Here’s a new single from Vanderslice featuring one of the hottest names in independent hip hop, Skrewtape. The production features an 80s synthetic vibe to it and Skrewtape lends his raspy flow credentials to the joint to create a gritty banger. The album, Smuggle Rap, drops on May 26th.
Out of all the new artists I featured around last year, Coast may be my favorite. His album, March First, was full of non stop bangers that still receives a lot of rotation here. Now we have a new cut and the announcement of a new project, #Withoutpapers, which has a ‘coming soon’ tag. I will promote this artist to the fullest as a shining light in a most stale musical world. He brings a lot of energy and skill to the mic. As an extra bonus, another artist making his name felt, Skrewtape, along with Taboo, join him on this track. Stay tuned for more.
Skrewtape is making moves and it’s easy to see why. He rides this imperial beat provided by The Wurxs with a certain type of hunger and ferocity that suggests that no one is going to stand in his way towards success. I’m always on the lookout for more material from this exceptional artists and you should share the same mindset. Very few are giving the people that grim, gritty, yet lyrical flavor.
Skrewtape is an artist that definitely deserves more exposure and recognition. He has a grimy and gritty sound that plays perfect over this Mr. Green production. I’ve been a fan of his ever since the promotion started for his debut LP, Skumbag Millionaires.
I don’t know if this song has a home yet, but Skrewtape does have a new album out called No Filter which I was unaware of and will be copping shortly.
Disclaimer: It is hard and challenging to pick 50 tracks from the thousands upon thousands that dropped this year. It is merely an attempt to list my favorite cuts of 2012. Click the links to listen to the song! I think it’s a great list. There were a lot of great songs crafted this year and I know I left off some good ones. I listened to 5,000+ tracks from 2012 alone this year, so as an artist, if you made this list you know you are on the forefront of my iTunes!
I don’t need to be sold on that Skrewtape sound. I am already a fan. One thing I have noticed is that every beat I have head him on has knocked. He has a keen ear for that dope production. This time rocks this rhythm with Miilkbone who I keep seeing doing work as of late. It’s a dope track. If you are interested in copping the album, Skumbag Millionaires, you can contact him via Twitter. It was $12 for a special digital download and a physical copy of the CD, and while I have not been able to give the entire project a listen, rest assured every track I have heard thus far is of this caliber.
Drop this album, already! C’mon SKREWTAPE! I have enjoyed single after single off of Skumbag Millionaire and I am ready to hear the full length. This is just another banger, this time laced by none other than Mr. Green. This time Tame One and Nems FYL help keep the party moving by making heads roll. Good play off verses on this one…
