Single You Out: Chuck N Lock – Upper Decker

Chuck N Lock have got a new joint out, Upper Decker produced by Sproot, and the results are dope as to be expected. The emcees have that distinctive flow and lyricism that differentiates them from the flock and their style shines over this ethereal production.

I am pretty sure that these guys have a new project out. I am not sure about the when, but I’m surely going to find out.

Even the sweetest victories can have a bad after taste

Single You Out: Chuck N Lock – Flying Dutchman

More Chuck N Lock, you sa y? Yes please! The duo is back with some poetic introspectiveness over some horns from producer, Ecto 84. The beat really allows you to be entranced by the lyricism and pick up on all the metaphorical nuances. Chuck N Lock have a way of phrasing things that make listeners have “aha” moments. They are crafty lyriciststs. For instance…

“I realize I want a lot in life, and not my lot in life”

“I want to be a book worm, not a larva in a kindle.”

Single You Out: Chuck N Lock – Tomorrow Never Dies

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!

Chuck N Lock – Phobias (2019)

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.

2018: Best EPs

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.

Chuck-N-Lock – Farm To Table (prod. by Farma Beats) 2018

a1507676341_10

Artist:  Chuck-N-Lock x Farma Beats

Album:  Farm To Table 

Tracklisting:

  1. Chopping Block
  2. Monsanto
  3. Crop Circles
  4. Wheat Threshers
  5. Greenhouse Effect (ft. Sleep Sinatra)

Note:

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!
