P-Money - 'Everything'


By Joachim Hackshaw

Artist: P-Money
Album: Everything
Genre: Hip Hop
Rating: 3/5

I couldn't move over the summer without hearing the title track from P-Money's latest album.


Having seen our Kiwi super producer piggyback a man in the video for Everything a few dozen times, I already had a fair idea of the new direction P-Money was heading in.


There is indeed quite a bit more house music on Everything than you would have ever expected to hear after P-Money's previous two albums. And the early appearance of Vince Harder serves as a fair preview of what to expect from the album, with the singer appearing on seven of the album's 13 tracks. With Mr Harder being an ever present force on the album, it's no surprise to hear some of the R'n'B flavour coming through as well.


The hip hop is still there with the Dirty Records family turning out in force for Big Things Pt2 and Scribe also continues his recovery from "second album syndrome" nicely on Green Light.


The aforementioned collection of MCs, David Dallas, PNC and The Crusader himself, all show some previously unseen versatility, by maintaining their usual quality while rapping over a few numbers at a higher tempo than what they would be accustomed to.


While perfectly timed to pull at your patriotic heart strings in this 10th NZ Music Month, it's a bit of a shame this record has come out as we approach winter, as it is very much the lighthearted listen you would be looking for during the summer months.


I'm a little unsure if Everything will find its way into the classics section of my music collection, but for now, it's a nice, fun-loving style listen.
