This is the final video from Nutso’s, Divided Souls EP. And he ends things with a true heater from the project repping that “true” NYC sound. General Steele and Blacastan each lend some rough sixteens to the record while the beat will have you swaying the neck. This is one of those tracks that reaffirm hip hop is in good hands.

I can say, without hesitation, that Ruste Juxx has been on of the most prolific artists in the last few years. He has been featured donzens of times on other people’s projects. He has been on a a blistering pace of almost releasing two albums a year and V.I.C. is his second of 2012. His first project this year was with French producer Kyo Itachi, entitled Hardbodied Hip Hop. That album was outstanding and I thought Juxx had outdone himself with that effort but, V.I.C. expounds even further on that effort, making it one of the top notch albums of 2012. I believe one of the reasons this album shines so bright is the beat selection from producer, The Arcitype. He is able to fuse different sounds together for an album that I really hadn’t heard before and that only enables Ruste Juxx to showcase even more of what he can do with the microphone.
Damn. Computer just ate my post! Oh well. What I was saying…I am currently not one to partake in the ‘La-La-La’ but if I was to do so, this would be the song that I would bump while I was at it. The Arcitype really showing some versatility with delivering his first smoothed out production from the V.I.C. album that will be dropping on September 25th as a collaborative effort with Ruste Juxx. And speaking of versatility, Ruste Juxx shows that he can deliver the goods on a more mellow offering. Really looking forward to the album!
It’s hard to put together a doper line up than the one you will find on this track, but King Magnetic is the show stopper. He rarely gets outshined on posse cuts. If you are interested, you can cop the digi-single on Itunes.
