Croup and Supastition continue to build off of their recent collaborative EP, Honest Living. The Declaration will however make it onto Croup’s upcoming album, Circles. The project will drop on April 29th which is just around the corner. Until then you can take Supastition’s bars as gold…this is a statement piece!
Supastition’s Honest Living which is entirely produced by Croup is due out on Tuesday, but to wt one’s appetite, he released the single, Eardrum. One of the things I have always liked about Supa is his candid demeanor and view points intertwined with an incredible refined talent to rock mics. He is the people’s emcee.

I remember when I was told that Supastition was retiring as an emcee. I was demoralized. I thought to myself that he was a casualty of an unsupportive audience got tired of not being paid for the quality of his work. I was fed up with “fans” of hip hop. It was at that point that I started working more vigilantly on getting this blog started. I wanted to promote dope hip hop artists and push the fan base to contribute to the art they so love and enjoy. In essence Supastition is literally a major factor as to why I am typing this now.
Praverb the Wyse links up with Croup once again to provide you a smooth, introspective track. Praverb is the king of introspection in my mind. He takes ‘every man’ concepts and sets them to rhyme and rhythm to make great music. His first verse regarding being a father is especially poignant and well thought out.
If Praverb isn’t a staple in your iTunes collection yet…make room!
There may not be a more appropriately named song this year. Simple, yet well earned. Croup has put together a top ten production this year, while Praverb and Don Streat put axe to grindstone creating sharp verses (you like that one don’t you.) I like the idea of this, ‘Animal Pak’ group. A good combination that is going to turn a lot of heads.
