collapse of the eight-track on "Bop Nightmare" the inevitable mechanical option for the overworked machinery, lone trumpeter Todd Simon left to hustle the depths of his improvisational resources to throw together some melodics before the track is chewed into chaos. The resultant aural complexity amounts to one of the tougher listening experiences to be found in the Mush catalog, but will offer endless joy to those in search of something advanced. - All Music Guide
