The lead off is Dev79’s juicy “That Philly Raw” which features Dipset’s Bezel. This track rocks with a minimal slow banger beat, an infectious pitched up hook and hard as nails rhymes all colliding to form a hometown classic. Jay Bezel is notable as the only Philly based MC on the Diplomats roster. He’s dropped numerous hot mixtapes such as The Philadelphia Beast and his just released – Savior 2 Da City, hosted by hip hop scene staples Ace McClowd and DJ Whiteowl and featuring guest spots from Lil Wayne, J.R. Writer, Fabolous, Jim Jones, and more. Bezel was also featured on Juelz Santana’s certified Gold album “What the Games Been Missing!” on Def Jam Records.
The heat keeps bubblin’ as El Carnicero (of Slit Jockey Records) laces a sick track for the Cosmic Funk All-Star’s Cee Knowledge and Kai Chi to trade up their unique flows on “Live from the Butcher Shop.” Here we have grimey production with a bumpin’ hip hop vibe that reels you in and doesn’t let go. Cee Knowledge is also known as Doodlebug of the Grammy award winning hip hop group The Digable Planets.
Fresh off of last month’s releases on Diplo’s Mad Decent label and Flamin’ Hotz (Curtis Vodka, Trouble&Bass, etc.) Brooklyn’s Cobra Krames turns out yet another bouncin’ club cut in the form of “Philly Pistol Banger.”
This release is rounded out by Chrissy Murderbot’s (whose had releases on Dead Homies, Clash Records, and Sleazetone) “Shower Together” which is a slick and driving mix of juke and soul sounds and Dev79 & Darrel Asbury’s raunchy electro thumper “Blunt Niggas.”
