The Wrecking Crew has a compilation project dropping on June 4th, called Steel’s Kitchen. This is the first offering from that project. PremRock and Curly Castro (ShrapKnel) are joined by Zilla Rocca on the mic as their bars intermingle with an abstract production from DOOF. This is not for the faint of heart, so put your listening caps on for this one!
Zilla Rocca – Make the Sickness, Sell the Cure (ft. Curly Castro) (Video)
From the highly acclaimed album, Future Former Rapper, Zilla Rocca releases the visual for his track, Make The Sickness, Sell The Cure, featuring the incomparable Curly Castro dropping some bars and providing the chorus. Not everyone is going to get this song, and if you don’t…then it’s not for you. I think you have to be from a certain era to understand what is meant by “….my hip-hop is dead“.
Check out the album, and also be aware that Curly Castro’s project, Tosh, drops this coming Friday.
Curly Castro x Zilla Rocca – Billy Batts (Video)
This is my favorite track off of Curly Castro and Zilla Rocca’s Grift Company EP which dropped in April. Really glad they gave it the video treatment. The production for the track is absolute bananas and Castro and Rocca have a commanding presence on the mic along with excellent chemistry.
Single You Out: Career Crooks – Good Luck With That
Zilla Rocca and Small Professor are back at it as the group Career Crooks. Rocca promised some new music from the camp this year and here we are. I am much obliged to share. Props for the Mike Miller line.
The album drops May 19th and you should be prepared for that. The camp always keeps it interesting and fresh.
Curly Castro – Brody (2014)
Artist: Curly Castro
Album: Brody EP
1. Going Back To London
2. All Bets Are Off (ft. Zilla Rocca and Has-Lo)
3. Livery (ft. Castle)
4. David Rodigan (ft. Hubbs and Armand Hammer)
5. A Wake
6. Daisy Swallowed A Diamond
Curly Castro offers the world a little something different with his latest release, Brody. The EP is short and succinct but proves the point that just because the project is short on run time doesn’t mean that it runs short on character. Now, I will say that if you are not familiar with the movie, Snatch, you may have to watch that first before you start indulging in this release. The creativity for Brody stems from Castro and company using the characters and storyline from Snatch in the story of this EP. So being able to truly appreciate this EP requires a little study in film. That’s not to say that you can’t just appreciate the music for music’s sake but you will miss some of the creativity. I digress.
Single You Out: Curly Castro – All Bets Are Off (ft. Zilla Rocca & Has-Lo) (prod. by Zilla Roca)
The Wrecking Crew represents on this Curly Castro single from his (now out) project, Brody. Zilla Rocca laces the camp with something extra funky and some scathing drums. And the crew is not unfamiliar to rocking over said production, the each contribute dope verses to complete the trifecta.
Single You Out: Has-Lo – Jason Statham
Wrecking Crew – Scallops (Official Video)
Curly Castro always struck me as the clairvoyant one of the team. Haha. In all seriousness, it’s a captivating video from Rocca, Castro, and Has-Lo to go along with a dope song from an even doper conceptual project, Wu-Tang Pulp.
Single You Out: Wrecking Crew (Has-Lo x Zilla Rocca x Curly Castro) – Pulp Banga 101
Small Professor put together a banging beat for this joint. I love it. Each emcee proves very worthy to ride this beat. The Wrecking Crew also feature Boogieman Dela and David Little on this track. I think you will all enjoy.
