Stryfe and Marc Byrd’s album, The Last Resort drops in two weeks, meanwhile they unveil another single.  Hometown Hero features veteran emcee Rapper Big Pooh.  I have now personally heard two songs from this album, and both have been exceptional.  I love the rock and funk beat Marc Byrd creates for the track.   It creates just enough edge for the crafty lyricism.

Single You Out: YC The Cynic – More And More Remix (Ft. Rapper Big Pooh, King Mez & Chaundon)

The remix for YC The Cynic’s, More And More, includes more than just a couple of dope alternate invites.  It looks like he solicited some of the Carolina’s best.  The original song from Fall FWD is dope but I may yet prefer this “Carolina” version.  On a side note, every time I hear a King Mez guest shot, I crave to hear a solo album.  Maybe soon?
