The rapper — whose recent listening runs from Bilal to Björk — may want to feed her kids, but her rhymes reflect a keen awareness that one day they'll want more than just the next meal. To quote Tourey in "Total Eclipse," the most recently written song on the album, "They said I should dumb it down, appeal to my audience, apparently we like our rap with no substance, but then I'm looking out into the crowd, and I'm seeing me, a sea full of honeys quietly thanking me, ’cause we support, and I'm just tryin' to find a healthy balance, intellect toes the line, introduces a new challenge."
Despite the distance between their locales, Moon and Tourey come together on Gumbo to serve up an album full of adventurous production and rhymes for the mind, no matter how far that consciousness has to travel. Moon said, "At the end of the day, good food tastes good — wherever you go in the world." SFBG
