ALBUM REVIEW

Gabriel Teodros & AirMe

Children of The Dragon

Released May 2014

Gabriel Teodros’ new album, produced entirely by AirMe, is a mature, restrained, and beautiful record. It’s his most solid work to date, pushing hip-hop forward as few can. I hadn’t heard about this release until only a couple nights ago. Since then, I’ve been enjoying this surprise immensely. For those familiar with this particular Seattle cat, suffice to say it won’t disappoint; for those new to Mr. Teodros, it’s a perfect place to jump in. His work has always demonstrated a passion for the art like few others, and here it shines distilled and crystal clear. Truly, this is a work of beauty.
