If you think this production couldn’t be any more fitting, I’m with you on that. Bombdrop, the RI producer who’s bound to smash your eardrums with his upcoming full-length Dark Days, has a knack for making quintessential Tragedy Khadafi productions. You’ll be hearing some more in due time.
You may have seen Bombdrop’s name here on TECB before. If you have, congratulations, you’re one of approximately one that has been paying attention to what we publish. Anyway, the reason I’ve mentioned the name is that he’s had an album in the making for a little while now, and I’ve had the chance to hear a couple of tracks in advance. It has the potential to be the biggest hip-hop record to ever come out of the smallest state. “Raw Deal,” featuring Bomb’s fellow Rhode warrior Milez Grimez and two of Duck Down’s grimiest, Ruste Juxx and Rockness Monstah, is the first official single from the much-anticipated Dark Days LP, directed by Vertygo.
If you’re wondering how the rest of the album is shaping up, just think along the lines of a Snowgoons album. But with better emcees. And good production.
Keep it locked to TECB for more news on Bombdrop’s album status.
Trust, this track is a lot nicer than the above art will lead on. “Faces of Humanity” is track from Night Enders (Hans, Spoons, Hayes) which touches on police brutality. Big shout out to Hayes as his verse surrounds the beating and subsequent killing of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill homeless man from Orange County California. This was one of, if not the, biggest story on every news channel for a month after the incident here in L.A. County. It speaks volumes that a cat from Rhode Island dedicated a whole verse to help bring attention to a growing problem. Take a listen for yourself:
“Faces of Humanity” will be on Night Enders’ forthcoming album, Island of Misfit Toys.It’s also produced by Sinama and the big homie Vertygo hooked up the mix and master.
Bangers & Mash being served up soon. In the meanwhile, enjoy this Sense One goodie off of Past, Present, Future featuring Emilio Lopez, with cuts from Sterby Rock and production by Kind Carnage of P.O.W. Camp. It’s Sense’s video debut, shot by the ever-reliable Vertygo.
If you’ve been a TECB reader for any span of time, then you should know these three dudes — Swann Notty x j.DePina x Chachi Carvlho — are favorites of mine. That said, it’s no surprise I’m ecstatic to hear news of the brothers from The Bucket gathering for a full-length album under the name of Thr33 Piece Suit.
