The Justus League continues to grow. The newest edition to the North Carolina super group is the multi-talented Edgar Allen Floe. Just as Phonte and Big Pooh, Edgar draws on the everyday occurrences of life for his inspiration. No overblown tales - just real music. True Links - a nine track EP - is another familiar chapter in the JL saga. With production from 9th Wonder and Khrysis, among others, the album may not break any new ground, but its enjoyable nevertheless.

Lyrically, Edgar Allen Floe is one of the tightest members of the Justus League. He combines intelligent lyricism with conceptual material, making for an album full of depth and creativity. "I For An I" is a trip into Floe's "thought process," as he addresses a variety of issues, such as the current state of Hip Hop. "Faith In Love" finds Floe riding 9th's vintage drums and soulful loop with ease, as he asks to "kill the hate, for Hip Hop's sake." While the production is solid on True Links, fans will definitely come away feeling as if they have been here before. If you have heard one Justus League album, then you can already imagine what the production sounds like. While not a bad thing, efforts such as "Back In Time" (Khrysis' sloppy drums) and "The Formula 2005" fail to stand up to the better beats on the album.

Nevertheless, True Links is a solid outing for Edgar Allen Floe that proves he is one of the most talented lyricists in the Justus League.
