Chuck N Lock has been a mainstay on the site for a couple of years now. And now they have a ‘Name Your Own Price’ (Centrallia) album up on Bandcamp and I suggest you pick that up and contribute to the cause. These guys are too talented to fly under your radar. This my friends is the very definition of a win!
The Famous Last Words project from Chuck N Lock has been out for about a month now, but this is my first time giving it a listen and I knew it was going to be good…but this is pretty damn incredible. At $30 a scoop I was a little incredulous, but thought I def could support the art. Glad I did. The music and sound in general is unique while still sounding familiar if that makes sense. The dexterity with words is unparalleled with their contemporaries.
And while Tomorrow Never Dies isn’t exactly my favorite track from the project, it’s still really damn good and illustrates that distinguishing sound. Check the project!
Making my triumphant return to blogging after a terrible hiatus that involved the death of my father, I bring you a legitimate headcracker with Chuck N Lock’s EP, Phobias, produced by Hobgoblin. This is is a legitimate vicious piece of work.
I was originally only going to post a single but then realized that the song Geraniums, could not be singled out by itself. So I am going to showcase the whole bloody project. You’ve got Chuck N Lock’s clever and witty lyricism coupled with the notorious head not effect of producer Hobgoblin.
This is dope. Tell me I am wrong.
So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018. I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that. However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider. In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera. This was simply a matter of personal preference. I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.
Album: Farm To Table
- Chopping Block
- Crop Circles
- Wheat Threshers
- Greenhouse Effect (ft. Sleep Sinatra)
Chuck-N-Lock just dropped a project with producer Farma Beats entitled Farm To Table, and the project definitely deserves some shine as it is impeccably executed. My favorite track is Monsanto where the duo channels their inner villains over an equally villainous production from Farma. The lyricism is clever and the beats bang. That always means a win!
…Break it down up, the amount of the yield / I’m like the Scarecrow out-standing in his field
But really all five songs are incredibly nice. They all have a different tempo and vibe to them but there is certainly consistency in dopeness
Check their new!
Here is some smart and dope hip hop music from Chuck N Lock that I stumbled across and thought it only proper to share. The production is super mellow and chill, which allows you to focus on some really great lyricism. The flows are so natural and the lines are smart and at times crafty. I think you are going to like this.
This is my favorite cut off of the short but dope, Blue Shell Theory.
