(self-released)

I suppose that Wishing You A Very Happy Christmas and New Year counts as a holiday album, although that relationship is tenuous as such. Again, Dr. Dundiff serves as a curator to some of the finest emcees in the city, cultivating a righteous ensemble of talent and like-minds. The production is smooth as silk and imminently listenable. That’s the beauty of what Dundiff does and does so well — he galvanizes Louisville hip-hop into a cohesive whole, a unit of unstoppable force that bobs and weaves like the pros that they are. Fuck whatever you might have heard about the scene being dead here — Dundiff and Friends are proof positive that it’s not just alive, but crucial.
