An early favorite from Cult Classic, “HoeinInDaGaddaDaVida,” finds Denmark Vessey telling a story about Adam and Eve with Ghostdeini-level aplomb, same fictional setting, same real-world vices.
The great Denmark Vessey, of Detroit fame and mixtape brilliance, has a new joint called Cult Classic you need to hear. It’s available for purchase and download tomorrow. Produced by Scud One.
Who the illest? Depends on your perspective. Co$$ hosts this exceptional throwback-style posse cut with some of the best home-spun spitters around. Hard to decide who outdoes whom. Blu’s verse…is a powerhouse from 2:00m to 3:00m. Denmark’s (from 4:45m to 6:00m) is heavy.
Detroit is releasing amazing hip-hop music. Crown Nation, Quelle Chris, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Danny Brown and a whole roster of gritty, rocky, sooty rhymers are giving “homegrown” a place in rap music again. This socially-relevant and wholly irreverent tape by Denmark Vessey titled Don’t Drink The Kool Aid will be in the rotation regularly through the fall (courtesy DJ House Shoes and Dirty Science). Do yourself a favor, and play.
