I listened to Lateb’s album, Wisdom and Ignorance. I thought the album was pretty good as a whole, but this track is absolutely banging. You have to give Matty Trump a shout out for the work behind the boards. It has been a while since I have heard Canibus drop a verse as good as the one he does on this joint. Amadeus The Stampede always brings some hard bars to the table. He’s a hard man to outshine on a track. Overall this joint gets a lot of love in the rotation. If you like it, make sure you check out Lateb’s album by clicking the link.
I awoke this morning to Leedz putting it in the air via Twitter that eight of the albums/mixtapes put out on his label were being offered free. I am assuming this is a recent development, though I could certainly be wrong. I know I paid good money for them and now you can DL some of them without spending a dime. These releases are chocked full of dope beats and raw lyricism. You are going to find something among the collection that you will love. Heck, I love most of them. My favorites of the bunch are Rite Hook’s E.ye A.ssume D.amage and the Write Off Mixtapes Vol.1 and 2. You will see tons of guest shots on these releases, including Slaine, Amadeus The Stampede, Reef The Lost Cause, J The S, Ill Bill and many more. I realize this is not an ‘artist’ discography so to speak but I wouldn’t sleep on this collection if I were you! Also, make sure you remember to drop some dollars on one of these artist’s shows or retail products if you like what you hear. It’s essential to contribute financially when capable. Meanwhile, enjoy….
You can click the cover of the particular album you wanted to check out and be linked to the Bandcamp site where you can stream the music to see if it’s for you, but for my part it is a no brainer: Pick them all up!
