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.


 
Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
