MUST LISTEN

Bumpy Knuckles Wreaks Havoc Over Nottz Production "Pop Duke Volume One".

Published

on

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 path for 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 VStylez & 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. – COMMi$$ION

Hip Hop seems to be the only genre that seems to continuously try to place an age cap on it.
Over the years more artists have shown and proved that “aging out” didn’t exist in their worlds.
Detroit Legend  Miz Korona recently shows she’s no different on her new release “42” feat. heavy wordplay from Legendary MC Guilty Simpson over even heavier production by 14KT.
“Honestly the song came about after commenting under a post from DJ House shoes saying he didn’t want people rapping over his beats without his approval.” “I’ve known Shoes for years so I jokingly said I’m rapping over all that shit  and some random guy responded like “Don’t wit yo old ass” that immediately struck a nerve and I was on go from there.”

Trick Trick drops a classic. “ELEMELEM” New Album

Published

The Big Homie Trick Trick. We tend to listen to and enjoy what we can relate to. The respect alone that Trick Trick has earned over his long career should motivate any fan of Detroit music young or old to give this new project a listen. If your under the age of 30 i encourage you to soak up all the game you can. “Cut It Out” brings truths to things we’ve thought but never questioned. If you grew up on the streets of Detroit you can’t help but see yourself in the lyrical display over the orchestrated musical bed that you could imagine the great Isaac Hayes lending a verse.

On ZiGGaTTa finds Trick Trick reflects back on where life was at a young age “Found Love in the art of hip hop cause it was Def, Run D and J gave me sumn to focus on”  When i tell you Scarface himself could not have touched Trick Trick on this track it’s no CAP. This is a must listen.

“What Part of the Game” features Bumpy Knuckles on one of the hottest tracks on the project. I immediately went to see who cooked this beat up. Maybe we will find out in a interview.  “There are Rules, We survive by following our Rules” The streets are out of control, pure chaos because we have gotten away from the CODE. Trick and Bumpy lace this track effortlessly.

Now what would a Trick Trick album be without the smoke records??? Aint shit changed as the OG comes with it featuring the Funk Doc himself “REDMAN” and West Coast Stone on “Who Got it” The smoove 2 step record “Im in love with Mary Jane” feat Ari Wryter” and what might be my personal favorite  “We Blow Dat Gas” feat Berner and Parlae.  Production will always catch my attention and when this track came on i was like “WHAT THE FUCK” I had to run it back before the verse even started cause i was hooked already. Then to see Trick Produced the Joint was a fist pump moment for a brother.

I’ve often heard people say “Trick aint got bars” well, he may not be your lyrical miracle emcee but Trick has never been slacking when it comes to the mic. And although what may be front and center when it comes to rap out of Detroit right now which is the sound of the streets  don’t think we cant rhyme circles around you, and have fun doing it at the same time. Trick has always embraced those who may be considered on the Hip Hop side of things from Jump.

Tracks Like Frontline feat artist like OMG FLu, Hydro, and Courtney Bell bring complex flow yet every word is understood, subject matter from grinding in the streets to finding Yah and inner peace.  “Champion” brings us the feel good Today was a good day vibe and all is well as you GET THESE LUXRY BARS from Marv Won, Ron Dance and Ro Spit aka 101.   Ant Beats bring us another one of our favorite beats on the album on the “My City D’ Shytt” feat Payroll, Street Lord Juan and Oba Rowland.  Trick always got that one thats full of energy and ready to bring a concert to its feet. (If you haven’t seen Trick Trick live your missing out) Fuccitup. The bars a hard and if you come from the Detroit dance era there is something in this track that will surely get you amp, Good Money and P-Dot bring it home on the joint.

Two more joints we got to mention not because they were our least favorite but we felt it was only right to end it with that WEST COAST VIBE (which really came from Detroit but that’s a discussion for another day) With joints feat WC on “Let me In” also feat D12’s Swifty Mcvay and Kuniva  and what i think can be a single around the country “Dis Bitch Movin” feat E-40   This joint goes HARD!!!!

Pay Homage to the OG Detroit’s own   TRICK TRICK
