On their Jamla release Between Heaven & Hell, Khrysis and Add-2 took to speaking on Add’s city of birth. Chicago has seen another duo/producer pair, Common and No I.D., speak up on the state of affairs in the city. Violence has erupted in the Windy City over the last several years. It’s good to see people start to address it, instead of celebrate it like some artists have been doing.
COP: ADD-2 & KHRYSIS – BETWEEN HEAVEN & HELL (DELUXE EDITION)
9th Wonder has assembled his Army in order to pay tribute to Kung Fu’s baddest mofo in the business. He brings together Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Rapsody, Big Remo, GQ, Torae, HaLo, Thee Tom Hardy, Sean Boog, Sundown of Actual Proof, Mela Machinko and SkyZoo to spit some Dyno-MITE / Dyno-MITE tracks. Who knew that when I was traveling all around LA looking for a theater who was going to carry the movie that it would blow up like this. Black Dynamite is everywhere. He’s got comic books, cartoons, mixtapes, etc. I for one couldn’t be happier. As happy as when I finally found someone carrying the DVD when it dropped. I swear I spent $100 in gas trying to track it down. Back to the mixtape, the Jean Grae track is muy bueno as is Skyzoo’s “Cool De La”. It’s a mixtape which provides the proper back drop for getting back at The Man and his army of Kung Fu Honkeys……
As we get closer to January 28th, Jamla Is The Squad is closer to being copped. 9th Wonder drops another gem from it featuring Soul Brother #1, Lecrae, and Rapsody over production from Khrysis. The result is a groovy little number called “Be Inspired” which does just that.
