Taking over the airwaves of BBC Radio 1 one of Detroit's most gifted lyricists Lazarus delivers bar after bar for the fans overseas! DJ Limelight lets the beat drop on some "illmatic" flavor & I admit there are few emcees I feel whom can finesse this classic instrumental. Laz with bars like "You live your life for the greed, I live my life of glutton, the way I eat these emcees it's like english muffins." proves he's in that minuscule bracket. Forget that fact that Laz tears up this freestyle though & let me tell you this.... A couple days ago I got blessed with an early listen of #DecapitationChamber a record from the Lazarus/Wu-Tang studio session a few weeks back & let's just say it's one of hardest records of the calendar year. Stay tuned to DetroitRap.com to hear it as soon as it arrives! - COMMi$$ION
New York emcee Bumpy Knuckles continues an exhilarating year of hip hop for listeners who hunger more substance in their raps! With "Pop Duke, Volume One" a backdrop of classic hip hop production straight from the boards of mainstay producer NOTTZ lays the pathfor Bumpy Knuckles to address with lyrical finesse. Limited to ten records, the project escapes the curse of filler and embraces a team of legendary features to enhance Bumpy Knuckles already raw, authentic flow on an album that plays perfectly front to back. Detroit's very own V Stylez & BIG GOV represent doing justice to "In Love With The Game" over the screeching sounds of one of NOTTZ hardest cuts on the project. Beyond that Chuck D, Kool G Rap, Biz Markie, Raheem DaVaughn, Kuye Mason & Lil Fame provide an impressive team of features flexing in their own respective ways. Before Pop Duke closes "Ol Morning" is a standout track as Bumpy displays his storytelling abilities over Nottz keys primed for a story to tell in one of my favorite records of the year. All in all, the short but consistent effort contributes yet another stellar album for 2018 hip hop well leaving you anxious for a Volume Two. -
