I’ve mentioned all this a few times prior – last year Gene & Parallel Thought collaborated on a very underrated exercise in stolid gangsta rap, now they’re back with a follow up and it’s even better, etc etc etc. Here is the actual proof to back all this up. Above is the video for album’s lead single (via GG&G), below is the stream of the album itself (via SPIN). This tough and intelligent and often insightful street rap, sound-tracked by nuanced production, aiming for more than just getting turnt up and cycling through the usual range of trap cliches. Good stuff.
